Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups unbleached flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
cinnamon to taste (opt)
Vegan chocolate or carob chips - put in as many as you like
1 cup raw sugar (turbinado #1, sucanat works too but sucks up a lot of the
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup water
VERY IMPORTANT-make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. It will work
if they're not at room temp but it works MUCH better if they are. Also while
your oven is pre- heating put the cookie sheets you are going to use on top of
the oven so they get preheated as well. Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon (if you choose). Add
chips. Make a well in the center and set aside.
In a medium size bowl mix sugar and oil. Mix it well. Add the vanilla and then
add the water. Mix it well. Add the wet to the well in the dry. Mix it well but
be careful not to overwork it. Add more chips if you need to. Spoon onto
ungreased cookie sheets. Put them in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes and then flip
and rotate the sheets. (top to bottom, and 180 degree rotation) Bake another 4
minutes and check them.
The cookies are done when they seem a little bit softer then you want them to
be. They will harden up some as they cool. I usually go in two minute increments
from here until they get to where I like them.
Take them out when they are done and move them to wire cooling racks. If they
split or come apart when you try to remove them let them sit on the pan for 2
minutes before transferring them to the racks. Makes almost 2 doz
