The Best Chocolate Chunk Cookies

No kidding, the best—ever. Vegan, not vegan, healthy or not, everyone who tastes these says they are the best.

Makes 28–30 cookies

8 tablespoons (1 stick) vegan buttery “baking sticks,” like Earth Balance, softened
½ cup brown rice syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ cup coconut sugar
1 ½ cups 365 Organic Every Day Value™ Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
Pinch ground cinnamon
Pinch sea salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup coarsely chopped pecans
3.5 ounces 365 Every Day Value™ Dark Chocolate Mini Chunks

Preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Using a hand mixer or a whisk, blend the buttery stick with syrup, vanilla, and coconut sugar until creamy. Mix in flours, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder/soda to form a stiff cookie dough. Fold in nuts and chocolate until incorporated through the batter. Wet a teaspoon and your fingers, and spoon tablespoons of cookie dough onto the lined sheets, allowing room for the cookies to spread, (about a dozen cookies per standard sheet). Bake for 14-15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow cookies to stand for 2 minutes on the sheet tray. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
