Jon's Killer Vegan Whole Wheat
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Walnut Cookies
- 2 Tablespoons flax seed freshly ground
- 1 Tablespoon cornstarch (or another binding agent
made with potato and tapioca starch like EnerG Egg Replacer)
- 1 Tablespoon canola oil
- 4 Tablespoons boiling water
- 3 Tablespoons canola oil
- cup agave nectar or maple syrup
- cup raw sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- cup soy/almond milk
Distribute the small amounts evenly in the larger.
- 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (soft white spring not hard red winter)
If you have your own mill note that
1 cups whole kernels will yield ~3 cups finely ground flour.
- teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoons baking powder
- teaspoon salt
Mix binding with wet and mix in 1 cup of the dry.
Then add this mixture to the rest of the dry along with:
Gently fold all together. Do not overmix
as this will develop the gluten in the flour
and make the consistency of the cookie tougher.
- 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
Pre–heat the oven to 375°.
Use parchment paper on the cookie sheets.
Using two large spoons place dough by heaping spoonfuls
onto cookie sheet.
Make sure that you leave enough room between for them to spread out.
This recipe makes 24–30 in all.
Bake for 12–14 minutes until golden brown.
Aim for a compromise between charred on bottom and raw in the middle.
Of course, you can't see the middle or the bottom so you'll
have to use the golden–brown–ness gauge. You can also simply experiment
to see what works for your oven, your cookie sheet, your preferred size of
cookie, and your desired degree of crispiness.
Let cool before removing from the parchment paper.
Parchment paper can be reused for the next batch.
Instead of the oatmeal, walnut, chocolate chips you can add:
- 2 C oats, C raisins
- 1 C peanut butter
