On the plant-strong diet my husband and I are on, we’re not supposed to have sugar. But I’ve got a raging sweet tooth, so I cheat a little on this. I think this is okay. If I didn’t allow myself to enjoy soy mocha latte and a vegan dessert (or two) on the weekends, I’d probably give up this diet altogether.
Still, there’s a difference between allowing myself to have a little sugar and out-of-control binging, which is what I did the last time I made cookies (see A Cookie Conundrum). In fact, every time I make cookies I gorge until I get sick.
After my last over indulgence, I considered not making cookies anymore. For a minute or two anyway! I know I’ll make cookies again, but if I’m going to bake and binge, I can at least make it as healthy as possible. So I searched for wholesome cookie recipes today and found tons of them!
Six of the recipes sounded so yummy that I decided to share them. Some of them call for eggs, but you can easily veganize them by substituting flaxseeds. To do this, add 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds to 3 tablespoons of water and mix until gelatinous.
