Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies

What you need: 

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup canola oil
1/4 cup applesauce (or 1 egg substitute)
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups crushed peppermint candy (I use peppermint sticks)
1 1/2 cups vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix sugar, brown sugar, oil, and egg replacer in a large bowl.
2. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in another bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet. Add chocolate chips and crushed peppermint.
3. Drop on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in the oven for about 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on these because sometimes the peppermint will seep and burn on the pan.
I recommend not using any type of vegetable shortening for these cookies. They will turn out dull and flat.

okay, i'm gonna take a shot at adding peppermint extract to this. i guess i'll start with 1/2 tsp and taste test it till it works. i'll let you know how it works out since i'll be bringing them to a BBQ/Potluck


secondbase; YES you can sub. mint flavoring/extract for the candies and use any non-refined sweeteners Most refined sugars use bone char to whiten them, some don't but the others are more healthful and who needs coloring anyway? YUM I LUV mint & chocolate-I use carob to avoid caffeine.


I made these the other night and they turned out to be the best vegan cookies I have ever made. I am allergic to wheat so I used spelt but would like to try them with other flours like rice next time. I also used the applesauce and the egg replacer and they tasted lovely!


so, are they any peppermint candy sticks that don't contain unrefined sugar? i'd love to try this recipe! or is there a way to use peppermint extract in place of the peppermint candies?


Very tasty and addictive, a great holiday treat!
