I know, we all watch what we eat and always strive for the healthiest meals. But what is life without a little sinful dessert?! You don't have to eat them often, but once in a while why not be bad? So bad, yet so good. These ooey-oogey chewy cookies are what you need to hit the spot! Am I tempting you yet? >:)
Now, I can keep on describing how good these cookies really are, but you will never know what heaven tastes like until you take a bite out of one of these yourself!
Well here you go. . . I have finally decided to share this recipe with all of you!
“Being a vegan just helps me build up my self-esteem. I feel good about it every time I eat a meal.” -Steve-O
Preheat oven to 350F convection air = 375F conventional oven and cook for 17 min.
Do keep an eye out for every oven is different.
2 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups flour ( plus 2 tbsp )
1 1/2 cups V-sugar*
1/2 cup coconut flakes
3/4 cup cranberries
1 cup large dark thompson seedless raisins
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 heaping tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup V-butter* or V-becel*
1/2 cup of almond milk ( or less )
*V-sugar = vegan white sugar
*V-butter / V-becel = vegan butter
In a stand mixer add all ingredients with the exception of the butter and milk.
Mix for a few minutes until nice and incorperated.
Add the butter and mix well on a low setting
Finally add the milk slowly ( you many not need the full amount ) on a low setting and then bring it up to a #3 setting, and mix everything well, until it all comes together. The dough should not be liquidy, but wet and slightly firm, not dry.
Now how easy was that :)
Note: THESE WILL NOW GO INTO A PREHEATED 350F OVEN FOR ABOUT 17 TO 20 MIN. OR UNTIL THE COOKIE IS A NICE LIGHT GOLDEN COLOUR.
LET THEM COOL OFF FOR ABOUT 5-10 MINUTES ON YOUR COOKIE
TRAY BEFORE PUTTING THEM ONTO A WIRE RACK TO COOL OFF
