seasame chocolate chip cookies.


These cookies are going down as one of my absolute favorites. I mean – I love a good chocolate chip cookie, and i love what seasame seeds do to help make these stand out.  ….And seasame seeds are healthy, right?!

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) earth balance, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
Ener-g egg replacer mixed with water, equal to two eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 to 1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup black sesame seeds
Coarse sea salt

Prepare your cookie sheets and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.

In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together earth balance and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3–5 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the egg replacer mixed with water and beat on medium speed until mixture is fluffy, about 1–2 minutes. Beat in the vanilla and soy sauce. Add the dry ingredients, all at once, to the earth balance mixture. Beat on low speed until just combined. Add the sesame seeds and chocolate chunks and fold together with a spatula until well combined.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place 1/4 cup black sesame seeds in a small bowl.
Scoop cookie dough by the heaping tablespoonful. Roll into a ball and coat with black sesame seeds. Place on prepared baking sheets. Bake for about 12 minutes, until lightly browned around the edges. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container.
