double chocolate vegan, gluten-free AMAZING cookies

You were probably wondering what to feed your vegan friends who are gluten intolerant?  As in, no wheat, no dairy, no eggs?  The wife goes to a solstice party this evening with the dish to pass.  LUCKY FOR HER I made her these cookies ***  Ithaca, of course, is full of vegans, and a lot of people avoid wheat these days, but why should all these awesome people suffer through life desert-free and grim and miserable?

***Gary Rith's awesome and amazing gluten-free vegan chocolate cookies
makes 16 large or 24 small
(As long as you can buy chocolate chips and cocoa powder which are non-dairy--easy to do in Ithaca)

preheat oven to 350

--in large bowl, mix 1/3 cup soy milk and 2 TBS ground flax seeds
--add in 2/3 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup oil, like canola, and 1 teas. vanilla
--mix in 3/4 cup oat flour, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1/4 teas. baking soda
--fold in 1.5 cups quick cooking oatmeal
--stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup nuts, like walnuts or pecans
--drop spoonfuls onto baking sheet
--bake 10-12 minutes
--remove from oven, let cool several minutes then use spatula to set them onto wire rack to finish cooling, YUM!

I'm not a chocolate eater but I love the the way the cookies look on that plate. The color and contrast make me want to use them in my own work.....hmmmmm!

I am neither vegan nor gluten free but I'd happily eat that entire plate of chocolate cookies!
