Vegan Coconut Cookies

February 9, 2010 by Keri

Okay, so these vegan cookies aren’t exactly (at all) healthy, but since my dad is in town visiting, I thought I’d make some tasty treats.  I found the Choose Your Own Option Cookies recipe on  I was actually looking for a coconut cookie recipe when I found it, so I chose to use coconut, cinnamon, and egg replacer (as the egg substitute).  The dough was dry, really dry, once I mixed the ingredients together, so I just added 1/4 cup of applesauce in addition to the egg replacer for two eggs that I had already added and it fixed the dryness.  Below are the ingredients I used, but check out other options on the original recipe.  Also, I pressed mine with a fork to flatten them out, but you could use a spoon or even your palm if you don’t want that “peanut butter cookie” look.  These cookies turned out really tasty, most likely because all the sugar and oils that are so pleasing to the palette! Yum!
