We made cookies yesterday.  They turned out pretty great, if I do say so myself.  And the best thing is, they are vegan, whole wheat, and full of real chocolate.  Here's the recipe-I think I put up a similar one sometime but it bears repeating since I think it is the perfect cookie recipe.

1/4 c. oil
1/2 c. brown sugar
1Tb flax seed meal with 3Tb water, mixed and let sit for two minutes
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c wheat flour (or spelt flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
chocolate chips or crushed chocolate bar
cherry craisins

I had some crazy good fair trade chocolate that I crushed and added, it made it so smooshy and gooey and got everywhere but it tastes so good!  Even Brendan said the cookies were really good, and he's a hard one to please if it's not a normal recipe...

Ingrid liked them too.  But she likes everything.

These sound really good! Any suggestions as to what to do if I don't have any flax seed meal?

Oh, the flax is just an egg replacer. I'm sure if you used one egg it would be the same.

Cool - thanks!
