Equipment

  • baking sheet
  • mixer
  • large bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 sticks vegan butter
  • 1/2 cups cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan egg replacer JUST egg used
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour

  • 3/4 cup vegan dark chocolate bar roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp orange zest optional

Over Top:

  • 2 tsp coarse sea salt over top

Instructions

  • In a skillet, Pan-toast the hazelnuts over high heat for 2-3 minutes or until they start to give off a toasty aroma. Set aside to cool, then roughly chop. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the sugars, vegan egg, vegan butter and vanilla.
  • Add in the baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour. Beat until fluffy.
  • Fold in the chocolate and chopped hazelnuts.
  • The dough should be nice and sticky, yet firm enough to roll into large dough balls.
  • Place dough balls in a bowl or on a baking sheet and freeze for at least 30 minutes. 1-2 hours works too.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.
