Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Even though it is 100 plus degrees out today, it was a little overcast and we were inside watching soccer. It seemed like a good idea to bake some cookies with the kids. I decided to try a recipe for vegan chocolate chip cookies. I have to say, the kids and I thought they were really good! Give them a try and see what you think...I have them in the freezer to save for special (occasional) treats in school lunches next month. :)

I found them on
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp.salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon (this is the true maker of these cookies!)
  • vegan chocolate or carob chips - put in as many as you like
  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil (I used coconut oil which worked really well)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon. Add chips. Make a well in the center and set aside.

In a medium size bowl mix vegan sugar and oil well.  Add the vanilla and then add the water. Mix it well.  Add the wet to the well in the dry. Mix it well but be careful not to overwork it.  Add more chips if you need to.  Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 12 minutes.

The cookies are done when they seem a little bit softer than you want them to be. They will harden up some as they cool.

Remove from the oven and let them sit on the pan for a couple of minutes before transferring them to wire cooling racks.

Serves: almost two dozen
