Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

MMmmmm chocolate cookies. There's something very comforting about a decadent chocolate cookie with a tall glass of milk. I could pretty much go for that right about now considering the rather blustery weather we've been experiencing today. Damp, rainy, and very windy!! Quite a change from the beautifully warm weather that we have had recently. Oh well, best stay in with my cookies and enjoy!

Vegan double chocolate cookies 

 Recipe from lemonpi

1 cup vegetable oil (we put a little less in at 3/4 cup)
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce (we used about 2/3 cup)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup dark chocolate chips

Combine the oil, sugar, apple sauce, cocoa powder, salt and vanilla in a bowl. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. The cookie dough will be quite wet at this stage. Chill it for about 15 mins or long enough for the dough to be scooped and rolled into balls.
Preheat the oven to 160′C (325F). Scoop walnut sized portions of cookie dough, roll each into a ball and arrange them on lined baking trays, leaving an inch of space between each ball of dough to allow for spreading. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cookies feel soft but not raw in the middle. Once cool, they will be crisp on the edges and slightly chewy in the center. Just the way chocolate cookies should be.
