Anyway, here I'm going to share with you my new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I think it merits saying that I don't actually even like chocolate chip cookies that much, but I like these. They're that good.
Here it is:
C Y o F C - A p p r o v e d C h o c o l a t e C h i p C o o k i e s
2 cups flour (white)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cinnamon <--the crucial ingredient, in my opinion!!!
1 cup sugar (either the "evaporated cane juice" or "raw turbinado" kind)
2/3 cup olive oil, yes I said olive oil
1/4 cup orange juice or soy milk
2 tsp vanilla extract1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips, but add more if you like!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add the chocolate chips. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar and oil. Add the vanilla and orange juice/soy milk. Form small patties (for larger, flatter cookies) or balls (for smaller, rounder cookies) with your hands and put on a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, then rotate the baking sheet 180 degrees and switch it to the other oven rack. Bake another 4 minutes and then check every 2 minutes. Be careful not to overbake - take the cookies out while they are still soft! They will harden once they cool.

Oh and by the way, I made these for the Bitchcraft Trading Post that I'll be participating in this Sunday. How much will they cost, you ask? Oh, they'll be going for FREE.
That's right. Free. I am going to be baking like a mad woman and bringing the vegan goodies with me to hand out to anyone who stops by my table. My "shop" is called "foodchain," and I make and sell jewelry, re-usable lunchbags, totes, clothing, and more. I make my stuff with only VEGAN materials, so NO fur, feathers, ivory, shell, wool, leather, etc. I also try to use recycled materials as much as possible.
By the way, Bitchcraft Trading Post consists of me and a bunch of other Los Angeles-based artists, artisans, craftsmen/women, and vintage collectors.
Tell your friends and family who live in LA, Glendale, Pasadena, Long Beach, etc. That would be awesome. :)
Once more for good luck: FREE VEGAN BAKED GOODS FOR EVERYONE*!
*While supplies last. So come and get 'em while you can!
