Choco bombs - Chocolate Spiced Cookies the vegan edition.

As mentioned previously I self imposed a routine of christmas baking that rivalled the workout regime of any olympic athlete. My favourite cookie turned out to be so delish that I had to make a batch for personal consumption. It's completely different from what you'll find in Martha or Rachel. For one, it's a vegan cookie, and, this cookie is a taste-splosion not made for the bland general public...see that's why they have big money and write recipes for sugar cookies and I blog for free. Greatness sometimes has to wait for the world to catch up, and this cookie surly is great.
look at all them cookies soliders
Part A
1/2 c. oil
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
3 TBSP almond milk
1/4 c maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp chocolate extract
3 TBSP fresh ground ginger - no powdered ginger, fresh only.
1 tsp cinnamon
1 oz. chopped semi sweet chocolate

Part B
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 c. coco powder
1 2/3 c. flour

Sugary Coating
1/2 c white sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
couple pinches of salt

Heat oven to 350 F, and prepare baking sheets with parchment paper.
Mix together the Sugary Coating on a shallow plate for later use
Whip together Part A until well mixed
Add the ingredients in Part B in order.
Combine well and start rolling into balls about 2 - 3 inches round
roll the balls in the sugary coating and place on the cookie sheet.
Give 'em a little squash with a fork and send them to the oven for 12 - 15 mins.

dark matter found- Dec. 2011
I know there's this little problem in astrophysics about missing dark matter...fear no more space geeks, I found it. Check out the inside of that cookie, the ultra dense dark matter is all there - yummy, yummy dark matter.
Get yourself a stack of these cookies, a hot tasty drink and a movie involving space travel, leave Martha and Rachel choking on your space dust and fly head long into the future.
Live long and prosper.
