Choco Chip and/or Butterscotch Molasses Flax Cookies

What you need: 

3/4 cup vegan butter
1/4 cup blackstrap molasses, optional
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup maple syrup (or other sweetener)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
2 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
nondairy milk (we use almond milk), to thin
1 cup chocolate chips (we use dark chocolate)
1/2 cup butterscotch morsels, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, mix butter, molasses, sweetener, and vanilla until whipped.
2. Mix in the rest of the dry ingredients and add a little bit of milk at a time to get it to the cookie batter consistency. Fold in chips.
3. Spoon onto a cookie sheet (we have a giant cast iron pizza sheet that works great). Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until done.
This is a very forgiving recipe and you can switch it up to your likin'! My hubby likes more sweetener than he does molasses, so sometimes I use less molasses and more maple syrup.
This makes big, very moist, fluffy cookies!
Source of recipe: My hubby and I made this recipe up one cookie-craving night!

I've heard there are some vegan butterscotch chips at Price Chopper and Food Lion...if they still exist.


where do you get butterscotch chips that are vegan?

We aren't strict vegan (hence the "or"), so we got our non-vegan morsels from the store. Not even sure if vegan morsels exist unless you make your own?

These are DELICIOUS! The molasses is KEY to connecting chocolate chip/butterscotch flavor. I've never been really into chocolate chip cookies, because I don't like biting into the plain ol cookie part, but this cookie is amazing all the way through!  I've tried a lot of vegan cookie recipes, and this is a must try! Thanks!
