Vegan Maple Walnut Cookies

Usually, I am a fiend for chocolate.  A dessert missing this magic ingredient has to be pretty special.  But that’s what these Vegan Maple Walnut Cookies are.  Special.  They are soft, sweet, with a delicious crunch.  The only issue you’ll have, is how to stop eating them!

Mix everything together, and the dough for the Maple Walnut Cookies is ready!  Don’t worry if it seems a little more runny than typical cookie dough.  The cookies will firm up in the oven.

Scoop out cookie dough from the bowl with a spoon!  If you want, place a whole walnut on top of each cookie for added decoration 🙂
