I have been searching for all the tasty vegan cookie recipes I can find, and I recently came across this one on a friend's blog. I made it first thing in the morning. At the beginning, the dough was extremely thin and I was worried the cookies would spread out and stick to each other in the oven. Fortunately, that didn't happen. For some reason, though, mine did turn out darker than my friend's. >.<
Yields 15 to 20
100g cake flour
50mL canola oil
40g brown sugar (packed)
50mL hot water
1tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
50g chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
2. Dissolve the brown sugar in the hot water, set aside and let it
cool. Soak the raisins in (different) water for half an hour.
3. Add canola oil to a big bowl, then add the brown sugar liquid, and then the salt.
4. Sift cake flour and baking powder and add to the mixture from step 2.
5. Mix well, forming a soft dough.
6. Strain the raisins, and add them along with the chocolate chips. Mix well.
7. Use a spoon to scoop the dough onto a baking pan. Bake for 12 mins. Done!
