            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.

              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.
