    Bethlehem's Note:

    I adapted this recipe for one of my students who is Vegan. Surprisingly, they were a huge hit with everyone! Besides the amazing taste, they’re much healthier than most cookies.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/4 cup applesauce
    • 2 tablespoons oil
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 3 -4 tablespoons water
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 cup flour
    • 1/3 cup cocoa
    • 3/4 cup dairy-free semi-sweet chocolate chips (Ghirardelli makes some)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cream applesauce, oil, sugar and 1 T water.
    2. 2
      Mix in remaining 2-3 T of water and beat well.
    3. 3
      In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients.
    4. 4
      Add to applesauce mixture and mix until combined.
    5. 5
      If applicable, add chocolate chips last.
    6. 6
      Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
    7. 7
      Preheat oven 400°F and grease a cookie sheet well.
    8. 8
      Make approximately 24 balls (or you can do drop cookies).
    9. 9
      Bake for approximately 8 minutes—they should be very puffy. Be careful not to over-bake as they will become quite hard when cooled.
    10. 10
      Allow to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet, they will fall considerably due to the lack of egg.

      OH MY GOD! THESE ARE AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know why this recipe doesn't have more reviews!
      I'm a huuuge chocolate-cookie/moist-fudgey-brownie addict! You won't believe that these are vegan! They taste sooo DELICIOUS!

      Here are the few additions I added to the recipe:
      To the *dry mix* I added:
      1 tsp baking power
      2 packs of vanilla pudding mix (I made sure they were vegan)
      1 tsp cinnamon

      To the *wet mix* I added:
      1 tsp vanilla

      I also incorporated a lot of dark chocolate chips! And instead of pressing down the rolled balls into flattened cookie shapes, I left them as balls and baked them that way. When they came out of the oven they were super soft and moist/gooey inside. Once cooled, they hardened. SO DELISH!

      These are so simple yet so addicting!! They only take about 5 minutes to make and not that long to bake. The apple sauce is an amazing egg replacement and all you taste is chocolate :)

      I made an account just to review these, they are delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, and I had no problem with it. The only thing is, they are a little too "gooey" for my preference. I like a little crunch to my cookies..so next time I might try baking for 10 minutes instead. Thank you for the wonderful and easy vegan cookie recipe! Definitely satisfies a chocolate craving. (:
