A Double Batch
I've been looking for a vegan chocolate cookie recipe that uses oil (not margarine! you cannot convince me that something chemically cooked up like that is good for me! anyway...) for a while. Something like New Moon Kitchen's (Yay for local bakeries!) MoMints, because I have been known to eat an entire bag of those...you know, maybe...once in a while....
And then I saw this recipe and figured close enough, I'll just take the plunge and sub oil for the margarine (I really needed chocolate cookies). Not having prunes, I used the first recipe (and had to use cow's milk yogurt instead of soy, and apple cider vinegar instead of balsamic...it's like that a lot in our kitchen - whatever works!) Mine didn't stay risen, and they're not that pretty, but...oh...goodness...gracious.....groan....like little chocolately circles of heaven. Crispy giving way to chewy...deep chocolate flavour.......mmmmmmmm
The plate at the back? That's for the broken ones - 'cause they don't count ;-)
