  1. This book is fabulous. I am not a vegan, but I cook in a facility that uses no dairy, and have found that every recipe I've tried from here has been very good. I've bought two copies for friends, and they agree.

    1. good cookies:
      - easy Vegan Banana Cookies - for my across-the-street neighbor who shares her delicious Indian dishes with me - yesterday she brought a warm pudding made of cream of wheat-butter-sugar-coconut milk-cardamom that was so good it was devoured in seconds! She doesn't bake and I am making vegan cookies/cakes for her.
      Recipe: Preheat oven to 350°F. Mash 1 ripe banana with fork. Stir in 1/3 cup vegetable
      oil, 2/3 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add 3/4 cup all-purpose flour + 2 Tbl. flour, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon; mix together just to moisten. Add 2 cups of rolled oats or quick-cooking oats (not instant) with 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup chocolate chips - I also added 1/2 cup of raisins. Mix well with hands. If this mixture is too wet, add another tablespoon of flour - it really depends on the size of the banana. Roll balls of dough in wet hands - just a scant smaller than a golf ball, and flatten slightly; place 2 inches apart (they don't spread) on a parchment-lined baking sheet (I used Silpat) and bake for 10 - 12 minutes until lightly browned - I baked them just for 10 minutes, browned on bottoms and firm to touch on top but no color, moist and chewy inside. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then remove to a rack to finish cooling. For breakfast cookies: substitute 2 Tablespoons of ground flax seed for the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
