Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi There 🙂 A couple weeks ago I received an email from Weekly Bite reader Maura. Her email included one of her favorite recipes {VEGAN OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES}. She gave these cookies such high praise I just had to try them!

These cookies are AMAZING! I kid you not, these are some of the best cookies I’ve ever tasted. And it has nothing to do with the fact that they’re vegan. They are rich, moist, gooey, and delicious. Everything I look for in a cookie.

Mr. Weekly Bite couldn’t stop eating them. After each bite he’d ask “Are you sure these are vegan?”

No mixer is needed with this recipe. Just a bowl & spoon.

Here’s how to make these delicious cookies….

First thing you want to do is combine all your dry ingredients in one bowl: flour, brown sugar, oats, salt, & baking soda.

In a separate bowl, combine all your wet ingredients: canola oil, orange juice, & vanilla.

Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients. Mix well with a spoon. The mixture will be crumbly. No need to worry, its suppose to be that way :).

Add in your chocolate chips.

Roll the dough tightly into 1.5-2 inch balls & bake.

Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2 cups unbleached flour
1 cup quick cook oatmeal
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup vegan chocolate chips
3/4 cup vegetable oil, or melted vegan butter (I use corn oil, I find it works better)
1/3 cup orange juice
1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Combine the oil, orange juice, and vanilla; then mix with the dry. Roll the dough in your hands to make 1 1/2 inch balls. Place them on a large cookie sheet and flatten them to about 1/4 inch thick with your fingers or a fork. Bake at 400 degrees on middle rack for about 12 minutes or until they are just beginning to brown. Cool on cookie racks.

These cookies will be making regular appearances in our house! Thanks Maura 🙂

    These look great! I can’t wait to try them! Especially since they don’t require a mixer! We don’t have a dishwasher, and I HATE doing dishes. 🙂

    Mmmm… I’m a huge fan of oatmeal cookies that have chocolate chips instead of raisins. These look so so good.
