Happy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

What you need: 

2 cups unbleached flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
cinnamon, to taste, optional
handful vegan chocolate or carob chips
1 cup raw sugar (turbinado; sucanat works too, but sucks up a lot of the moisture)
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup water

What you do: 

1. 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 degrees F.
2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir in chips. Make a well in the center and set aside. In a medium size bowl, add together sugar and oil; mix well.
3. Add the vanilla and then add the water; mix 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.
4. 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 2 minute increments from here until they get to where I like them.
5. 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.
These cookies have come a long way, lots of time and tasting spent on getting them to where they are now. Vegans and non vegans love them. In the words of my 6 year old son:Mom, you're the greatest because you know how to make the best cookies. Enjoy and let me know if you have questions. Sweet travels.

I have recently started following a low-fat, vegan diet, and these turned out great for me! I substituted unsweetened applesauce for half the oil (1/4 cup applesauce, 1/4 cup canola oil) and did one cup unbleached flour and one cup whole wheat pastry flour. I also added a little less sugar and a little more vanilla. My husband is gonna be so excited! He's been bugging me to make chocolate chip cookies for a while now!

These cookies were too sticky and they tasted like sugar cookies, but they tasted pretty good if they were a sugar cookie.

I dont know if I did something wrong but after i finished the whole batter was stuck to my hands. Also, they tasted more like sugar cookies with chocolate in them. They were fairly good-tasting when finiished though, except they didnt taste like choclate chip cookies.

These are amazing! I even rolled them into little balls and put them in the freezer to put in/on icecream, smoothies or to just munch on for a little frozen treat of the great cookie dough taste. Thank you!

I loved these cookies - thank you so much!! I'm going to throw some coconut into the next batch. However, I do agree that it got a bit crumbly towards the end of the batch and I had to add a wee bit more water - molasses is a great idea veggievulture, I might try that next time too!
