Orange Agave Chocolate Chip Cookies

I felt like baking this afternoon.  So I did.  I felt like something with chocolate chips, and this is the first recipe I saw, so Bingo!  A delicious cookie, not too sweet (because it uses agave nectar not sugar), and kind of moist, not crunchy – hubby has already had three of them tonight, so I don’t expect them to last too long in this house!

Forgive the photo – I have a new mobile phone with a new camera (unfortunately not as good as my previous one) and it doesn’t have auto-focus.  Ahh well, I’ll learn!

Orange Agave Chocolate Chip Cookies

Orange Agave Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 2/3 cup agave nectar
  • 2/3 cup canola oil (I used almond oil)
  • 30 mL non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
  • 3 tsp ground flax seeds (aka linseeds)
  • 1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Grated zest of 1 orange (about 3 tsp of zest)
  • 1.5 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • a generous 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used Sweet William brand)


Preheat oven to 175c.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together agave nectar, oil, non-dairy milk, flax seeds, vanilla and orange zest until smooth, about 2 mins.  Sift in the plain flour, wholemeal flour, baking soda and salt and mix to form a soft dough.  Fold in the chocolate chips.

Drop generously rounded tablespoons of dough 5 cm apart onto the baking sheets.  Bake cookies for 12-14 mins, until the edges are golden.  Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 mins, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.  Store in a tightly covered container.
