Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Vegan, Cookies, Chocolate
Serves: 12-15 cookies
  • ¾ cup grapeseed oil
  • 2 cups organic sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1½ tablespoons ground flax seed
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup vegan marshmallows, chopped into small pieces
  • ⅓ cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine the flax seed with the coconut milk to make a flax "egg." Stir well then set aside to thicken. In a medium size bowl, sift together cocoa, flour, baking soda and salt.
  2. Cream the sugar and oil with mixer on medium speed. Add the flax "egg" and vanilla. Keep mixing until combined. Reduce speed to low, slowly add the dry ingredients until the dough is formed. If the dough seems too dry or grainy, add 1-2 more Tbsp oil.
  3. With your hands, mix in the vegan chocolate chips, macadamia nuts, then finally the vegan marshmallow pieces.
  4. Roll dough into 1" balls and flatten them thick into disks about 1½" in diameter. Press the cookies tightly to ensure the dough holds together. Be sure the marshmallow pieces aren't touching each other as this will affect how the cookies bake.
  5. Place the Vegan Rocky Road Cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet covered in parchment paper about 1" apart. Bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Leave the cookies on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack with a spatula to cool completely.
*To make ice cream sandwiches, freeze the cookies for 10 minutes when they are done baking. Spoon very firm vegan chocolate ice cream onto a cookie, then sandwich another cookie on top. The more solid the ice cream is, the easier it will be to work with. Melty ice cream will give you trouble!
*Coat the sides in finely chopped vegan chocolate chips, vegan marshmallows, and macadamia nuts. Freeze the ice cream sandwiches for a minimum of one hour to set.
