Dark Chocolate & Anise Cookies

An Italian favorite and vegan! That means no cholesterol and they are trans fat free too. Oh, and I should probably mention how delicious they are. My love even commented on how happy he was that I made a texturally proper and delicious 'buttery cookie'. In light of all of this, I want to go ahead and unofficially nominate myself for some type of vegan cookie recipe of the year award or decade-whatever...

I'll stop with the day dreaming and give you the Recipe:

1/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup semolina flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 teaspoon anise seeds
1/4 cup veg oil
2 tbsp. water
1/2 tsp. vanilla
vegan chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper sprayed with oil.

In a bowl, mix the flours, baking powder, anise seeds and salt thoroughly. In another bowl, mix the sugar, oil, water, & vanilla well. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture stirring gently. Once mixed, add the chocolate chips to the mixture. Spoon out onto baking sheet and bake for 10-11 minutes.

Cool and enjoy!

  1. These cookies were great. I love the anise flavor. Truly a testament to the fact that vegan baking can be delicious. I should point out that, unlike most vegan cookies, these were not crumbly. The texture was perfect.

  2. Why thank you Mr. Jack Safro. I appreciate all of your comments. And I too was quite satisfied with myself due to the taste and texture of this cookie. I should have called them 'undercover vegan cookies', since they taste almost buttery yet have no margarine or butter!
    Thanks Again, Stella

  3. I made these cookies for a vegan potluck, and they were the first dessert to disappear from the table! I have since had to email recipes to all of my friends. Brava Stella!
