Vegan (Dairy-free, Egg-free) Chocolate Chip Cookies

April 11, 2008 at 1:38 pm | Posted in Food Friday | Leave a comment

These cookies are delicious and fit right in for us with our dairy and egg allergies. Every time I make them, people rave about them. They can’t believe their “special” in any way. You know what else is cool about them? You don’t have to use a mixer! Which could be good or bad, depending how you look at it. Good – becuase they are easier to make (no need to lug out the big mixer). Bad – because they are easier to make and you could find yourself making them more often. 🙂

I discovered this recipe, believe it or not, through You Tube. However, the printed version was a little harder to find. So, I will print it here for you:

2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix all together with fork.

1/2 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup maple syrup (I use Agave Nectar because of the glycemic index)
1/2 tsp molasses

Mix all together in the measuring cup.

Then add the liquid ingredients to the dry. Stir all together until moist. If it seems a little too dry, add a teeny bit of water (we’re talking maybe 1 or 2 tsp). Add in the chocolate chips. Place in little mounds on cookies sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

YUMMY!

Here’s the video for it –

Hello Again

So, it has definitely been a while since I have posted on here. In fact, a friend of mine even commented recently about whether there was something messed up with my blog because it wasn’t showing any recent posts. To which I told her, there was no glitch in the system, just hadn’t written in a while. Mostly it’s because my health has gotten better and I don’t find myself reading as much about it and gathering information to pass on to you all.

But tonight, someone at an event I was attending mentioned they came across this blog through a Google search (that’s pretty cool). She was telling me how much she liked it, so I got inspired again! 🙂 Therefore, I am going to try and write again here.

Now, I am going to ask this question, but realizing I may have lost some readers during this time of not writing, so we’ll see how it goes. But, what pieces of the puzzle (in health and nutrition) are you curious about or what pieces are you struggling with yourself in your own health? Comment here and let’s dialog about it.
