Hello & Happy Thursday!!
If there is one cookie that remains to be iconic, it’s the oatmeal raisin cookie. However, it’s one of those cookies either you love or you hate and if you’ve had a bad one chances are.. you probably hate it lol. With today be National Raisin Day, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to explore this staple cookie and make a vegan version!
Believe it or not, the last time I made an oatmeal raisin cookie, with perhaps in home economics in high school. That long ago! Needless to say I was psyched to reinvent this cookie to be vegan friendly, and I’m just so glad I did.
What’s fab about this vegan version, is just everything! It’s fairly quick, easy, doesn’t feature any fancy vegan ingredients, it mirrors the traditional variety exactly, has a buttery soft texture, is packed with oats and golden raisins, they are perfect for any season, can easily be made in bulk, you could add in chocolate chips if desired, the applesauce serves as your vegan egg, and they are just too good!
If you’re looking to revisit this classic cookie, I promise, you’ll love these vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!!
