Tom's Fast and Easy Vegan Pecan Cookies

Vegan means "strict vegetarian." These cookies contain no ingredients derived from animals. (See the Index's home page for a note about using table sugar.)

When preparing this recipe and any other food you enjoy, please use organically-grown vegetables, fruits, grains, and flavorings. The Earth you save may be your own.


  • 1 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1 cup sugar (read this first)
  • 3/4 cup crushed pecans
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Optional: 8oz chocolate chips (note: most brands contain dairy)
  • Water or soy milk (see instructions)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet (yes, you may use canola oil for this).

Mix dry ingredients. Add canola oil and mix. Add water or soy milk until a workable but NOT sticky consistency is reached.

Roll out on a floured countertop, about 1/4 inch thick.

Cut with your favorite cookie cutters and transfer to cookie sheet.

Bake for 13 minutes or until edges are brown.
