Chocolate Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies
This weekend I was perusing the interwebs, looking at random Vegan MoFO, when I came across some Chocolate Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies that someone had made from Veganomicon. They looked so delicious that, had I not been out of cocoa powder, I would have made them right then and there. Alas, I had to wait a whole 24 hours to make them! Let me tell you, these cookies were worth the wait. After I mixed up the dough, I had decided to make 1/2 of them without nuts for my non nut loving boyfriend. This was before I had given the dough a taste. Seriously, I could have eaten the whole thing raw it was so yummy. In the end, I decided to make only 1/3 without nuts which left the other 2/3 all for me (and to share with a few select people). This is very unusual for me. Generally I will give up nuts in an effort to compromise or at least take the smaller portion, but these were just too damn good.
Seriously, if you make these be prepared to have someone to share with. The recipe makes 3 dozen and I easily find myself eating one or two and then wishing they were healthy enough to eat at least one more.
