Awesome Chocolate Cookies

What you need: 

3/4 cup margarine
1 cup unrefined sugar
1 egg replacer (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7678.0)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/3-1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup vegan chips (peanut butter are awesome)

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix margarine and vegan sugar until creamy. Add egg replacer and vanilla.
2. In a separate bowl, blend flour, cocoa, soda, and baking powder. Add dry mixture to wet mixture and mix until everything is well blended.
3. Stir in the chips. Form balls and smash them down a little bit on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes until the tops are no longer gooey.
It's really important to use the purest, most unprocessed, organic ingredients you can find. It makes a huge difference in the way the cookies taste and the way they make you feel. These cookies are truly scrumptious! '

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I found this bookmarked in my recipe box and didn't remember why I had it - then I started making a batch, and realised... this is my go-to cookie recipe! This is the one of the first cookie recipes I made as a vegan, and it has served me well many times since.  ;)b

Mine turned out okay...despite many modifications.

I cut the recipe in half, used banana for egg replacer, used an applesauce/canola oil mixture instead of margarine (since i'm allergic), and didn't have any chocolate chips so I used peanuts and added a little peanut butter, I also ran out of sugar so I used some maple syrup as well. The dough was really very wet because of these modifications, so I added about 3/4 a cup of flour, and about 3 tbsp. more cocoa powder.

I felt like it could've had a little more chocolate flavor (though this is probably due to the lack of chocolate chips!!)

They still turned out very cake-like, and I should've spread them out a bit more.

It was really hard for me to create cookies out of the dough because I couldn't stop eating it. My god that dough is amazing. The cookies were almost as good. The chips really make the cookie, i wouldn't recommend baking these without unless you're a fan of a lighter chocolate taste. I also didn't have margarine, so i threw in 1/2 cup of Parkay ( i know,  gasp!). I used regular white flour instead of pastry flour.  8 minutes and they were perfect. Good recipe.

Hawt damn!  These are delicious.  I made a batch for a poetry section I'm teaching at school (to get them to focus on sensation and describe it without taste/smell words).  Your cookies are going to help expose students to the beauty of poetry ... and they will come back for more  ;)b  Thanks for the recipe.

These were a big hit with the omnis - not something I would make often because of all the sugar and margarine... but they're *great* for feeding to the kind of people who are judging the validity of your entire eating style based on the tastiness of one dish.  I was really impressed with how well they spread!  I've tried them with and without chocolate chips, but I think they're best with chopped pecans.

I left out the chips and rolled the dough into balls which I then rolled in cinnamon sugar.  Deeeelicious! Like chocolate snicker doodles!

i followed the recipe exactly, using ener-g egg replacer, and chocolate chips. they literally vanished in about 5 minutes when i brought them to a pot luck. after people took a bite, i heard things like, "OH MY GOD! heaven." "these are amazing!" etc.

Just made these, used all applesauce and 3/4 cup brown sugar. I also added i tbsp oil just b'cause I thought the batter looked dry. I also added chocolate chips. Made about 60 very small cookies. Very tasty, daughter is eating the batter as I type this. Oh yeah, ran out whole wheat flour so I had to use 1/4 c all purpose-unbleached of course. Yes, they are brownie like, but very soft and very good. I baked them for about 15 minutes b'cause 10 mins didn't seem long enough. Thanks again for the wonderful recipe. oh yeah again, :P dropped by tsp on baking pan
