Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe
By Loving It Vegan
🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes
1/2 cup Vegan Butter (112g)
1 cup Light Brown Sugar (200g)
1 Tbsp Golden Syrup or Maple Syrup
1 Tbsp Dark Molasses
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 and 1/2 cups Rolled Oats (144g)
1 cup All Purpose Flour (125g)
1 cup Dessicated Coconut (80g) Finely Shredded Coconut
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 Tbsp Soy Milk or other non-dairy milk
3/4 cup Raisins (105g) small and seedless
1/2 cup Chopped Walnuts (64g) optional
1Add the vegan butter and brown sugar to the bowl of an electric mixer and cream them together. Add in the golden syrup, molasses and vanilla and mix in.
2Add the rolled oats, all purpose flour, dessicated coconut, baking soda, salt and cinnamon to a mixing bowl and mix together.
3Add the dry ingredients in with the wet and mix in (by hand, don't use the electric mixer for this part) until crumbly.
4Add in the soy milk and mix again. Your dough should be very thick, but you should be able to roll it into a ball and have it stick together perfectly at this stage.
5Add in the raisins and chopped walnuts and mix in.
6Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
7Roll the dough into balls and place onto the parchment lined baking tray. Aim to get around 20 cookies. Try to ensure the raisins are spread out in the cookie dough so that you don't end up with some cookies having no raisins and some cookies having a lot of raisins.
8Place into the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes.
9The tops will be golden brown and the edges firm but the cookies will be very soft in the middle.
10Allow the cookies to cool on the baking tray and firm up before moving them.
