As you may have figured out from my previous post, I'm not in the best of moods today. So I'm going to do some things for me today that I normally don't do. I wouldn't mind company, but I don't know of anyone who wants to join me.
1. Go to the movies by myself.
2. Go on a long run...again by myself.
3. And make vegan cookies.
I believe I've posted a recipe for vegan cookies in the past, but today I'm going to expand on it. You know those "monster cookies" that have everything in them - chocolate chips, M&M's, peanut butter, etc? Well these will be my monster cookies - they include nuts, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips (not technically vegan, but I'll live) and oats. I also have a recipe for almond cookies that I'd like to try, but I haven't yet. Maybe you can try that and let me know how it is.
Vegan (ish) Monster Cookies
1/3 cup all purpose GF flour
1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup GF oats
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup chocolate & butterscotch chips
1/4 cup chopped nuts
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp + 1 tsp coconut oil
3 tbsp almond milk
Preheat oven to 375. Mix all dry ingredients together. Then stir in wet ingredients. Form into balls and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet 6-7 minutes. They will still be a little underdone when they come out. The will finish baking as they cool.
1/2 cup margarine or coconut oil
6 Tbsp maple sugar or light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup almond meal
1 cup oat flour
Preheat over to 300 F. Grease cookie sheet; set aside. With a hand mixer blend butter, sugar and vanilla extract until creamy. Add flour and almond meal and mix until the dough sticks together.
Form into 1 1/2 inch balls. Place on the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool completely before serving. Makes 2 dozen cookies.
