Recipe by joop
I have a recipe in my box so old and used it's hard to read so I've decided to copy it here for all eternity. Originally a non-vegan recipe, I've modified it over the years to match my healthier lifestyle. If you don't have turbinado sugar, brown sugar will do. And yes, all purpose flour *will* work, but whole wheat pastry flour is better for you. If you do decide to use AP flour, omit the soy or almond milk. I'm embarrassed to say that I've never actually counted the cookies this recipe makes as the size I make depends on my need for chocolate on a given day. I'll guess it's 3 dozen, YMMV. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does.
- 2 tablespoons bob's red mill egg substitute
- 6 tablespoons water
- 1⁄2 cup vegan margarine
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- 1 1⁄2 cups turbinado sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1⁄2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1⁄3 cup vanilla soymilk or 1⁄3 cup almond milk
- 12 ounces chocolate chips, to your taste
- 1⁄2 cup chopped pecans (or both) or 1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts (or both)
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat your oven to 350.
- Mix Egg Replacer with water until very smooth and set aside. I love BRM but if you have a different favorite egg substitute, use that.
- Cream the margarine and peanut butter together.
- Add the sugar and egg replacer, add the soda, salt and vanilla.
- When all is smooth, add in the flour. Whole wheat pastry flour is much dryer than normal all purpose flour, so once it's been incorporated, add in 1/3 cup of soy or almond milk a bit at a time until you have a smooth dough.
- Turn in your chocolate and nuts, if desired.
- Bake (preferably on a pizza stone) at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
