Vegan Ultimate Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake is best served with dairy free milk of course!

One of these days I will venture out and get the required ground flax seed (which isn't that expensive) or the Ener G Egg Replacer, but for now sticking to can do no wrong apple cider vinegar, applesauce, or bananas as substitute for shell cracking.
Originally, I did set out to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies, but they failed and not wanting to throw away a big bowl of batter, I scooped the rest into a cake pan and voila! cookie cake happened.
It is the most delicious, yummy, sensational accident ever of cookies meeting cake for a romantic date! With an irresistibly terrific combination- warm chocolate chips, oats, crunchy walnuts, and coconut with a kick of spicy cinnamon, how can it go wrong?
Well, if one slice can calm cravings and almond milk is always on hand, there is no problem....

Yes! Plated almost successfully.
Helping myself to one slice. Just one.
One lovely slice.
