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.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This is a fabulous recipe! I used the peppermint oil and I have to say I used a bit to much! But these are fantastic cookies! The texture and taste is wonderful, just a little less peppermint oil next time. (my fault!) I have to note, that this recipe makes a perfect basic vegan cookie recipe where chocolate chips and the like can be added and have a beautiful result! Thank you for posting! ;)b

was just wondering...could i just use one full cup of regular sugar in this recipe? i just don't have any brown sugar and don't often use it...hhmm...maybe i'll just go pick some up though because these sound great. anyway, if i needed to would i just be able to make up from the brown sugar with plain sugar? thanks.

You can sub regular and brown sugar cup for cup in pretty much any cookie recipe. I do this pretty often both ways and have yet to run into any problems. I'd say go for it!

Delicious! I add a little peppermint extract and a little bit more applesauce and I had no problem with the dough being crumbly.

I cut the recipe in half because I was almost out of peppermint extract, so I used what I had (1/2 tsp.) I also used half whole wheat flour and half white, and added extra applesauce to make up for the slightly crumbly dough. I also had to bake them almost 20 minutes, but I think I overdid it a little... they just didn't look done!  :P These are awesome cookies! I love peppermint and chocolate together.  ;)b

How come some of these cookies look like they've exploded to smithereens!? Is that some kind of chemical peppermint-chocolate reaction!? 
:-D

These are so super yummy!! I didn't have canola oil, so I used safflower oil.  I put 10 candy canes in my vitamix, and it came out perfect consistency. I also did 1/3 C of oil, and the rest applesauce.  My dough was not dry at all, I didn't need to add anything.  They did come out a little gooey, and somewhat flat. .  but they taste AMAZING!!!
Thanks for sharing this sinfully delish recipe!!
