Vegan Oatmeal Cookies

In an attempt to be true to my word I am once again trying my hand at vegan baking.  While my intention at this time is not to go 100% vegan my goal is to eat a predominantly vegan diet.  Previously I have posted my vegan banana bread recipe which is a huge success in my household and among non veg friends.

I am inspired by Chef Chloe Coscarelli who recently won Food Network’s Cupcake Wars.  A show I really don’t like by the way…  However, I am hopeful that food television in general takes her victory as a sign that there is a lot of inspiration in veg/vegan cooking and they will perhaps finally consider hosting a veg friendly show on one of their networks.

Yesterday I woke up early with some energy.  Living in Florida I try to keep my oven off during the day but I figured at 7am and a mere 77 degrees outside, what the heck?  Nothing beats a fresh baked cookie!  Cookies are a favorite food of mine but I am pretty much off the store bought varieties, they pretty much taste like the chemicals they are baked with.

After viewing several recipes online I came up with this one, which is a mixture of several others I looked at.  The ingredients were all in my pantry or fridge and it seemed simple enough.  The result are a rich chewy oatmeal cookie.  While I prefer a crisp cookie these are definitely a great start to creating a really great vegan cookie.
