BRM Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies


I recently went on a BRM shopping spree because Vitacost had a deal going on where you received a free BRM GF Pizza Crust Mix for spending $15 on BRM products [as of 8/26 the deal is still current].

What I needed from Vitacost was the GF Pancake Mix, but my cart ended up containing GF Pancake Mix, GF Brownie Mix, GF Yellow Cake Mix, GF Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix, and GF Pizza Crust Mix. Obviously, I’m attracted to these BRM mixes because they are vegan / dairy-free / egg-free! (Before now, the only one that I’ve tried was the pancake mix.)

The ingredient list on the bag looks like this:

1 package BRM GF Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1 large egg
3 T water
1 stick (1/2 C) butter, very soft

Dry ingredients

Instead, I veganized the recipe like this:
(Notice that I made a half recipe! Although I used more liquid, the batter didn’t seem too wet.)

 1/2 package BRM GF Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1 flax egg (= 1 T ground flax + 3 T water)
3 T non-dairy milk (I used my homemade oat/cashew milk)
1/4 C Earth Balance, soft

I followed the baking instructions on the bag. That’s it!

I made an ice cream sandwich using 2 cookies and some ice cream (made from frozen bananas!) in the middle…YUM!

Maple Cakes


Is it a cookie? Is a cake? Is it both? These vegan Maple Cakes are a little bit crispy on the outside but fluffy and soft on the inside. They are just sweet enough! You can whip out this recipe quickly because the quantity is perfect for just one cookie sheet. I made these for my three-year old and he said, “Mmm, good!”


1 C + 1/8 C all-purpose flour
1/4 t each: baking powder, baking soda, salt
organic cane sugar for sprinkling


“Flax egg”: 1 T ground flax + 3 T water
1/2 C pure maple syrup
1/4 C + 1/8 C Earth Balance
1/2 t vanilla extract


  1. Mix your “flax egg” in a small bowl and set aside for a few minutes.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. In another medium bowl, mash the maple syrup into the Earth Balance (lumps are okay!).
  4. Add the vanilla and flax egg to the maple syrup mash.
  5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients (except the sugar for sprinkling).
  6. Use a regular spoon to scoop little batter balls onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet, then smash them down somewhat. It should make about 20.
  7. Sprinkle a little bit of organic cane sugar on the top of each before baking.
  8. Bake at 400 degrees for up to 15 minutes (depends on your oven).
  9. Move to a wire rack about a minute after they come out of the oven.
  10. Serve to three year old after they cool off a bit!
