Recipe Tuesday: My Favorite Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

Filed under: Food Recipes & Cooking

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to my favorite Oatmeal Raisin cookie. I’d like to say that this recipe came to me in a dream, or perhaps was passed down from my grandmother. That ladies and gentlemen would be a lie.

I lifted it off of a box of Quaker Oatmeal, veganized it and have been using ever since. It’s rather easy actually. I’ve tried many variations but this seems to be my favorite; the one I come back to over and over again.

I’m not saying that you have to use Quaker Oats. Any (not instant) old fashioned oats will work. I just hate letting Wilford Brimley down. It’s (not) the right thing to do.

Recipe after the jump!

Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons Earth Balance, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white (vegan) sugar
2 TBS of ground flax mixed with 1/4 Cup of Water
1 tsp vanilla

1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

3 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup raisins

Preheat your oven 350 degrees.

Mix your #1 ingredients in a large bowl until well combined. In a separate bowl sift / mix your #2 ingredients. Add your #2 ingredients into your #1 ingredients and mix well. Add your #3 ingredients until full incorporated.

Drop tablespoon-sized cookies onto greased cookie sheet (flatten out slightly) Bake @ 350 for 8 – 10 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool on cookie sheet.

    Do you use Earth Balance for the butter?

    I love that you used that photo in your post. He looks familiar enough to be a distant relative or something.
