Vegan Cookies from a Regular Cake Mix

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Vegan Cookies from a Cake Mix
I remember the first time I tried cookies made from a cake mix. I was in elementary school, and one of our teachers brought them for a Parents' Night at the school. I was completely amazed that a person could buy a cake mix in an exotic flavor (say Pistachio or Cherry - depending what flavors are stylish in a certain year) and make cookies in cool flavors and colors.

I enjoy experimenting, and as I thought back to that experience, I thought, "It MUST be possible to do the same thing in a Vegan Cookie!"

Because you see, many if not most cake mixes are Vegan (just double check the ingredients). So, it's a simple matter of substituting Vegan things for the usual add-ins, and adjusting baking time slightly to make the entire recipe Vegan : )

Whether you're Vegan, abstaining from Dairy & Eggs for a Lenten Season, or have an allergy in the family, this recipe makes it possible to have your cookie & eat it, too! : )

Regular Strawberry Cake Mix

Vegan Cookies from a Regular Cake Mix
Stir together:
1 Box Regular Cake Mix (that happens to be Vegan). I used Strawberry for this one.
1/2 Cup Oil (Use one that is not strongly flavored - I use Sunflower for baked goods)
1/2 Cup Applesauce
A handful of any desired add-ins such as Vegan Chocolate Chips, Raisins, or Chopped Nuts.

Cookie Dough Dropped onto Prepared Baking Tray
Drop onto prepared cookie sheet, about 2" apart, to allow for spreading when they bake.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 15 minutes, till very lightly golden on the bottom.
Allow to cool for just a few minutes to firm up before removing from pan, as these can be slightly delicate when still very hot.

Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
