I have made these a couple times and adjusted some of the ingredients to be a little more healthy! I’ve been guilty for eating them for breakfast. PLEASE share any adjustments that you make and love in the comment section below!
Chewy Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1 1/4 cups flour (I used unbleached white, but I’m sure wheat would be great too)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon milled flax seed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons maple syrup (I used pure maple syrup)
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with Silpats or spray lightly with cooking spray.
Put raisins in a small bowl and pour warm water over the top. Set aside.
Mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, flax and cinnamon. Set aside.
Mix sugar, apple sauce, oil and vanilla together in a medium bowl. Add the flour mixture and stir until blended. Stir in the oats.
Drain raisins and place back into bowl. Measure and pour the maple syrup over the top. Coat raisins and then fold into the rest of the mix.
Let sit for 10 minutes.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
