Last night I made the Super-Charge Me! cookies from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan by Dreena Burton. I’ve seen these so often on Jenna’s blog and thought they would be a great thing to make and have on hand for a quick snack. But of course half the time when I feel like baking I want something a little more “decadent” so I had put off making them for a while. However I can now say that these are decadent in their own way!! I thought they would be kind of like granola in a cookie form, and they sort of are, but they are soft and sweet and much tastier than granola would be if you just baked it into a mound :b So I will definitely be making these again!!
This variety included raisins, chopped dried apricots and bananas, and peanut butter. I looooove how you get the sweet flavor of the maple syrup and the peanut butter when you bite into these. And they definitely are super-charging–I ate the equivalent of about 3 of them last night (between batter and a few bites of the baked ones) and my stomach was SO full.

I think there’s about 2 of these left, I’d better save them for you 😛
Nothing better than eating cookie batter!!! I love that about vegan cookies– no fear of raw eggs :o)
just wanted to say… your basil looks awesome.
mine is new this year so its pretty tiny still. basil is one of my faves as well & i just made some basil ice cream. it was wickedly good.
Katie–this is one of my favorite vegan “plus-sides” to tell to omnivores! Haha! Last week I was seriously considering rolling up my chocolate chip cookie dough in wax paper and selling it raw at the farmer’s market!
selina–thanks! I love basil sooo much…how did you make that ice cream? Sounds like something I’d definitely be into!
These cookies were soooo delicious! They tasted like these Martha Stewart cookies I used to make…only better and more healthy 🙂 I loved how you could taste the peanut butter and banana
Those look amazing. I am drooling!
What a wonderful blog! I love your photos and it looks like you are an amazing chef! Congratulations on your acceptance to law school- you have such an exciting road ahead of you. In the meantime, I look forward to reading more from you!
