Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (with flaxseed)
1 cup dairy-free margarine, preferably Earth Balance
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats, thick cut if you can get them
1 cup or more dairy-free vegan chocolate chips
Preheat oven at 375 degrees F. Mix together flaxseed meal and water, set aside for 3-5 minutes. Cream (beat well) vegan margarine and both types of vegan sugar. Stir flaxseed mixture and add with vanilla to the vegan margarine mix. Beat until blended. Sift together dry ingredients, except oats and chips. Add to vegan margarine mixture. Stir in oats then chips. Scoop or drop onto baking sheet, preferably lined with parchment or silpat. The dough is a little crumbly, so it helps to use a scoop.
Bake 8-12 minutes, depending on size of cookies.
