Chocolate Chip Curry Cookies with Sriracha

There are few social media behaviors I loathe more than the wannabe influencer or business page copy and pasting their generic ass comment on every pic using whichever hashtag they've decided to stalk that day. Hell no I'm not going to check out your vegan page so I can get inspiration on my weight loss journey, Brittney. I've been vegan longer than you've been alive so why don't you follow my page for inspiration?! Ask any of my insta followers, I am ruthless when it comes to these types of comments and I don't let them slide or go unchecked. Some pages have gone so far as to block my ass because they were spamming me and couldn't handle being called out on it. I'm not really sure why I am going off about this right now it's not relevant at all to this recipe. The only common thread here is social media.

Uncomfortable Pivot: I know y'all probably think these cookies sound as pleasing as getting 100 copy and paste comments every hour for the rest of your life but I promise you these cookies are the shit. I repeat: this is one badass cookie! I taste tested these cookies on two brutally honest subjects: 1) a child with a very picky palate, and 2) a meat and potatoes gal who thinks all vegan food is disgusting isn't it afraid to tell me every single day. Both of these test subjects declared these cookies to the bomb.com (is that still a thing?). I also taste tested these cookies on 4 other folks but their opinions don't count because they're too supportive.

 NOTES: 

Don't have coconut flour? That's ok - you can sub in 1 cup of your fave flour. 

Don't have, or don't want to use, protein powder? Totes cool, yo. Reasons why I used vanilla protein powder (Vega Sport is my hands down fave!)
  1. up my protein intake (obviously); 
  2. good as a flour sub; 
  3. adds to the sweetness and overall flavor with out upping the sugar.
If you don't have or don't want to use protein powder here's how to sub it out: If you're using coconut flour add an additional tablespoon. If you're using any other kind of flour, add an additional 1/3 of a cup. Might wanna add in a few extra tbsp maple syrup as well.

Can we talk about the curry real quick: y'all I'm not about to make you feel insecure if you're spices aren't the freshest or most expensive but for the sake of this cookie I do recommend getting some fresh ass curry if your's has been sitting too long on your spice rack. I used Chef Wheeler of Seasonality Spices Maharajah and it really made the flavors of this cookie pop. This curry was the front and center star of the whole event but Chef Wheeler's Curry also knows exactly when to take a step back and let the other ingredients have their moment in the spotlight. 10/10 do recommend.

Chocolate Chip Curry Cookies

1/2 c coconut oil, softened
4 tbsp curry powder
1/4 c coconut flour *see notes above for other options*
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder *see above below for other options*
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 c coconut milk
1 tbsp ground flax
1/2 c maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c semisweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp sriracha, optional but highly recommended
  1. Preheat to 350
  2. Cream together your coconut oil and curry and set aside. 
  3. In large bowl mix together your dry ingredients (flour through baking soda).
  4. In a separate bowl mix together your coconut milk through vanilla extract. 
  5. Now guess what we're going to do? We are going to mix the dry and wet ingredients together!! Once that is done fold in your chocolate chips. 
  6. Here's the optional but strongly suggested next step: drizzle 1 tbsp of sriracha across the top of your cookie dough. DO NOT MIX IT IN - this will "marble" or "ripple" - or whatever the hell you wanna call it - the sriracha through the cookie. Can you say fancy AF?!
  7. Form 2 tbsp of dough into a ball and press into cookie shape and place carefully on your cookie sheet. Bake for 18 minutes.
  8. Take a cookie to a friend and impress the shit outta them.
UP NEXT: I believe I've got a restaurant review to share with you.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
