Food Love: Rocky Road Cookies

These are good bc you can sub out a few different things. In the recipe from Vegan Cookies that this was inspired by (read: mostly copied), they use white chocolate chips instead of marshmallows and non-dairy milk instead of real whole milk. Also, bc of my own stupidity, I had to use walnuts bc I didn't have almonds like I thought. der. Note: STILL DELICIOUS.

1/2 cup whole milk
2 Tbsp. flax seeds (real recipe called for ground flax)
1/2 cup canola oil
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups plus 2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet)
1/2 cup almonds (or walnuts if you have to)
1/2 cup mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350˚F. In a large bowl combine milk, flax, oil, sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix all that together, then add the dry ingredients (but not chips or nuts or marshmallows). Then once that's mixed, add the rest of the ingredients by folding them in. Put 2-3 tablespoon dollops of batter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I should tell you here that this is where I ruined everything. I used wax paper and put it on the cookie pan the wrong way (wax side down) so all the cookies stuck to it. They were good once I got that off, though. Good luck!
