Photo and recipe by freakapotimus @ flickr


Ingredients


1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup unrefined sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon fine-grained sea salt
1/2 cup soy margarine
1/2 cup silken tofu OR 2 eggs (3 eggs for a cakey texture)
1 teaspoon almond OR vanilla extract


Optional: try adding 1 cup nuts to the dry ingredients!



Preheat oven to 350 F.

Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment.

In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
Blend margarine, tofu (or egg), almond (or vanilla) extract.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well.
Drop cookie dough onto sheet using a tablespoon.


Bake 15-20 minutes, or until cookie bottoms begin to brown.
Briefly cool on a cooling rack--they are tasty warm!



Note from freakapotimus @ flickr: For the batch I made yesterday, I used the equivalant of two eggs instead of the three called for, and they came out a bit less cakey but still chewey and moist. Although I feel bad I cheated on the vegan-ness by using Swiss-made dairy chocolate chips.
This was my first time making this recipe, and the cookies turned out so yummy delicious! It's an easy-to-follow recipe that can, without any trouble, be vegan--I find it's tastier with the tofu!
