crispy, chewy, chocolate chip cookies


I've tried millions of chocolate chip cookie recipes, but this is the one. Crispy, chewy, practically a kg of sugar, it's enough to make a pre menstrual woman drop the knife. I eat these for breakfast when I'm pmsing and lordy does it save the human race from krakatoa. Recipe straight from "In the Garden of Vegan".

3/4 cup of flour
1/2 cup of dry sweetener
2 cups of rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup of tofu or 1/2 banana
1/3 cup of olive oil
1/2 maple syrup
1 tbsp of vanilla extract
1 - 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (vegan of course)

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

2. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix.

3. In a food processor (or blender or with a stick blender) whizz all the wet ingredients and mix into the dry ingredients.

4. Spoon a heaped tablespoon of mixture onto a baking sheet and press flat. Bake for about 12-15 minutes until starting to brown. The cookies are hard to handle straight out of the oven so you have to wait a little bit for them to firm up before you can remove them from the cookie sheet. Makes about 14 cookies.
