So really this is just a space where I let you in on how weird I really am. And it’s slightly less awkward because we’re not face to face, so I don’t have to see your horrified you-did-what?! expression.
Yes. I did.
I put thyme in my chocolate chip cookies. And you know what? It wasn’t half bad. You should probably go try it too. Like, right now.
In other news… Twister: the game that ties you up in knots. Can we bring that back?
Thyme Chocolate Chip Cookies (vegan)
half cup coconut oil, softened
three quarters cup brown sugar
one quarter cup sugar
quarter cup almond milk
one tablespoon ground flax
half tablespoon vanilla
two tablespoons fresh thyme, stems removed
one and two thirds cups flour
one teaspoon baking powder
half teaspoon salt
one heaping cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream coconut oil and sugars on medium speed for about three minutes. Add almond milk, flax, vanilla and thyme and keep mixing for another minute or so – mine wouldn’t fully emulsify but that’s okay.
Sift in dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Spoon onto prepared baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
