Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    2 cups unbleached flour
    2 tsps baking powder
    1/2 tsp.salt
    cinnamon to taste (optional)
    1/2 cup vegan chocolate or carob chips - or put in as many as you like
    1 cup raw sugar (turbinado #1, sucanat works too but sucks up a lot of the moisture)
    1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
    1/4 cup applesauce
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 cup water

Directions

VERY IMPORTANT-make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. It will work if they're not at room temp but it works MUCH better if they are. Also while your oven is pre-heating put the cookie sheets you are going to use on top of the oven so they get preheated as well. Preheat oven to 350.

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

In a medium size bowl mix vegan sugar, oil, and applesauce. (or skip the applesauce and use a full 1/2 cup oil) Mix it 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. Put them in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes and then flip and rotate the sheets.(top to bottom,and 180 degree rotation) Bake another 4 minutes and check them.

The cookies are done when they seem a little bit softer then you want them to be. They will harden up some as they cool. I usually go in two minute increments from here untill they get to where I like them.

Take them out when they are done and move them to wire cooling racks. If they split or come apart when you try to remove them let them sit on the pan for 2 minutes before transferring them to the racks.

Serves: almost two dozen
