VCIYCJ’s Oatmeal Cookies

Published January 25, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

So this is the first recipe I’ve tried from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. The last time I made oatmeal raisins, I consulted this book and many other recipes and ended up just doing my own thing. My recipe was more of a traditional oatmeal cookie, only with the addition of pumpkin seeds. In this recipe, I followed it exactly, with the exception of chocolate chips for raisins (out of raisins!), and got a very different textured sort of cookie. Kind of like a chewy granola bar. The recipe said 10 minutes for chewy cookies, and 12 minutes for crispy, but I baked mine for 13 and got a slightly chewy middle. It’s a very oatmeal dense cookie, as you can tell by how little batter there is before the oatmeal and raisin addition. In the future I’ll stick with my recipe for a more traditional cookie, but these were yummy in their own right, confirmed by several people at work. (In fact, two people that normally don’t like oatmeal cookies were just crazy about these!)

There was very little batter before adding the oats & chocolate chips.

1 1/2 cups of oats and 1/2 c. of chocolate chips subbed for raisins

you’ll need to flatten these out on the cookie sheet because they won’t spread in the oven!
