Chocolate Fudgy Oatmeal Cookies

Decided to make some cookies on Friday... and there are still some around!

Chocolate Fudgy Oatmeal Cookies
adapted from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero
(says it makes 2 1/2 dozen, but I got 51 cookies from it!)

2 cups quick cooking oats
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
2/3 cup soy milk
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. almond extract
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts
1 cup raisins or dried cherries (optional)

Preheat oven to 350*. Mix together the dry ingredients, then slowly add the wet ones. Add the walnuts last, and mix until just combined. Drop by the spoonful onto a parchment-covered cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies are firm and risen. Let cookies rest for 5 minutes before moving to cooling racks.

These were really good! (and mostly healthy) I keep wishing I'd added some cherries though, so next time, that's what I'll try. :)
