SO HOW'D IT GO?

These are really wonderful.  I cut the margarine down by half and added applesauce to make up the difference.  I didn't have any walnuts so I just left them out and they still turned out great!  These will probably become my standard cookie.  :)

These really are the best...if you are reading and trying to decide whether to make them, try it!

This time I used hazelnuts instead of walnuts, i chopped them pretty fine in a mini food prep.  I also always cut the butter down to 3/4 and replace the 1/4 with applesauce, which is necessary to keep the right moisture level (otherwise need to replace with about 1/4 soy or rice milk).  I also used a full 1/2 cup of oats and in between 1/4 and 1/2 cup of coconut.

I found that baking at 350 for 9 minutes was about right for me, though my oven is smaller than normal.  I do turn the tray, but again that has more to do with my oven and fears of burning.  I also bake these on parchment paper, i like the way that works for these and for the easy cleanup.

thanks, jenny!

Don't know what went wrong, but these are pancakes.
Totally flat and hard, not at all like the picture.
I used Earth Balance, what did you use to make them work?
Definately won't make these again!

These were really the best cookies I have ever had; however, thet tasted much better the second and third day. I used spelt flour, only 1/2 stick of butter and 1/4 of milk to make the dough stick together. They weren't as greasy as the other people mentioned. They were a little dry though. Next time I will probably use a little of applesauce too. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. Will definitely make again.

These are super tasty cookies!  I've made them a few times, and they're always a hit.  I reduce the margarine to 3/4 cup and sub in 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce.  I use 1/2 cup each of the coconut, oats, and nuts.  I usually prefer pecans to walnuts.  This last time, I baked these at 350 F for 10-11 minutes, and I think I prefer that instead of 375 F.  The bottoms didn't get brown so quickly, and they seemed to turn out even better.  Definitely give these a try--you won't be disappointed!  (By the way, I don't bother with turning the tray--no need.)

Wow that sounds horribly fattening lol. I would hate to see the calorie count on 1 cookie  ;)

;D I've been making these cookies for two years now, and they are the most amazing cookies in the entire universe! I've sent these cookies to tons of friends, and everyone in my family claims they are the best cookies they've ever had, and they won't try any other vegan food that I make! Try this recipe, you won't be disappointed, and make it for all of your non-vegan friends so they can sample how yummy vegan sweets are!

:) :o :D These are absolutely the best cookies I've ever made!  And that's saying something.  I can't cook.  My boyfriend loves loves loves these and takes a huge batch to work every fortnight to share with his workmates (who also love them of course).

Thankyou :) to Jenny.
