Happy Valentine’s Day! In the name of love for all things sweet, I’m starting off the semester with a rich, vegan dessert recipe. Chocolate walnut brownie cookies combine the best of two classic desserts. These treats are vegan, gluten-free, and worthy of indulgence. Dive into the splendor of these simple brownie cookies; you deserve dessert.

- 3/4 cup gluten free flour
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Step 1: Mix oil, sugar and vanilla
Step 2: In a separate bowl mix flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda
Step 3: Add mixtures together and stir until evenly mixed (batter should resemble brownie batter).
Step 4: Add walnuts and chocolate chips
Step 5: Cover mixture and place in fridge for two hours
Step 6: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Step 7: Line baking sheets in parchment paper and place tablespoon sized dough balls an inch apart
