I promise you won't miss the eggs in this delicious treat. I've experimented with vegan cookies using whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour but oat flour seems to work best.

Ingredients (18 cookies)
- 2 1/4 cup oat flour
- 1/2 cup cane sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (I used turbinado sugar)
- 1 cup vegan margarine, softened (I used Earth Balance)
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seed (as our egg replacer)
- 1/3 cup warm water (for flax seed)
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet vegan chocolate chips (most chocolate is vegan, avoid milk chocolate)
- 1/2 macadamia nuts, chopped
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp salt
Whisk flaxseed and water in a small bowl and allow to sit for about 10 minutes to get a gooey consistency.
Preheat oven at 400º
In a large bowl mix together sugars, margarine, flaxseed mix, and vanilla extract (you can also use a hand or standing mixer).
In a separate bowl sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together well.
Fold in the macadamia nuts and chocolate chips.
Form the dough into small balls and bake about 6 on a cookie sheet for 9-11 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes before eating.
