Hi Deb:
I would like to try this recipe. It calls for chocolate chips. I never stock chocolate chips, but always have cocoa powder on hand.

Do you think I can substitute the chocolate chips with cocoa powder and should it be a one for one sub?


Vegan Chocolate Bread

(Makes 2 loaves)


2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup unsweeetened chocolate chips

1 stick (8 tbsp) vegan "butter" like Earth Balance

2 tbsp flaxmeal mixed with 6 tbsp water

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 cup almond milk

1 cup chopped walnuts, lightly toasted

Place the chocolate chips and the "butter" in a small saucepan and heat together on low heat until the chocolate has melted. Stir and set it aside to cool.

In a small bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt

In a larger bowl, mix the flaxmeal-water mixture, vanilla extract, and almond milk.

Add the flour to the liquid mixture in three batches, using a spatula to mix the ingredients well after each addition.

Add the chocolate and walnuts and mix.

Oil and flour two 9 X 5 inch loaf pans. Divide the batter equally among the two and smooth the tops.

Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool for five minutes on a rack and then unmold and continue cooling.

Serve on its own, with a dollop of vegan whipped cream, or with a smidge of vegan butter.
