Vegan Apple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Day 5 is here already! This countdown is just flying by... today's cookie is a great alternative for anyone with a dairy, egg, or nut sensitivity - because there isn't any of the aforementioned!

⅔ cup    packed brown sugar
½ cup    margarine
1            apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1 tsp      vanilla
1½ cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp     baking soda
¼ tsp     salt
1            bar dark chocolate, or 1 cup carob chips*

If you are unsure about the milk content in the chocolate then stick with carob, which is a chocolate alternative. It is however much sweeter than chocolate so I only used ¾ cup.

I recipe calls for a food processor, but I used a hand blender. In a bowl blend brown sugar, margarine, apple and vanilla until smooth. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt; stir in chocolate.
Drop 1 tbsp 1 inch apart onto parchment lined baking sheets. Bake at 350˚F for 14-16 minutes, until edges are golden and tops firm. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Enjoy with a warm cup of tea!
Another delicious treat! This one comes to us from Canadian Living Magazine, December 2009, pg. 174. To go back and see the other recipes click on the Countdown button to the right, and to learn about some of the other contributors please visit the Bio Page.

  1. Those look great, and I bet they would go excellently with a robust tea blend like 'Irish Breakfast'...I may need these cookies now.


Thanks so much for spending some time with me, if you're feeling up to it please leave me a note. I really enjoy them, and take the time to read every single one! :)
