This is so simple to make with no weird ingredients! This is exactly the theme of my book, all my classic favourite recipes made vegan with no weird ingredients. Because veganism isn’t really as weird as it sounds, I promise.

…Ok, I admit there is nutritional yeast in the book, but depending on how long you have been vegan, it isn’t a weird ingredient anymore.


The cookies will look pretty raw when they are ready, but you will know they are done because they will have spread and the underside of the cookie will be golden brown. That’s the secret for chewy cookies, don’t over bake them. Let the cookies cool to set.

Try not to turn into the cookie monster.

Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Crispy on the outside, chewy in the middle. So easy to make with no weird ingredients.

Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup vegan butter , cold (such as Earth Balance)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips (or sub raisins for oatmeal raisin cookies)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F (180C). Lightly grease a baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  3. In a medium bowl, add all the wet ingredients, and use a beater to cream the vegan butter and sugar together. Dump the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix. I find different vegan butter brands have different moisture contents, so if you find the dough is a little dry, add up to 1 Tablespoon of water until the dough holds together. When it just comes together stir in the chocolate chips. Feel free to snack on cookie dough, it can be eaten raw!
  4. Take two tablespoons of cookie dough and roll into a ball and place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until you have used up all the cookie dough. Bake 14 to 18 minutes, the cookies will have spread but look almost raw, they should be golden on the on underside. Let cool on the pan to let the cookies set.
