What are we to do? Take matters into our own hands and do something about it. Nothing hurts processed food companies more than losing money and the best way to show them we are serious about them being held accountable for what goes into our food is to STOP BUYING it! The convenience they offer right now is costing us all dearly in the long run!
Now, I'll get off of my soap box and bake us all a batch of these super delicious cookies! It's hard to be upset at me with a mouthful of moist and chocolatey cookie - that is my evil plan. ;)
Plant Based Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 c vegetable oil
1/2 c mashed bananas
1/2 c sugar
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour*
3/4 c oat flour*
1 t baking soda
3/4 c chocolate chips or chunks
1/2 c chopped nuts, optional
What To Do With It:
Mix oil, bananas, sugar, salt, and cinnamon together in a pan and heat over low heat for a few minutes while whisking together. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely or your chocolate chips will melt and the cookies will look.....interesting!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine flours and baking soda. Mix in banana mixture. Add in chocolate and nuts (if using).
Bake 15 minutes. Allow to cool on the pan for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
*You could also make these using all purpose flour instead of the wheat or oat, or both.
