Vegan MoFo: C is Cookie

This has been a busy weekend with so many great vegan events happening: Spork Foods class, LA Vegan Beer Fest and Healthy Taste of LA.  Boy do I have a lot packed into this weekend but it's been great so far and this only happens every once in awhile so I'm taking advantage of it.  I'll post about some of the events in the future... oooo something to look forward to blurry pictures and all.

Sometimes I feel as if the cookie monster lives in my house.   Chocolate chip cookies are always a great go to treat and a favorite of the cookie monsters,  so off I went looking for a recipe.  I found one from a class I took with Jenny and Heather of Spork Foods.  The cookies were a big hit in class and I hoped when I made them they would  live up to the memory.

Spooned out and ready for the oven
These cookies have a little bit of almond extract in them which gives them a nice unique flavor.  The recipe calls for half whole wheat pastry flour and half unbleached flour.

Fresh out of the oven. Nice melty chocolatey cookies

Ohhh so good.  Lives up to the memory of class.  Cookie would be singing his song.  Puts a smile on my face while I eat a few cookies.... I even join him for a line or two of the song.  Cookie cookie cookie starts with C.

Ready to eat

The only thing better would have been if I had enough time to make the almond milk myself.

A little almond milk... mmmm

What are you favorite cookies?  Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!


  1. Those look great, chocolate chip cookies are my absolute favourites.

  2. My favourite cookies (at the moment!) are just plain old peanut butter cookies.
    I'm still searching for best prices on dairy-free chocolate but as soon as I find a good deal you can bet I'll be making chocolate chip cookies, we have a Monster (well, two if I'm honest and include my daughter! ;)) in this house who loves chocolate chip cookies. :D

  3. ...mmmmmm.... cookies....

    I'll trade you my orange-scented quinoa for your cookies!

  4. Peanut butter cookies are my old stand-by cookie, but I just made a whole wheat shortbread (with a choc coating!) that is starting to pull a close 2nd. I'm always up for veganizing a Martha Stewart cookie, those are good inspiration.
