After Alex's birthday dinner, I made chocolate hazelnut chip cookies and hot chocolate. These cookies are the kind I make almost every time, but often rotate which nut butter I use. This recipe will work with peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, sun butter, maybe even coconut butter? I don't know, I haven't tried. Coconuts are a sort of erroneous nut, though. Right? 



My hot chocolate recipe goes like this: Pour almond/soy milk in your vitamix. Toss a handful of chocolate chips in. Turn on. Let rip for like 6 minutes until it's hot. Drink.


 It doesn't hurt to live 10 blocks from the vegan marshmallow factory either...

Chocolate Hazelnut Chip Cookies:

2/3 cup chocolate hazelnut butter, I used Justin's
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/3 cup chocolate soy milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut sugar (or sub with more brown sugar)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon hazelnut extract (or sub more vanilla)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips (enjoy life brand is easy to find)

Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Line 2 baking sheets with silpat or parchment.
In a large bowl, whisk together the nut butter, sugars, soy milk, cornstarch, and extracts.
Sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Mix together with a fork, and then knead in the mini chips.
Form into 1 tablespoon-sized balls and place on prepared sheet, about 2" apart.
Bake for 9 minutes and let cool for 5 before moving them to a wire rack.
As they cool, they get crispier on the outside but stay soft in the middle.
