we made the most delicious cookies tonight...
I found this recepie online and tweaked it...mine turned out very spongey/cake-y but YUMMY!!3/4 c. applesauce
2 tbsp. organic canola oil
3/4 c. grade B maple syrup (or 1/2 c. sugar and 1/2 c. brown sugar)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
1/2 tsp. salt 2 c. spelt flour or whole wheat flour
1/4 c. instant oats (or 1 individual serving size package instant oatmeal, uncooked)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips (choose vegan chocolate chips if you want your cookies to be vegan)
1/2 c. raisins (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Begin mixing oil, applesauce, and maple syrup or sugars together. Add salt, cinnamon, vanilla, flour, oats, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix together until "just mixed."Add chocolate chips and raisins and mix them in. Scoop 2 tbsp. sized globs of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the edges of the cookies are golden.
Makes 24 cookies.
I changed the flour and oatmeal...I used 1.5 cups of white flour and used 3/4cup baby oatmeal
I also threw in 2 ripe chopped bananas
substituted chunks of bakers chocolate for chocolate chips
