Belated Bloggiversary with Vegan Chocalate Chip Cookies
I started this blog six years ago on Gudhi Padava with the hope that I will write down few things I know. There was and still is no specific format or agenda on my mind when I write. I do not cook for the blog nor I cook because I want to share something. Quick and simple homely meals are my favorites. I try out nce new recipes from various blogs or from books. I do spend more time in kitchen during weekends and that is when I experiment more with new things.
My cousin and his family visited me last month for few days. I was meeting him after 5+ years.They were planning to visit national parks and such during their visit. I decided to take this opportunity to make chocolate chip cookies for my nephew. I have bookmarked so many recipes and got very confused with what should I make. Then I looked into my pantry and decided to go with the recipe from Hell Yeah It's Vegan as I had everything needed for these cookies. It turned out to be really good. I made half batch chewy and half batch crunchy. I liked them so much that I will make them again.
Based on a recipe from Hell Yeah It's Vegan!
2 cups All Purpose Flour (I used unbleached)
1 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Agave Syrup
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
6 oz Applesauce
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
Pinch of Ground Nutmeg
1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Chopped Walnuts
Mix all purpose flour, nutmeg, salt and baking soda. Sift couple of times to combine and set aside.
Mix brown sugar, oil and agave syrup together in a mixing bowl. Beat thoroughly, preferably with hand mixer until smooth.
Add apple sauce and vanilla and beat for another 3-4 minutes.
Add flour mixture into the wet mixture and mix well.
Add chopped walnuts and chocolate chips. Fold in nicely.
Preheat oven at 350 F.
Make 1" balls and keep them 1-1.5" apart on greased sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes.
Cool on cookie rack once once.
- Bake for 10 minutes if you like crunchy cookies like me.
- I had only 1 cup chocolate chip cookies to I added walnuts, you can always make them only with chocolate chips.
