I've never eaten vegan cookies before. Mostly because I found a recipe for cookies on a bodybuilding site that also happened to be vegan, made them, and they were disgusting.
I've been craving some chocolate chip cookies. I found this recipe and they were GREAT! I made the regular version, but instead of 2 teaspoons of vanilla...I did one and a half vanilla and half teaspoon almond. They are SO GOOD. Also, this is easy to make even without any fancy equipment. All I did was use a cheapo coffee grinder to grind up the flax seed. But if you have something like Ener-G egg replacer you can use that instead of the flax+soymilk mixture.http://www.theppk.com/recipes/dbreci...p?RecipeID=111
Baking Sheet, Blender, 2 large bowls, mixing spatula, cookie sheets
3/4 cup canola oil
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon whole flax seeds
1/2 cup soymilk
2 cups all purp flour
3/4 cup dutch processed cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Grind the flax seeds on high in a blender until they become a powder. Add soymilk and blend for another 30 seconds or so. Set aside.
In a large bowl sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
In a seperate large bowl cream together oil and sugar. Add the flax seed/soy milk mixture and mix well. Add the vanilla.
Fold in the dry ingredients in batches. When it starts to get too stiff to mix with a spatula, use your hands until a nice stiff dough forms. Add the chocolate chips and mix with your hands again.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls and flatten into a disc that's about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about an inch apart.
Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes, then set them on a wire rack to cool completely.
For chocolate chocolate chip cherry cookies, replace 1 teaspoon of the vanilla with almond extract, and replace 1/2 the chocolate chips with dried cherries.
For chocolate nut cookies, replace 1 teaspoon of the vanilla with a nut extract (almond, walnut, what have you) and replace the chocolate chips with 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (hazelnuts, almonds or walnuts all are good)."
