Incredible Vegan Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

These amazing cookies are filled with chocolatey mint goodness and are a personal favorite of mine during the holidays.



2 cups all purpose flour

2-1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup cocoa powder

2 cups raw sugar

1/2 cup vegetable oil

3/4 cup applesauce

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp peppermint extract


For the Coating:

1/2 cup raw sugar

1/2 cup powdered sugar


In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.


In a separate bowl, combine cocoa powder, sugar, applesauce, oil, and extracts and mix well. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix.


Refrigerate dough ideally overnight as it should be chilled to work with properly.


Remove chilled dough and roll into roughly 1" to 1-1/2" balls. Mix the ingredients for the coating in a small bowl. Roll each ball in the coating mixture and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350F.


Enjoy!
