  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour or use a gluten-free baking blend to make gluten-free
  • 2 tablespoons special dark cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup mild oil or use vegan yogurt to make an oil-free version
  • 1/4 cup nondairy milk


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 2 large cookie sheets by oiling or covering with parchment paper.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and cut in with a pastry cutter or 2 forks.
  • Use your hands to make a ball. If the dough is too crumbly to hold together once you ball it up, add another tablespoon of nondairy milk and try again.
  • Take 1/4 of the dough at a time and gently roll out the dough on a floured cutting board into a medium thickness. Note: your cookies will stay darker if you mix in some cocoa powder with the flour you use on your cutting board.
  • Use bat and cat cookie cutters to cut out shapes and gently place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Repeat until all the dough is used. If you use medium-sized cookie cutters you will bake about 10 minutes. The cookies will be crunchy.
