Amazingly Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every once in a while life tosses you an amazing surprise.  I love baking fresh cookies and like a lot of people chocolate chicp loaded with plenty of walnuts is definately my favorite.  This year I took a chance and wanted to see if there is any way to make a vegan cookie.  These cookies are so soft and chewey you can't stop eating them!  The biggest die hard cookie fan won't even realize that this sweet treat is totally vegan.

2 cups flour (I used Self-Rising. If you aren't, add in 1 Tsp of Baking Soda)
1 small bannana (mashed until liquefied)
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 cup Earth Balance butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup soy milk
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups Sunspire 42% Cacao Chips
1 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375.  Mix flour, Baking Powder, mashed bananna and butter in large bowl.  Blend together with fork or pasty cutter until no clumps of butter are visible.  Add brown sugar, milk salt and vanilla and continue to mix until dough is moist and well blended.  Add chips and walnuts stirring well to distribute chips evenly into batter.  Coat cookie sheet with a vegetable oil cooking spray.  Drop cookies by spoon on to pan at least 1 1/2 inches and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and slightly moist in the center.  Makes approximately 4 1/2 dozen small cookies 2 1/2 Large ones)
