Can't remember if I ever mentioned it before but I love making cookies. This is another old recipe of mine that I just had to vegan. It was quite easy too. Swap out the butter for vegan butter, replace the chocolate chips for vegan chocolate chips and use applesauce instead of eggs. Everything else stayed the same.
Something I forgot to mention in the video. You can easily turn these from cookies to bars by spreading the cookie batter into a 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let them cool completely and cut into small bars.
Why don't we get to the recipe. Here is what you will need.
1 1/4 cup room temperature vegan butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup all purpose unbleached flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups quick oats
12 ounce package of vegan chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars.
Mix in the applesauce and vanilla.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually mix into the creamed sugar mix. Do not over mix.
Mix in the oats and then the chocolate chips.
Using a cookie scoop that measures a tablespoon full, scoop the cookie dough onto your parchment lined baking tray. They will spread so place them about two inches apart. Bake 8 - 10 minutes and let them cool for two or three minutes before removing them from the baking tray. Then, transfer them to a cooling rack and let them cool completely.
Makes about 7 dozen wonderful cookies.
Store in an air tight container with a piece of bread. Sounds weird but the bread will help keep the cookies fresh. Enjoy.
