    Egg-Free and Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookies (for the Planet Saver in all of us!)

    On hand:
    A heart full of love and patience
    Kids (big or little ones) to help
    Your favorite music

    On the table:
    2 ½ cups of flour
    ½ cup canola oil
    1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
    ½ cup of agave nectar (yes, agave, we’ve heard the stories, and we’re all about moderation!)
    ½ teaspoon of salt
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    1 cup vegan chocolate chips

    1. Turn on your favorite music
    2. Hug kids
    3. Combine flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl
    4. Then combine agave, vanilla and oil in a smaller bowl
    5. Mix all ingredients together in the large bowl, adding chocolate chips
    6. Have your little ones make 1/2 inch balls and drop them on a slightly greased cookie tray
    7. Bake at 350° for 7-10 minutes
    8. Cool and serve

    Makes about 24 cookies (20 if you have four little nibblers at the table).
    And the best part about them? You may just be doing your part to save the planet with these delicious vegan treats (as they don’t require the use of animal products whose industrialization as a food source is showing an increasing impact on the health of our environment).
