Day 92: Vegan Oatmeal Cookies

     The other day I had a major sweet craving, so I decided to pull out my handy dandy cook book "The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur" by Kelly Peloza, that I originally talked about on day 28, and make her Crispy Chewy Oatmeal Cookies.

       The recipe came out perfect with the sugar caramelizing around the edges. I left out the raisins in mine for I was too lazy to go to the store. I also inevitably ended up halving the recipe as well since I have no self control and would eat them all if I didn't, but am listing the full original recipe below. Enjoy!

Oatmeal Cookies
2/3 cup of canola oil
2/3 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup of soymilk
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 2/3 cups of oats
1 1/3 cups raisins

    Step 1: In a large mixing bowl stir in all the ingredients, except the oats and raisins, and beat with an electric beater. Stir in the oats and raisins. If the dough is too dry and crumbly, add an additional amount of soymilk until it reaches it desired consistency.

    Step 2: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Take about two tablespoons worth of dough, place lightly on a greased baking sheet, and flatten. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown around the edges.


  1. I just made these for the second time but I made a few changes this time around. I substituted banana for the oil, used almond extract instead of vanilla, and almond milk for the soy milk, and added walnuts instead of raisins. They turned out amazingly!!! So yummy. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. I am glad you liked it. I also have one other no-bake oatmeal cookie recipe that uses almond milk instead of soy milk. It is my favorite oatmeal recipe yet. I would love to know what you think of it. They kind of have the consistency of rice crispy treats.
