Are you a Choco-holic like me? Have you ever wondered what a bite of heaven tastes like? If so, you must try this recipe. It's the perfect blend of a chocolate, chocolate chip cookie and a brownie. It's has the slightly chewy interior of a brownie and the crisp exterior of a cookie. I make these for non-vegans all the time and it blows their minds. No one ever even suspects its vegan. As a bonus you can even use the dough to make cookies too.
Cook Time: 1 hour
Makes: 1 Cake
All you need is:
3/4 Cup of Oil (I’ve used vegetable oil, olive oil and grapeseed oil and they all have worked out in this recipe. You can always use vegan butter too.)
1/2 Cup of Almond Milk
1 Cup of White Sugar
3/4 Cup of Packed Light Brown Sugar
1-1/2 Tsp of Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup of Cacao Powder or Cocoa Powder
1/2 Cup of Almond Butter (You can use whatever kind you like, plain, roasted, maple....it doesn't matter)
1-1/2 Cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips I used Ghirardelli Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips (Lot’s of semi-sweet chocolate chips are vegan, but be sure to read the labels. You will notice that many of them say “May contain milk’ on the packaging. That means that they were processed using equipment that is also used to process products that may contain milk. This is done as a precaution for people that have allergies.)
2-3/4 Cups of Self -Rising Flour
1/8 Tsp of Salt
In a large bowl combine the oil, almond milk, light brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract, and almond butter and mix well.
The cake will have a firm exterior like a cookie but the inside will be slightly chewy like a brownie.
The wet ingredients, plus the cocoa powder.

The dough after adding the flour. It's so delicious......try not to eat it all. Lol
I used a 9 inch pan but you can always use a 10 inch if you don't have a 9 inch.
I hope that you all enjoy!!
