Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adventures in vegan baking! I've spent the last 4 days eating vegan and considering I work with cheese all day I'm pretty proud of myself. That being said I've had wicked sugar cravings. I mean, INTENSE. So I decided to make these:

1 mashed banana (in place of egg)
1 cup Earth Balance (in place of butter)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips (most chocolate above 50% should be milk free, depending on brand)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Blend banana, earth balance, sugars, and vanilla until smooth. Add in the dry ingredients. Fold chocolate chips in to the batter.
Bake for 12 min.

I don't really know how to describe these. They are gooey on the inside and crusty on the outside. The banana flavor is pretty intense, which I love. If you aren't a fan of banana you might want to try a different egg replacer. If you don't look to hard at all the sugar you'd almost think they were good for you!
