Vegan Cookie Recipes
Written by Mattie    
Do you think I could I sub honey for molasses in this recipe and produce desirable results? For science!! This is the only vegan cookie recipe I have ever seen that looks like it will pass the rigorous tests of my chocolate chip cookie snobbery :) Thanks a bunch, love and light

Hi misfitcupcake, the molasses are in the cookies to build on chewiness and add depth of flavor. I don't think honey would be as effective on both fronts but it is about 80% fructose which will hold onto moisture and increase chewiness by a moderate amount. Just not as much as molasses theoretically. They'll still probably turn out good with it though! -but obviously not be vegan.
