"My favorite vegan cookie - while other kinds I have tried have turned out flat and unappetizing-looking, these seem to look and taste great every time."
Serving Size: 1 (24 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 24
"Added a small banana, substituted 1/2 cup agave nectar (about) 1/4 cup of brown sugar for the Sugar, turned down the temp a little bit (to 400) - and these were ah.ma.zing!!!!"
"I have been making these cookies for years now. They are so crazy good. I bring them to parties and I get half a dozen requests for the recipe. No one knows they're vegan and no one needs too. They are delicious - period. One thing I'll add is that I make a healthy version for my kids that is equally popular (with them and others). I halve the sugar (always brown here!), I put 1/2 cup choc chips and 1/2 cup raisins, 1/2 cup pecans and then whatever else - chia seeds, sunflower seeds, flax, etc. They are so chock full of good stuff and they taste like a treat. My four year old - very picky eater - would never stop eating them if I didn't intervene. She cries when I stop her at three. So glad I came across this recipe. I really can't say enough. Make them. Eat them. Serve them. So good."
"I wanted to love these based on all the reviews, but they were just okay. I used a small banana and substituted with agave for some of the sugar. The consistency was like that of a muffin with a slightly crusty exterior. Won't bake again in a hurry, but still edible."
"These cookies are amazing. The only reason I gave them 4 stars is because in both batched we've made, we have had to add at least another 1/4 cup of milk. Other than that, these are PERFECT. They are the first cookies my husband has made, and he's going to make his third batch today to take to work. So good!"
"Absolutely delish. I have made these time and time again and will continue to do so. Thank you so much for posting the recipe."
"Oh, YUM. Thank you very much.. I will keep this recipe forever. I cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup, and it left the cookies perfectly sweet. You rock!!"
"I followed the recipe almost exactly (used 2/3 c sugar) using peanut butter. The cookies came out good, but I did not find them as excellent as the other reviewers. They are dense. Also I would recommend flattened the batter before cooking, and maybe reducing the temp to 400. I also think given the peanut butter, the salt is not needed. Decent recipe, I just didn't "love" as much as others"
"These biscuits are devine... really. I reduced the sugar to 3/4 and that was very sweet so next time I'll be going down to 1/2-1/3 cup. I used peanut butter and walnuts and we loved them. They are soooo quick to put together. I also used wholemeal spelt flour. I made 14 bisuits (65grams each) and cooked them on a slightly lower temp for 13 minutes. If anyone is interested when made into 14 biscuits they are 7 WW points each. I will also try making them with sultanas instead of chocolate and making them slightly smaller. Thank you very much for posting"
"I have never baked anything vegan before, so I was worried they wouldn't turn out... but I was very pleasantly surprised! The only thing I found difficult was the cooking time... I couldn't really tell if they were done after the 10 minutes, so I left them in for a few more, then put them on aluminum foil to cool (and finish cooking). My family isn't vegan but my boss is, and I wanted to bring some cookies in for a work meeting, but I'm not sure if they will make it to tomorrow - my family loves them!"
"Such an easy recipe - I just throw everything in the Cuisinart and go. I have made all kinds of flour and nut butter substitutions - and even done an oatmeal raisin version - and I have to say - these cookies are the most delicious, idiot-proof, vegan cookies I have ever tasted. Thanks Nicole_85 for sharing these:)"
"Had a hard time NOT eating the batter, it was so good! Leave yourself lots of room between cookies, and don't flatten them out at all because they really spread. I made that mistake with the first tray...they were super thin and fragile. But did it right the second time and they worked perfectly. Used peanut buttter and half whole wheat. Love how quick these were to make - thanks!"
"All my yoga friends love them.They taste better with the center a bit soft. Thanks for the lovely recipe"
"Amazing! I changed only a couple things.....used Bob's Red Mill gluten free baking flour, brown sugar instead of white. No chocolate chips. Kept everything else and these turned out phenominal! I love that they are vegan AND gluten free all while being sooo very yummy. I lowered the cooking time to roughly 6min and they are pure perfection! Thanks so much for the recipe xo"
"these were really good. I did make a few substitutions.. so not sure how they compare to the original recipe.. but for food allergy reasons I had to change up a bit. Instead of nut butter, I used butter.. I know they aren't vegan now, but we aren't avoiding dairy.. just eggs and nuts. I lowered the sugar to just over 1/2 cup... used 3/4 c whole wheat flour and 1/4 c flax meal..and used cow's milk. I also chopped up a bit of dark chocolate to use in place of chocolate chips. I had to fight the urge to lower the oven temp, but kept it at 425... so glad I did! They turned out really good. Very delicate, and not exactly like a "regular" chocolate chip cookie.. but a good, healthier substitute. Thanks for posting!"
"These are incredible. I may cut the sugar back a bit next time, they're not too sweet for my tastes but they'll still be good, and a bit healthier, with less sugar. I also left out the nuts as I didn't have any. Thanks so much for this awesome recipe!"
"These turned out great! I used Spelt flour & Rapadura in place of the sugar. I'm not vegan, so I used butter instead of canola oil & raw cow's milk in place of soy milk. Doubled the recipe and otherwise made as stated. Turned out nicely, although I do think I will cut down on the Rapadura next time as they were a bit sweeter than they needed to be."
"My daughter is allergic to dairy & tree nuts, so I was thrilled to find this recipe because they turned out so yummy and she can eat them (I left the nuts out). I love the whole wheat flour and oats too - makes me feel like they're somewhat healthy. Thank you!"
"Great! I used all purpose flour (what I had on hand) and 1 cup of raisins in place of the choc chips & nuts. I baked them at 200 deg centigrade for 10 - 12 min. 10 was perfect. Got tons of compliments, and a batch was devoured at a potluck today. Will be making again. Thanks!"
"Just finished a batch of these cookies, and they came out perfect! Thank you so much for this great recipe. I used skippy peanut butter and almonds. Yummy =]] I used a little less sugar though. I'm gonna try this recipe with some spices like cinnamon and ginger for Christmas. Thanks again!! 5*"
