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!

3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

1. Preheat oven to 325
2. Whisk together non-dairy milk, flax, agave, extracts, and oil for about 2 min

  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.

  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
