I like to mash the things I love together.

Whether it’s cinnamon bun wraps or Earl Grey granola or banana split oatmeal, I don’t like to keep my favorite flavors where they belong– I like to spread them around! I love root beer floats, and I’m basically Cookie Monster, so root beer float cookies? Total no-brainer for me.

Despite my best efforts, though, it doesn’t always work out when I try to force two of my favorites into one tidy package: I’ve tried many different things that resisted all of my attempts to bring them together, and I didn’t know which way this idea would go– but these cookies are a winner! It’s unexpected and fun to experience the lovely root beer taste in a soft, chewy cookie, and the white chocolate chips work well to mimic vanilla ice cream. It marries the best of both worlds into one yummy dessert!


Root Beer Float Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups flour (I used white whole wheat)
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • dash salt
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons root beer extract
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350° and grease baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, oil, vanilla extract, and root beer extract.
  4. Pour wet into dry and mix until dough forms.
  5. Fold in the white chocolate chips.
  6. Drop spoonfuls of the cookie dough onto the baking sheets and flatten slightly.
  7. Bake for 8 minutes and allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for 2-3 more before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies are vegan with the appropriate white chocolate chips.

Thinking Out Loud

  1. Currently reading: The Atomic Weight of Love by Elizabeth J. Church
  2. The Olympics are nearly upon us! When I was a teenager, my life pretty much stopped for two weeks to watch every single thing I could. I’m not quite so intense in my Olympics-watching now, but I’m sure I’ll still catch a fair bit of it. Do you prefer the Summer or Winter Games? I was always a Summer Olympics girl, myself.
  3. I’m particularly excited for the gymnastics. When I was in elementary school, I was absolutely obsessed with the Magnificent Seven— the first U.S. women’s gymnastics team to win the gold. Obsessed. I spent an entire year pretending to be them every time I was on a playground. 🙂
  4. Recipes I tried this week:
    Watermelon Salsa – Running in a Skirt

    I love the sound of these cookies! I don’t generally like anything carbonated, but I make an exception for root beer floats (and sometimes ginger ale)! 😛 These sound so tasty!
