Makes about 18 cookies
Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease baking sheets or line them with baking parchment.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and nuts. In another bowl, whisk together the margarine, egg replacer, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture and mix well to combine.
Using a tablespoon, drop the batter 2 inches apart onto the baking sheets. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the bottoms of the cookies begin to brown.
Notes: I've used the ENER-G egg replacer, and Bob's Egg Replacer. I mix 1 tablespoon of the powdered stuff with water as per the package directions, then add it to the recipe. I'm concerned that Earth Balance margarine maybe doesn't work so well as the dough was very crumbly and I had to add more oil to it.
Delores breezed along the surface of her life like a flat stone forever
skipping along smooth water, rippling reality sporadically but oblivious
to it consistently, until she finally lost momentum, sank, and due to an
overdose of flouride as a child which caused her to suffer from chronic
apathy, doomed herself to lie forever on the floor of her life as useless
as an appendix and as lonely as a five-hundred pound barbell in a
steroid-free fitness center.
