Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
Sometimes, you just want a chocolate chip cookie.  You want it now and you want it to be homemade.  I've been holding onto this recipe for several years (I have no idea where it came from) and I decided to try it.  Kim said they were really good, although, not as good as the ones with butter and eggs.  But, for a vegan recipe, he said it was a winner.  Hope you like it!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Makes 8 - 12 cookies depending on size

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup real maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon  molasses
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, sift the flours, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt, and stir until well combined. 
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, molasses and vanilla, then stir in the oil until well combined. 
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry, along with the chocolate chips, and stir through until just well combined (do not overmix).
  5. Place large spoonfuls of the batter on the cookie sheet and flatten a little.
  6. Bake for 11 minutes, until just golden (if you bake for much longer, they will dry out). 
  7. Let cool on the sheet for no more than 1 minute (again, to prevent drying), then transfer to a cooling rack.
  8. Let them cool a little before eating.
  9. Enjoy!
