Chocolate Chip Marble Cookies {dairy-free and egg-free!}

Hey guys,

I have a sensational chocolate chip marble cookie recipe for all to indulge in today. From my understanding everyone has a favorite style of chocolate chip cookies and mine happens to be more crispy on the outside, but still tender in the inside and perfectly balanced between sweet and salty. How do you take your chocolate chip cookies?

In my humble opinion marrying double chocolate chip cookies with classic chocolate chip cookies is decadent without being too rich. Don't get me wrong, I do love my chocolate on chocolate but baking these cookies gives me the option of eating both flavors in one shot! ;) They also look pretty radical, am I right?

Chocolate Chip Marble Cookies {egg-free and can be made dairy-free}
makes 2 dozen or 30 for bite size cookies
inspired by Top with Cinnamon and recipe adapted from The Joy of Vegan Baking

4 ½ teaspoons Ener-g Egg Replacer
6 tablespoons water
1 cup solidified coconut oil or softened butter
¾ cup natural cane sugar
¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
½ teaspoon blackstrap molasses
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 ¼ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups dairy-free chocolate chips
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a food processor or blender, whip the egg replacer and water together, until it's thick and creamy. Blending it in a food processor or blender results in a better consistency than what you could get if you did it by hand.

In a large bowl, cream the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. (I always use my stand mixer on medium-high speed because I'm lazy and it comes out much fluffier.) Add the egg replacer mixture, and thoroughly combine. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually beat the flour mixture into the wet mixture until it begins to form a dough. When it is almost thoroughly combined, separate half of the batter into a medium sized bowl. Add unsweetened cocoa powder to the separate half of batter and mix until combined. Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chip to each batter.

On a clean surface scoop up a spoonful of each dough and roll into balls. Sandwich the classic chocolate chip cookie ball with the double chocolate chip cookie ball, and roll together slightly to combine flavors. Drop marble cookie balls onto cookie sheets and press down slightly. Bake 8-12 minutes. After a couple minutes transfer to wire racks to cool completely. 

Go ahead and enjoy these cookies with a loved one,
