Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies


Blogging Marathon # 13 starts from today and I chose to go with "Eggless / Vegan Baking" as the theme. This week long, I am going to post some of my kids' favorite stuff that I regularly bake in my kitchen.
Chocolate, cheese and olives are my daughter's favorite foods. She doesn't prefer any sweet stuff on her plate but the whole scenario changes when it comes to chocolate. The girl somehow had to force herself to eat even a tiny portion of her own birthday cake but the magical chocolate makes her forget the fact that she is in no love with sweet stuff. :) And these chocolate chip cookies top her favorite "chocolate" stuff.

Though I don't remember the source, this recipe comes from a  cookbook and yield very yummy cookies. The ingredients yield about 3 dozen cookies, if made in small size. 

Ingredients:
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter (vegan margarine for vegan version)
2 Tbsp honey (pure maple syrup for vegan version)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (vegan choc. chips for vegan version)


Method:
* Preheat the oven to 350 deg F / 180 deg C.
* Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Stir in the honey and vanilla and mix well.
* In another mixing bowl, add flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
* Add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Stir well to combine and fold in chocolate chips.
* Drop the dough on ungreased cookie sheets by tablespoons (half or full depending upon the size you prefer). You can flatten them a little if you wish. Bake until slightly browned around the edges, about 15 minutes. (I baked 3 - 4 minutes more.) Remember that they firm up a little after cooling.
* Cool and store in an airtight container.

I was eating the batter and it was so good but when I baked them they tasted like baking soda. I would recommend leaving the baking soda out.

I am not sure why your batch tasted like baking soda and sorry to hear about it. I have tried these cookies a few times before and I never had any complaints. They were good.
