Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan and Whole-Grain)


Well, I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is that this is a chocolate cookie that is whole-grain, vegan, and still manages to be as chewy and delicious as the best chocolate chip cookies you've eaten.

The bad news is that this is a chocolate cookie that is whole-grain, vegan, and still manages to be as chewy and delicious as the best chocolate chip cookies you've eaten.

What this means for you is that you will want to eat ALL OF THE COOKIES because they will fool you into thinking that they're actually healthy. And granted - they are definitely healthier than other chocolate chip cookies. But yeah. Unfortunately, they're not actually all that healthy (no matter what I tell myself as I pop yet another one into my mouth).

But they are that delicious. I wasn't sure what to expect with these, as it was the first recipe I'd tried from the wonderful recipe archive Yum Universe. And me = blown away. Also, my friends = blown away. These are fabulous little treats!



I didn't really adapt the original recipe much at all. The only thing I did was use organic granulated cane sugar because I didn't have sucanat on hand. I also added more vanilla extract than what was called for because, well, I seem to always do that. If you're making these for someone with a soy allergy, double check all ingredients, especially the chocolate chips (which often have soy lecithin in them). Otherwise, just do what the nice lady tells you and you will not be sorry.
