Meatless Mondays: Chocolate-Raspberry Cookies

This recipe is yummy.  I made the cookies for a bake sale at Sammy’s school, and maybe not all of them made it to the sale. It’s from Veganomicon, a fantastic cookbook chock full of every kind of food you could want and generally very healthy, but still delicious, recipes.




1/2 c. raspberry preserves

1 c. sugar

1/2 c. canola oil

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. almond extract

1/2 plus 2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder (sift if lumpy)

1 1/2 c. all purpose flour

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

Any guesses as to which ingredient I didn’t have this time?


Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease a cookie sheet.

Mix together the raspberry preserves, sugar, oil, vanilla, and almond extract.

In a separate bowl sift together the other ingredients.  Add the dry to the wet in 3 batches.  You may need to mix the last batch with your hands to get a pliable dough.

Roll the dough into walnut sized balles and flatten them with your hand.  They won’t spread during baking. Bake 10-12 minutes.


This time, I forgot to get the almond extract.  I have remedied the situation and will use it wisely when I make these again.  By the way, they’re still delicious without the almond extract.

Let cool 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.  Or serve them warm with ice cream. (Or just eat the dough and skip the baking.  Not that I would do that. Ahem.)
