We just got home a little bit ago and I have no idea what I am going to make for dinner. Emma said she wanted cookies for a snack and I didn't argue. I made them healthier by making them vegan and by using spelt flour instead of white. I adapted an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe from the cookbook "Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan" by Dreena Burton. They were by far the best Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies I ever made.
Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
adapted from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan
1 cup spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup oats (or 1/4 cup oats and 1/4 cup barley flakes)
1/4 cup organic unbleached sugar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (I use grade B)
1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses
1 1/2 tsp vanilla paste
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup chocolate chips (use vegan choc chips for a true vegan cookie)
Put all of the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and stir until incorporated. The batter will be thick.
Place mounds of dough on a cookie sheet. I used the pampered chef medium scoop and got 10 cookies out of this batter.
Enjoy with a big glass of
milk soy milk!
