Vegan Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Reduced Fat & Whole Wheat))

In the 21st century, we don’t draw birthday cards and send them via snail mail. Instead, we design one using Adobe Illustrator then post it on the receivers’ Facebook wall. That way, the card won’t take up any real space in our rooms. 

Seriously, what happened to pen pals? Wanna be my pen pal? Please email me at qiting93@hotmail.com. I’ll be a good pen pal. And reply all your letters cus its fun. I mean it. I’m serious. REALLY!

.

Oh and, please celebrate for me. I just successfully ‘deactivated’ my FB account(a couple minutes after the birthday card). Apparently, the button is under the ‘security’, not ‘general’ tab (why the hell is it a sub-function of the ‘security’ function???? It makes zero sense!). I think I’m kinda dumb. 

I used to wish that my bro had never been born (like when I was 4 and he was trying to make my Barbie dolls wrestle–dumb). But then I started imagining life without him and it seemed to be an impossible task. My mom always took my brother’s side (because he was younger and smaller, and cuter, and handsome… among other things) but he never took it to his advantage. Instead when my mom started hitting(punishing) me with her giant paintbrush (that’s what you get when your mom’s an artist. Mind you, its a heavy paintbrush), he would rush over to take the hit for me and plead my mom to let me off. Told you he’s a nice guy. 

When I was 6 and him 4, my mom was at the stage where she would reprimand (see? I have vocab! anyway, I think she had depression or something. I was young; I didn’t know) my dad about coming home late, not spending enough time taking care of family stuff and blah blah blah. (The ‘scoldings’ are ongoing, in fact one just happened a couple hours ago) Every time a fight happened (a one-sided thing, so maybe ‘fight’ is not the right word?), I would grab the little guy and lock him and I into our room because we were so frightened and we were both red and blotchy from crying. I knew my mom had the keys to our room and it may be our turn (to get a scolding) next so I would find spaces in the room for us to hide in. Usually, he would hide in his wardrobe and I in mine, but when he was crying really badly we would hide together in the giant cupboard for books. If there was no brother and only me, I think I’ll be lonely and sad on top of being frightened. 

And I would never forget the first (and only) time we told each other our crushes. I was 11 and he was 9(!!!). We pinky sweared on not telling anyone else our crushes (I hate this word). It was so casual. We were doing our homework actually, I have no idea how we got to doing that. This happened. Would never have without said bro.

End of rambling.

So, a couple days ago, I started my Request a Recipe Makeover thing. Today, I’m going to start honoring one of the requests.

.

.

This recipe is from Kit Kat. She requested it to be veganised and lightened up.

Thanks for the recipe, Kit Kat! They reminded me of Famous Amos cookies, which’s smell ought be bottled up and sold.

Ingredients

46g cocoa powder, sieved
35g oil

75g all purpose flour
75g Whole Wheat flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

60g vegetable shortening
45g reduced fat margarine
90g light brown sugar
70g white sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg worth of Ener-G Foods Egg Replacer (pre-refrigerated)

100g semi-sweet chocolate chips

.

.

Directions

Note that a hand mixer can be used in place of the stand mixer for this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. Mix oil and cocoa powder
.
.
Put the flours, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl.
.
.
Cream the shortening, reduced fat margarine and sugars in another bowl.
Add the cocoa mixture and mix together.
.

.
Beat in the vanilla extract and egg replacer, and then mix in the dry ingredients.
Finally stir in the chocolate chips.
.
.
Scoop out 12 equal-sized mounds – an ice cream scoop and a palette knife are the best tools for the job – and place on a lined baking sheet about 6cm apart. Do not flatten them.
.
Cook for 18 minutes, testing with a cake tester to make sure it comes out semi-clean and not wet with cake batter. If you pierce a chocolate chip, try again.
.
Leave to cool slightly on the baking sheet for 4-5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to harden as they cool.

The bottom of the cookie is what, to me, defines a chocolate chip cookie.

Take a bite! You deserve it!

.

Its incredibly, yummiliciously crispy and chocolate-ty. Its a chocolate lover’s heaven! If you under- cook it, (out a minute before time given), it will be gooey and slightly chewy. 

.

Be GRATEFUL and thank Kit Kat!!! :D

.

I have a question for you. Its going to be pretty silly but here I go…

Would you rather be fat and look younger than your age (like you look 20 when you’re actually 30) or slim and look older than your age (like you look 40 when you’re actually 30)?

I’m just curious! 

Or I’m actually asking because I can’t answer that!

PS: I’ve assembled my ‘crap’ pieces like the one below the recipe in to an index you can find here:
