Vegan Chocolate Chip Cherry Cookies

I found this recipe on RecipeZaar.

While I don't follow a vegan lifestyle, there are some great recipes out there that I have tried and love.
We have some vegans/vegetarians in our department at work, so I thought I would bring a treat that everyone could enjoy. These are so good. I mean really good. I used unsweetened applesauce and the recipe was fine. These are wonderful treats!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cherry Cookies
1/3 cup oil
1 cup
brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup
1/2 teaspoon
baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
1 cup
all-purpose flour, unbleached
1/2 teaspoon
baking soda
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup
dried cherries
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2.Beat the oil, brown sugar, applesauce and baking powder together until smooth.
3.Sift the flour and baking soda into a large bowl. Add the oats, salt, chocolate chips, and cherries, stirring together. Add the wet ingredients and stir (careful not to overmix).
4.Drop rounded tablespoonfuls onto sheets lined with parchment paper, or nonstick pans. Leave 2 inches between each one so they have room to spread out.
5.Bake for 10-12 minutes on the center rack of the oven. Let stand 2 minutes after you take them off, then slide the cookies onto a wire rack to cool completely.


  1. They look delicious. I, too, have had wonderful luck with some of the vegan recipes. I wonder how these cookies would taste made with whole wheat pastry flour.

  2. Hey....these dooooo look good! Yum. I also like vegan recipes...been awhile though since I have made any vegan baking. Mary is right..they often are super delicious.

  3. These look great! We have quite a few students who are vegan in our department - I am going to make these cookies tonight to take to work tomorrow as a special treat for these students! Thanks Linda!

  4. Good to see vegan recipes. We have too much meat in our diet so it's good to be able to enjoy flavorful foods without all the animal products. These look very good. Ole Sweetie-Pi is a great fan of chocolate chip and cherries!

  5. Linda, this is a KEEPER recipe. I love it. I used dark chocolate chunks and dried cherries. Yummy!

  6. these do look good, is the chocolate vegan?, Rebecca and so sweet of you making cookies that everyone can enjoy

  7. Hello Linda!
    I hope things are going well for you! Thanks for your sweet comment the other day when I was having my breakdown. You are such a wonderful blogging friend!

    Your cookies look absolutely delicious! Maybe I can find some time to make some this week. My kids would be THRILLED!

    Have a super weekend!


  8. This is a wonderful recipe. I love vegan recipes.
