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 applesauce
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour, unbleached
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
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.
