I made a batch of chewy and delicious Vegan Oatmeal Cookies. The ingredients included non dairy chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and of course, organic oatmeal.
Vegan Oatmeal Cookies
1 Tablespoon of ground flaxseed plus 3 tablespoons of water
1 Cup of all-purpose flour (gluten free)
1/2 Teaspoon of baking soda
1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
1 Teaspoon of nutmeg
1/4 Teaspoon of Himalayan salt
1/2 Cup of vegan butter, softened
1/3 Cup plus 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar
1/3 Cup plus 2 tablespoons of organic white sugar
1 Teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 1/2 Cups of old fashion oats
3/4 Cup of dried cranberries, (optional)
1/2 of nondairy chocolate chips
-Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
-In a small bowl, mix flax seed and water together. Set aside and allow flax seed to absorb the liquid.
-In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together.
-In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars together at a medium speed until it’s lightly and fluffy.
-Then add the vanilla and flax mixture to the bowl and mix until incorporated.
-You can slowly add the flour mixture to the bowl, mixing until each addition has been incorporated. Mix well.
-Combine in oats and raisins until evenly distributed in the dough
-Use a cookie scoop and drop 2 tablespoon balls of dough onto a prepared parchment sheet. Bake for 10 – 11 minutes, or until the dough has just set on the top. Remove the cookies from the oven to cool on a baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack the. Enjoy!
