This recipe is so simple and so good. Be careful not to overcook them or they will become a little granola-y. You want them to be gooey. These are even pretty healthy! I added up the nutrition info for you (yes, be thankful) so you can eat them without guilt. Here it is:

On a side note, I’ve decided that my favorite thing about making vegan baked goods is I can eat all the cookie dough I want without having to worry about the raw eggs. It’s fabulous! I probably ate about 5 cookies worth of dough. These cookies are just as good pre-baked as they are post-baked.

Try them out and tell my what you think. 🙂
