I will start...

I'm not a vegan (I'm a vegetarian) but I think it'd be fun to try making vegan cookies -- I've had some before, and they're actually very tasty!  smile

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 cup vegan granulated sweetener
1 cup applesauce
1 1/2 t Ener-G egg replacer, dissolved in 2 T water
1 1/2 T light vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 to 3/4 cup raisins (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and sweetener in a mixing bowl and stir together. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the applesauce, dissolved egg replacer, and oil. Stir together until the wet and dry ingredients are thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and raisins, if desired. Drop the batter onto lightly oiled baking sheets in slightly rounded tablespoonfuls. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the bottoms are just lightly browned. Let stand for a minute or two, & then carefully remove with a spatula to plates to cool. Makes 3 dozen.
