onto cookies ! tis the season to make tons of cookies ! along with the coconut mounds, i made oatmeal cookies and 2 other cookie recipes youll get this week. My thing with oatmeal cookies they’re ALWAYS different. I made 4 diff batches because i was getting so annoyed they werent coming out how i wanted them too.. first i tried no eggs and they were to soft, good but i no my friends/family wouldnt like soft cookies theyd say “there not cooked” no matter how good they were.. then i tried with real eggs and ehhh not to good kinda eggy tasting hockey pucks..id take the soft ones over them lol then these babies came along.. i finally made a healthier oatmeal cookie that is non healthified people approved ;-)!
Vegan Oatmeal Cookies
1.5 cup oats
1/2 cup chopped nuts (i used pecans and almonds)
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2-3 tbs raisins
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tbs coconut oil melted (vegetable oil will work too)
1 ener-g egg (flax egg will work)*
Preheat oven to 375. Mix the “egg” with the amount of water the instructions call for and set it aside. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl then add in the egg. Roll the dough into balls about 2 tablespoons each were the size of my cookies. Makes 16-20 cookies depending on the size. Bake for 10 minutes then let cool for 5 minutes.
* I tried this with a regular egg then even just an egg white and it just wasnt coming well, it had an egg taste to it that’s why i think it tasted best this way.
yumm just enough crunch without being a “raw” tasting cookie.. Enjoy !
Whats your favorite cookies?
Do you go food shopping once a week or do you stretch it for longer?
