Yummy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

The dough was amazing, even the omni child loved it haha! These are very good. Just do not leave on pan to long afterremoving from oven. They harden quickly. These taste like Pillsbury cookies!

You will need:

-1/2 cup of vegetable shorting or vegan butter (I used shortening)

-1/2  cup packed brown sugar

-3 heaping tablespoons of white sugar

-3 tablespoons of vanilla extract

-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

-1 cup of vegan friendly semi sweet chocolate chips

-1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

-1-1 1/4 cups of flour

-3 and 1/2 Tablespoon of chickpea brine (juice from the can)

How to prepare:

Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Mix butter or shortening  with sugars with electric mixer. Add everything in EXCEPT the flour and chocolate chips.

Mix well then add flour a little at a time. Once mixed fold in chocolate chips. Make small balls and place on baking sheet.  Bake for 10-13 minutes. Remove and let cool on pan for 1-2 minutes and place in a sealed container . These can harden quickly so keep an eye on them ! ENJOY !!



Tonight I had a hankering for something sweet. I stared at the lonely bananas in our fruit bowl then to our new deep fryer. And even though we had just made onion rings in the fryer, these bananas came out perfect and tasty.  A perfect sweet treat !

You will need:

-2 cups of flour

-1 tablespoon of rice flour(We grinded up jasmine rice)

-4 tablespoons sugar

-splash of vanilla

-salt to taste

-1 teaspoon if cinnamon

-1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

-3/4 cup water

How to prepare:

In a medium bowl mix all dry ingredients.Add water and vanilla. Stir until a thick consistency is formed. The batter should kinda stick to the back of your spoon!

Heat your deep fryer. If you don’t have a deep fryer heat a deep pan with about half an inch or so of cooking oil. Slice bananas how you like. Big or small. We sliced it into rounds.  Dunk in the batter and place in the deep fryer until golden brown.

Serve immediately and sprinkle sugar or icing sugar! I put a little dollop of the whipped cream recipe we posted earlier today. It was good but these were best with just a simple sprinkle of sugar !

Enjoy these and trust me ! So good and so easy!
