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!
