#DairyFree Chocolate Chip Espresso Cookies

anabelle taub pet friendly realtor

 

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some delicious vegan sweet treat recipes. I truly hope you’ll enjoy these rich vegan espresso chocolate chip cookies as much as the friend I baked these for did. 🙂

You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons espresso coffee ground up finely
  • 1 cup vegan margarine
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon (go wild here — if you love cinnamon .. go for 3/4 of a teaspoon) ** optional – if you don’t care for cinnamon, feel free to omit it
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup semisweet dairy-free chocolate chips

Baking insturctions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • In one bowl whisk together baking powder, cinnamon (optional), flour and salt.
  • In another bowl whisk the butter (make sure it’s room temperature) with espresso powder until well combined. I love my KitchenAid – it does a perfect job each time! Proceed to add in the powdered and brown sugar; making sure they combine well!
  • Slowly mix in and incorporate the flour mixture. A little at a time (I’d say about 1/4 cup at a time). Stir in chocolate chips.
  • I use a cookie dough scooper to try to ensure that my cookies will all be uniform in size. If you don’t have one – just use a regular tablespoon and spoon out a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough.
  • Spread evenly on cookie sheet (don’t forget the parchment paper). Space out about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake between 12-14 minutes. I find 12 minutes in my oven works perfectly. A good indicator is when the edges are browned some what.

Allow the cookies to cool and serve up with a glass of cashew or almond milk!

From my Vegan kitchen to yours! I sure hope these hit the sweet tooth spot!

55+ Active Adult & Pet-Friendly Communities in South Florida

"55 and over pet-friendly adult housing broward county"

Good day to all,

This blog post is written with a bit of frustration behind it! I am sighing as I write this. Ugh! Why don’t more adult communities understand how absolutely therapeutic pets can be to their human companions? I was recently contacted by a lovely lady who asked me to help her find a pet-friendly 55+ community in SE South Florida. She thought that as a pet-friendly agent/realtor I would have good news for her. (Sighing again!). I only wish I could have an entire list of options for her, but I don’t! Not because I don’t know the area or communities where one can purchase a moderately priced 2 bedroom apartment – but because the sad truth is that 95% of 55 and over communities do not permit pets. In fact, their websites almost seem to be mentally allergic when it comes to the term “pets!”

Thus, I’d like to include some communities I have found that not only offer an active lifestyle for our lovely senior neighbors, but ta dah — they allow pets too! A rare, and I mean RARE commodity.

Here’s the list  of 55+ pet-friendly lifestyle communities in Broward county (and surrounding area) in no particular order of preference:

  1. Cypress Lakes of Florida (located in Lakeland, FL): Here’s the link: http://www.cypresslakesfla.com/about-us/pet-friendly.aspx
  2. Hollybrook Golf and Tennis Club Condominiums (Pembroke Pines, FL): Small pet up to 15 pounds permitted. I don’t have a direct link to the community, but please feel free to Contact Me for available condos for sale.
  3. Century Village of Palm Beach (link includes pet-friendly association info): http://village-blog-and-chat.blogspot.com/2012/09/century-village-pet-friendly.html
  4. Palm Village Club (Dania, Fl). Small pet allowed. I don’t have a direct link to the community, but please feel free to Contact Me for available condos for sale.
  5. While for today’s list (no worries, I will continue to add to the list in the coming months) as you can see the choices are limited, I know of some wonderful mobile home/pre-fabricated homes (I promise the communities and the homes are beautiful) in the Dania, Davie and surrounding areas. I’ll be glad to send you over some information.

The search continues …

Until the next post. Wishing you all a splendid day!
