Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

OK, these seriously are the best cookies I have ever had.  Everyone in my house loves them.  It is not uncommon to go through all 18 in one evening....we are a family of five, after all, and daddy is 6'3" and 220 pounds!  They make the house smell wonderful and you can be sure if someone visits they will be leaving with some to take home.  They are so simple but they must be cooked for exactly 8 minutes or the bottoms burn.  It took a few trial runs but I have it down to a science now.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/3 cup almond butter
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup cane sugar/sucanat
1/3 cup vanilla rice milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup spelt flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup non-dairy chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Oil 2 baking sheets and set aside.
Wisk together first five ingredients until smooth and creamy.  Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the baking sheets.  Leave room between the cookies because they flatten out as they cook.  Bake for exactly 8 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool for 15-20 minutes before transferring them to a plate or they will break apart.  Makes about 18 cookies.
