A vegan cookie recipe would be a cookie made entirely of fruits and vegetables.  Vegetables are basically anything that is edible plant matter and not a fruit or seed.  Most cookies are primarily cereal grains anyway.  There are surely plenty of recipes for cookies with low fat and low sugar, if you put dried fruit into such a cookie, and used a healthier grain like whole wheat or whatever the cookie would probably be healthier for you than it is unhealthy.

This is why I'm not fat...

vegan cookies < real cookies.
99% of the time all you have to do is switch the butter out for margarine/shortening....
(oh, and sometimes use egg-substitute, but again that's no big deal...)

i have mixed feelings about being fat.
i mean, i love eating, and i don't really have any problems with my current weight / the way i look.
but in italy everyone is uber-skinny (or in france, let's say...). my mind assumes that i will have higher chances of finding a girlfriend if i'm skinnier. uhm. fucked up, yeah?
IMHO, your chances of finding a girlfriend you can be happy with will be higher if
you're happy with yourself, and that doesn't include trying to force yourself to be
skinny if your body doesn't work that way.

Actually I was thinking about getting fat. I love food and the only women I seem to attract are shallow and vindictive, so why not? Things can only improve right?

Not true. I've made some really delicious vegan cookies (and I'm not vegan, so I'm not biased). The ladies who put together the Veganomicon cookbook have excellent baking recipes. They also wrote Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World.

Why are you so sure?

The non-vegan ingredients in cookies are eggs and butter. Earth Balance is excellent at acting like butter, and I don't know how they do it, but Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero make baked goods without eggs that don't taste/feel (because the eggs make the texture?) like they don't have eggs.

I challenge you to a cookie-duel.

My vegan cookies have actually been complimented with the "just like real cookies" title.

I use soy yogurt to replace eggs and earth balance to replace butter (which I can't actually eat because I'm allergic to flax oil, but I'm sure there is a butter replacement without it somewhere). I have also used peanutbutter instead of butter.
Spice cookies are pretty wicked, and need no eggs.

i'd rather have the real butter and eggs. yes, some vegan cookies are good, but don't stack up to the real thing (in my opinion).

I used to think so, too - but there's a place called Avalon Bakery in Detroit that proved me wrong.  :)
