These cookies are so moist that they will crumble and fall apart if you're not careful, but once you take a bite, you'll realize it's worth it. So chewy and flavorful you won't even have to tell people there isn't any butter, white flour, or eggs! They made me remember that oatmeal cookies can be so good you don't even miss the chocolate.
Chewy Vegan Oatmeal Cookies
How I Did It:
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp raisins
1. Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
2. In a larger bowl, mix together the sugars, maple syrup, applesauce, oil, and vanilla until well combined.
3. Add in the dry mixture and stir until just combined. Stir in the oats and raisins, making sure they are evenly distributed.
4. Place in the refrigerator to rest for about 15 minutes and preheat the oven to 350
5. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto a prepared (Silpat) cookie sheet. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until the edges are set, but the center looks slightly undone.
6. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Store in an airtight container.
