1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
3 tablespoon water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup bran flakes
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup vegan margarine, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
1, Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Warm your cookies sheets on top of the oven. Spray with nonstick spray. In a small bowl, combine ground flaxseed with water and let sit or microwave for 15 seconds.
2, Place the following ingredients in the bowl of a food processor: flour, oats, bran flakes, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Blend until the bran flakes and oats are broken up to your desired consistency. I like mine to be blended well but with some texture so that my cookies have a nice chewy texture.
3. Add the applesauce, margarine, and vanilla extract. Mix with a spatula. Add the chocolate chips and mix thoroughly.
4. Drop by the tablespoonful onto the cookie sheets. It doesn't seems like much but the cookies puff up. They aren't round cookies but are more like cookie jumbles. Space them about 1 inch apart.
Bake for about 10 minutes and cool on wire racks.
