Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

What you need: 

1/2 cup vegan margarine
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Ener-G Egg Replacer+ 2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup raisins or other dried fruit
3/4 cup all-purpose (or whole wheat, etc.) flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/16 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups cinnamon apple dry oatmeal or plain rolled oats (I use Quaker cinnamon apple Oatmeal)
dash nondairy milk, if needed

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream margarine, granulated vegan sugar and brown sugar together in a mixing bowl. Mix water and egg replacer together.
2. Add vanilla, egg replacer, and dried fruit to the margarine mixture. Add flour and mix, then baking soda and powder. Mix. Finally, add oats and salt, and mix. This prevents ingredient overload in the mixing bowl.
3. Add a dash nondairy milk if necessary; the batter will be extremely thick and sticky, but it shouldn't be dry. Place cookies on cookie sheets. The cookies will not have spread, so you don't have to worry about how far away to space your cookies.
4. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet. Remove to wire rack and allow cookies to cool.
Possible variations: vegan chocolate chips, cinnamon, extra vanilla, almond extract, nuts, etc.

Preparation Time: 
About 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 


By far the best recipe for vegan oatmeal raisin cookies I've ever tried!  ;)b 
I modified a little:  *used 1/3c appplesauce for 1/2 of the margarine  *used 1/4c white and 3/4c whole wheat flour  *added 3/4tsp cinnamon.

The results?  Lightly sweet, flavorful, just the right combo of crispy and moist.

Terrific- thank you for sharing!


I really liked these. I used plain rolled oats and instead of marg I used half canola oil and half applesauce. I also used 1/4 cup applesauce instead of egg replacer. I used sultanas instead of raisins. Don't be tempted to add more raisins/sultanas, 1/2 cup is enough. These didn't make many cookies, and the cookies I made weren't big. Next time I'll double the recipe. The mixture was quite wet, so I rolled spoonfuls between two wooden spoons to make balls and dropped the balls onto a baking sheet. They didn't flatten out like I expected, so half way through baking I flattened them a bit with a fork. They were relatively easy and quick to make. I liked them.


My dough came out very dry and crumbly ??? I gradually added more wet stuff (applesauce and soy milk) and I think I overworked the mixture trying to get an cookie dough consistency--the finishe'd cookies were kinda glutenous and bready. They tasted just so-so but I like them b/c they aren't as sweet as most cookies are.


Ooooh, yummy! These cookies are perfect! I made a double batch for a work potluck (for all non-vegans and non-vegetarians), and everyone was RAVING about them all day long. Even a co-worker who says she hates oatmeal raisin cookies loved them!! Thanks for a great recipe!
