THE BEST Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

A version of The Vegan 8's recipe for Fall cookies with my own twist!


Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • A few dashes of nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Wet ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup pure grade a maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon packed vegan buttery spread 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. (minus the raisins)
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the wet ingredients until creamy. Then, carefully fold in the dry ingredients with a spatula until just combined. Then fold in raisins.
  4. Drop by tablespoonfuls (I use a cookie scooper) onto the prepared sheet pan. 
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden and the tops are slightly cracked. Let them cool at least 10 minutes (they will continue to cook) and transfer them to cool completely on a rack.
  6. ENJOY!!  And sometimes I even made a Oatmeal Creme Pie with them by adding frosting in the middle!
