Wahoo! Ride ’em Cowboy Cookies [Vegan]

Today is Saturday and that means football!  These are a tailgating favorite.  You could dump just about anything you wanted into these in terms of chip, or chip-like substance.  Sub different flavored chocolate chips, use toffee chips, peanut butter chips if you like (the later will flip your cookies from vegan to vegetarian).  I like these because they come together in a flash and the only person that I’ve found that doesn’t like ’em is my friend Andrea and that is because she is allergic to coconut (which is a horrible thing to be allergic to).  I scooped a few out before the coconut so she wouldn’t miss out 😉Image

  2. Sounds like you could make these without the coconut? Do you think if you did they would hold together OK?

  3. Totally. I made the first 2 dozen without coconut for Andrea before I added it in for the rest. Those without coconut cooked about 1 minute faster.

  5. Has anyone calculated the nutritional values for this? I’m getting about 230 cals per cookie if you make 5 dozen. Does that sound right?
