Bike-Friendly XXX Vegan Cookies
Our friend Meghan's been busy baking cookies to raise money for a nutso bike tour she's doing for an AIDS services donation. Last time we hung with Meghan, she was building her first road bike and still getting used to riding next to cars. Now she's placing in Wolfpack biker races and riding upwards of 50 miles a day to train for her upcoming mission. We include her super-moist recipe for vegan chocolate death cookies as a gift to you all. Break a leg, Meghan; show those Wolfpack bastards how to bake!
Meghan D's Triple-Chocolate Death
1 cup soymilk (or milk of your choice)
2 1/2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
4 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups Canola oil
4 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cocoa nibs
2 cups vegan chocolate chips
1) Preheat oven to 350° F. Mix the soymilk and flaxseeds together in a blender, pulse and set aside.2) In a mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, oil and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients, except for the nibs and chips.3) Bit by bit, stir the wet ingredients into the dry mixture, both the blender of soy-flax and the bowl of sugary vanilla goo. Add more flour if the batter seems too sticky or runny.4) Mix in the nibs and chips. Form the cookies into pinball-sized shapes on a baking sheet and then smoosh them down so they're more like disks. Place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake ’em 12 minutes.
