Chocolate Chip Cookies

October 15, 2006 at 5:03 am 4 comments

There is nothing better than thinking you are completely out of groceries…and then discovering that you have exactly enough to make a delicious batch of vegan carob chip cookies! Oooooh!
These are horribly horrible for you…believe me, not everything vegan is healthy. But they are so yummy. Actually, I should give myself some credit for using whole wheat pastry flour, but even that is canceled out by the CUP of margarine! We rarely make cookies though…so this is a definite treat. Taken from one of my favorite cookbooks, Vegan With a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moscowitz.

1 cup non-hydrogenated margarine, at room temperature (I like Earth Balance Organic)
1 1/4 cup dry sweetener (I use rapadura)
1 T molasses
2 t vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 1/2 cups vegan carob chips…or semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together the margarine and sweetener until fluffy. Add the molasses and vanilla. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls spaced a little over 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until just slightly browned. Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack.

    My hubby made these last night for my b-day and used coconut oil instead of the margarine…they turned out really mushy…I think he added some rice milk b/c they were really dry but any thoughts???

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
