This recipe is not only scrumptious, it is easy and vegan friendly-so everyone should give it a whirl.
Chocolate chip, walnut and oatmeal cookies:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a few cookie sheets.
In a small bowl mix:
1 1/2 c flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
If you're a lucky duck, mix the following ingredients in your KitchenAid; if you don't own one, I'm sure your arm will be tired-but proceed with dignity..:
3/4 c vegetable oil
2 Tbs milk-I used Soy milk
1/2 c sugar (this is the bare minimum-you can add up to 1 1/3 c)
2 eggs or make egg substitutes like this: Mix 1 Tbs flax seed and 3 Tbs water (makes one egg)
1 1/2 Tbs vanilla extract
2 1/2 c oatmeal
12 oz chocolate chips
2 big handfuls of semi crushed walnuts
Mix all the dry ingredients then add them to the wet, then fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Plop some spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and slide them in the oven. We make big cookies, so they baked for 17 minutes, but depending on the size you may need more or less time. Your best bet is to time them for about 12 minutes and periodically check on them from there.
