Cakey soft-agave sweetened chocolate chip cookies

What you need: 

Egg replacer:
2 tablespoons fresh ground flax seed
3 tablespoons nondairy milk Dry Ingredients:
1 cup + 2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt Wet Ingredients:
1/4 cup vegan butter (I use Earth Balance)
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup + 1/8 cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon molasses
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup-1 cup chocolate chips (I use grain sweetened)

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet. Mix together egg replacer in a small cup or bowl. In a medium-large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
2. In a small-medium bowl, mix together the wet ingredients with a fork or mixer. There will be lumps of vegan butter in your wet mix, and that's good.
3. Add the egg replacer to the wet ingredients; mix. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
4. Add the chocolate chips to your mix and fold them in. Spoon the cookies with a large spoon onto prepared cookie sheet. I got 9 cookies out of this, but I like big cookies.
5. For bigger cookies, bake for 8 minutes, switch the pan around in the oven and cook for 5 more minutes. Bake a total of 8-12 minutes for smaller cookies. They are done when you touch the middle and it is firm; not sinking. They will firm up a little when they cool. Enjoy!

These came out really good! I also subbed the apple sauce w/ 1/2 a  banana, tasted a little banana-y but IMO that's a good thing :) They were very cakey, which was what I was looking for. I served it with soy-creamy vanilla "ice cream" and some home made caramel sauce, delicious.  Thank you for posting!! Smile


Not bad! I didn't have any sugar on hand ( just agave and maple syrup ) so I went ahead and gave these a go. You have to be in the mood for a cakey cookie but I pretty much always am :) I didn't have any applesauce so I subbed it with a Banana and the molasses with some organic maple syrup. Oh and I added some sweetened coconut just to use it up :) Will make again!
