Chocolate chip cookies are one of the most prized recipes within most households. Bake-sales, bakeries, and home kitchens alike all have their own version of one of the world’s most popular (and in my opinion, one of the most delicious) baked goods there is to offer. Being into the healthiest stuff I can possibly get, my mission was to create the healthiest cookie I could without it tasting like a healthy cookie.
I think I may have succeeded too! My brothers liked it (the ones who eat junk all day) and my mother said it is almost as good as hers! Now we’re talkin! But I don’t know. How about you decide?
Health Freax Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie
½ c. melted vegan margarine (I used earth balance)
½ c. apple sauce
6 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
¾ c. agave syrup
¼ c. brown sugar
1 tbsp. Ener-g egg replacer (or arrowroot powder)
1 tsp. baking soda
2 c. whole wheat flower
¼ c. flax meal
¼ c. wheat bran
1 ¼ c. chocolate chips
-Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a baking sheet (I lightly rubbed a little earth balance on it).
-Pour your margarine, apple sauce, peanut butter, agave, sugar, and egg replacer into a bowl. Mix it until it is smooth.
-Fold in the chocolate chips.
-Bake for 5 minutes. The turn the baking pan in the oven 180 degrees and bake for 3 more minutes(or until the edges are a little brown)
-Take them out of the oven and let them sit on the pan for 5 minutes or until the center of the cookies set.
-Transfer them to a cooling rack and let them cool for about another 5 minutes.
These cookies are awesome! I love them! I even brought them into work and a few people who make fun of my veganism loved them! The hardest part about making these cookies is resisting eating the dough or waiting for them to cool. It makes about 36 tbsp. cookies but I make mine a bit bigger so I got about 24. If you are able to resist eating them all at once, they last about a week in the fridge or two weeks in the freezer.
I am kind of new to cookie making but i am glad they turned out so good! Hope you like them!
