Chocolate Agave Bran Cookies

These cookies are the best I've ever had! I think I have made at least four batches of these in just a month!
And that's saying something considering I hardly ever make the same recipe twice.

Not only are they vegan but they are also sugar free and have a good dose of extra fiber in them. Did I mention they are delicious as well?

This cookie recipe came out of necessity. I was going to remake the recipe for the Chocolate Agave Trail Mixers from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar but I was all out of whole wheat flour. I didn't want to use just white flour and I had some wheat bran sitting in cupboard so I decided to try using it. To my delight they turned out awesome!

  1. This sounds really good!!! I love adding nuts! Chopped almonds are my favorite!

  3. These sound so good! This recipe is definitely a keeper. :)

  4. The look of these reminds me of one of my favorite bars - Odwalla! Although I can't eat them anymore, as they hurt my stomach. But I cannot wait to try these! They look delicious.

  5. wow this looks like a vegan recipe i can really get behind! i'm excited to try these

  6. These look SO CHOCOLATEY!!! Oh my gosh, I'm drooling on my keyboard. I also love wheat bran and I'm always looking for recipes that use them. Sounds delicious!

  7. Chocolate and bran are an amazing combination!!! I love bran-y things because of the texture, and the great punch of chocolate is fantastic!

    Yay I am so happy to be coming to Calgary hehe xoxo <3

  8. Amid maturation, yeast separates sugars, as it attempts to expend them, and liquor is framed. Various plants can be utilized to make liquor, and in Europe grape-based wine has been extremely mainstream for quite a long time.Organic Agave nectar
