1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup canola oil
1/4 cup applesauce (or 1 egg substitute)
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups crushed peppermint candy (I use Candy Canes)
1 1/2 cups vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Mix sugar, brown sugar, oil, & egg replacer in large bowl. Mix flour, baking soda, salt in separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet. Stir well. Add crushed Peppermint (I use candy canes, crushed in the vitamix) and chocolate chips. Combine well. If it is a little dry, add a small amount of “milk” (I used almond milk) to make it cookie consistency. Drop on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 min. Cool on wire rack and enjoy.
