Vegan Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

posted on: Thursday, October 16, 2008

So far all the real effort I've put into preparing for Halloween has been to search for3T costumes on Freecycle. My peripheral effort has been checking blogs such as this one that has cute Halloween crafts. So a couple days ago in an attempt to not do my readings for school and still feel like I was being productive with a book I decided to make this.
Grad school is awesome for coming up with elaborate justifications and terrible for your ego...but more on that later or maybe never since this blog is my escapism from real responsibilities. None the less my Halloween craft for the year was made. Voila!

Today another bloggy blog inspired me to make another Halloween thing. O.K fine, it's not really Halloween cookies but since it involves pumpkins than it's all good. So I made a batch of pumpkin cookies inspired by La Fuji Mama who needs to stop posting such good recipes before I drown in my own drool.

I modified the original recipe so that they are vegan. I'm going to a very crunchy granola pot luck in 10 minutes so I think they'll be a hit.
