Vegan chocolate-chip cookies for dessert on Meatless Monday

​​No one's saying you have to go meatless just because it's Monday -- but as an incentive to join the growing Meatless Monday movement, we're featuring an animal-free recipe each week.

Using the words "vegan" and "dessert" in the same sentence inevitably makes some people shudder. These cookies should cure that: They're proof that you can have your plant-based dessert and eat it, too.
