Crazy Good Vegan Cookies

  I know what you're thinking. Vegan cookies? gross. But I swear to you, they're delicious!!  My friend Lexi and I had a sleepover and decided to whip some up, her being vegan-minded and all.  They're really easy (if you have a food processor, or in my case a magic bullet) and so tasty!  Here we go:

What You'll Need:
2 cups roasted almonds
4 cups oatmeal
A pinch or 2 of salt
1 1/4 cup of flour
1 cup canola oil
1 cup maple syrup (the real stuff, not that fake Eggo crap)
Your favorite jam, or 2, or 3

First things first. Put your almonds into the food processor and chop! Make sure not to get them too fine, the big chunks are the best. Put them in a big bowl.

Then do the same to the oatmeal, but this can be pretty finely ground.
Combine the two in the big bowl.

Add in the salt and flour.

Next add your canola oil and maple syrup.

Stir up all the ingredients into you get a big sticky ball of dough (yes Chris, sticky)
Let the dough sit for 15-20 minutes to stiffen a bit.

Then doll out about a tbs of dough onto a sprayed baking pan, or foil if like me you don't have any baking sheets :( careful not to burn your fingers like me too!

Then, using the backside of a big wooden spoon, make indents into the balls of dough.

Fill these holes with a tsp of jam, or more depending on the size of the cookie, I like to spread it out over the cookie top a bit cause its so yummy ;)

Bake your cookies for 13-40 minutes, its hard to time due to varying oven crapiness, basically until they look darker tan and the jam is all bubbly.

Let them cook on a rack and then eat up!!
