Ingredients

  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup of dry oats
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or 1 tablespoon oil + 1 tablespoon of soy milk
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup of sugar or artificial sweetener
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce
  • egg substitute equivalent of 1 egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1/4 cup raisins**
  • 1/4 cup of nuts or seeds (optional)
  • **I used 1/4 cup chocolate chips instead of raisins.

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Prepare a cookie sheet either with non-stick spray or a parchment paper.
  • Sift the salt, cinnamon, baking soda into the flour and oatmeal in a bowl.
  • Stir to blend together.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat olive oil (and/or milk) together with the vegan sugar.
  • Add in applesauce and egg substitute and beat well.
  • Add in the flour mixture and beat on medium until a semi-stiff dough forms.
  • This dough will be very slightly sticky.
  • At this point, add the vanilla essence, raisins and nuts (if you are using) and mix well into the dough.
  • This step will require a little more strength because the dough is pretty stiff due to the whole wheat flour.
  • But just try to incorporate the raisins into the dough.
  • Drop by tablespoonful about 3 to a row.
  • Flatten to about 3/4.
  • Just keep in mind that this dough will barely flatten out when its baking so what you see is what you get.
  • Just don't flatten it too thin that it will turn out to be crunchy like a biscuit instead of crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
  • You will probably get about 15 to a standard 9x13 cookie tray. Bake in the center of oven for about 10-12 minutes.
  • When its done, remove from cookie tray and cool on a rack.
  • It is very good just out of the oven and still slightly warm!
