2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Earth Balance (or other margarine), softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup Brown sugar
Egg replacer for 2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup rolled oats
1/4-1/2 cup apple sauce
Any two of the following(you could do more than 2, we just always do 2)
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips(Optional)
2/3 cup chopped pecans(Optional)
2/3 cup shredded coconut
2/3 cup golden raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease baking sheets. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream vegan margarine(Earth balance is my favorite) & sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg replacer gradually, then stir in vanilla & almond extracts and coconut.
Gradually stir in the already-mixed dry ingredients. Stir in rolled oats, chocolate chips, and pecans. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the greased baking sheets.
Bake for 10-15 minutes(I found that 12 was perfect for how we our cookies, 15 makes them pretty crunchy). Allow cookies to cool 5 minutes before removing from baking sheets.
Serves: 5 dozen cookies
I hope you enjoy them, I know we do!
