Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 tablespoons vegan butter
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon cane sugar (or use white)
flax egg: (1 teaspoon ground flaxseed mixed with 1 tablespoon water)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond milk (or water)
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon mat. In a small bowl, mix the flax egg and set aside.

With a fork and some muscle power, beat the vegan butter and sugars until fluffy. Beat in the flax egg. Stir in the remaining ingredients, then fold in the chocolate chips.

Shape round balls of dough and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 mins. on the baking sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack for another 10 minutes.
