Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
I recently had someone tell me that vegan calories didn't count....hmmmm.....I am not really sure about that, but I suppose that you can feel a little bit better about vegan chocolate chip cookies than the alternative.
I posted the recipe a while back, but I have been messing with it some more. Here is the chocolate chip cookie recipe I have been fiddling with for ages:
2 1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 tsp. EnerG Egg Replacer +4 Tbs. warm water (whisk together separately and then add). A box of this stuff lasts a long time and it works in place of eggs. Best stuff I know of...no they didn't pay me for that.
1 c. vegan margarine (easy to find, my favorite is Earth Balance)
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar
2 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1-2 c. vegan chocolate chips (you could also mix in oatmeal, pecans, raisins, or whatever sounds good to you just no more than two cups of chips and other stuff total).
Pre-heat oven to 375 F. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Cream the sugars and the vegan margarine. Add the vanilla and egg replacer to the sugar mixture, mix it all together. Combine the wet and dry and mix thoroughly. I like to use a hand mixer. Once all combined add the chocolate chips and anything else you want.
Drop by rounded spoonful on an un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 9-12 minutes (or just keep peeking until the cookies are golden, that is how I roll).
Eat with a glass of soymilk, or if you aren't hardcore enough for soy milk I recommend vanilla almond milk.
