Vegan Choc Chip Cookies

We’ve begun the mighty task of collating a new Mona Pizza Cook Book. If you didn’t see the first, it’s a cook book which collects recipes from all sorts of different bands, designers, artists and general creatives. More news to come! Until then, cook up some cookies and chill.

Here is an awesome recipe from the first book, given to us by the awesome Roseanne Barr



3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1 teaspoon flax seeds or linseed 1/2 cup soy milk
2 cups plain flour


Preheat oven to around 180c. Grind the flax seeds in a blender until they become a powder. Add soy milk and blend for another 30 seconds or so. Set aside. In a large bowl sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In a separate large bowl mix together oil and sugar. Add the flax seeds/ soy milk mixture and your vanilla and mix.

Start to put in your dry ingredients and when it starts to get too stiff to mix with a spatula, use your hands until you have good dough. Add the chocolate chips and nuts and mix with your hands again. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and flatten into a disc but not too close together. Place on an un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes, then set them on a wire rack to cool completely.
