Vegan oatmeal cookies! 

I’ve always been a fan of cookies and cakes. Look, I’m not going to lie and say I wouldn’t  eat a whole cake in one sitting…

There are loads of vegan options for sweat treats out there but I resent spending a million pounds on them just to feel blargh afterwards (because they’re tooooo sweet, y’know?) so I tend to always have a fully stocked baking cupboard in my kitchen.

I got a little peckish today and wanted oatmeal and raisen cookies but, sadly, I ate all the raisens at breakfast. I know; first World problem.

I did manage to muddle these together, though. I’m calling them:

Vegan Oatmeal, coconut, vanilla, almond cookies… 

Before I give you the details I’m going to start off by warning – this isn’t like a normal, sticky, cookie dough. It’s dry but it will smoosh together! 

Preheat oven to 180c

Ingredients:

1.5 cups of rolled oats

1 cup of plain flour

1/2 cup coconut flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup of light brown sugar

1/2 cup vegan butter

3 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 almond extract

1 tbsp almond milk

… 

There’s no magic order to do the next part. Get it all in a bowl and mix it however you want (I use a spoon but if you have a mixer, go to town!). 

Like I said, the mixture will be crumbly but you can gather it together to make balls. Whack them onto a lined baking tray (they don’t spread, much, so you can put them close together) and cook em for 15 minutes.

When they come out grab a fork and press them down lightly and then leave to cool… If you can wait. 

Enjoy!
