The Ultimate Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

208 comments

This week I had a request from a local customer who wanted to purchase vegan oatmeal cookies. He said that he has been looking for a vegan oatmeal cookie that would obtain the approval of his children.

The only specification was that they could not have chocolate chips which is normally how his kids prefer oatmeal raisin cookies.

Not wanting to crush his dreams and tell him I actually didn’t have a vegan oatmeal cookie recipe in my ‘baking holster’, I smiled and said, ‘Of course I can make you some oatmeal raisins cookies. No problem!’

I knew I had some work to do. *gulp.

Batch #1 was an excellent attempt, but not quite there yet.

Batch #2 had me hook, line, and sinker.

That wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

The Ultimate Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

Inspired by Salt Kissed Chunky PB Chocolate Chip Cookies & Vegetarian Times.

Ingredients:

  • 1 & 3/4 cups walnuts, toasted
  • 2 cups regular oats, divided
  • 3/4 cup white Kamut flour (other flours probably work!)
  • 1/2 cup Sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 3.5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup raisins

 

Directions: Preheat oven to 350F and grease a baking sheet. Place 1.75 cups of walnuts on the baking sheet. Toast walnuts in oven for about 10-12 minutes, until golden in colour. Watch carefully so as not to burn. When walnuts are toasted remove from oven and cool for a few minutes. Dump walnuts into food processor and process until just finely ground, no more. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, 1 cup oats, cinnamon, and Sucanat (or brown sugar). Now add the dry ingredients to the food processor and process for about 20-30 seconds until mixed. In a small bowl add the coconut oil and microwave for 20 seconds to soften (if necessary). In the same bowl, stir in the maple syrup, almond milk, and vanilla, and pour into food processor. Process until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Remove bowl from processor and dump contents into a large bowl. Mix in the remaining 1 cup of oats by stirring or with hands. Fold in the 2/3 cup of raisins. Take about 2 tbsp of dough, make a ball, and then flatten with fingers. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat. Bake for 10 minutes at 350F and no longer. Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes before placing onto a cooling rack for 10-15 minutes. Makes about 16 large cookies.

This was my first time baking with Kamut flour!

20100911-IMG_2843

Kamut (pronounced ka-moot) is an ancient whole grain cultivated by the Egyptians in 8,000 B.C.

Like spelt, it may be a healthy alternative for people who are sensitive to wheat products. The benefit of Kamut over spelt flour is that Kamut is much lighter than spelt and won’t weigh the baked goods down. I have been excited to try it out ever since my friend Heather told me about it!

I bought some white Kamut flour and some whole grain Kamut flour. I started with the white Kamut flour first to ‘test the waters’.

After grinding the toasted walnuts and then processing with the dry ingredients…

20100911-IMG_2840

Next, I processed in the wet ingredients and then folded in the oats and raisins…

20100911-IMG_2841

=> the most delicious & rich & buttery cookie dough in the world.

Baking for just 10 minutes (not a second longer!) at 350F.

Damn.

20100911-IMG_2885

The result was the most delicious oatmeal raisin cookie I think I have ever tasted. The toasted walnuts were magnificent and I am so glad I toasted them. The recipe is slightly ‘fussy’ but well worth the effort and it still didn’t take longer than about 35-40 minutes or so.

20100911-IMG_2861

I have a feeling my customer’s kids will love these cookies.

Eric was silent for a while as he ate one and his eyes went into a far off daze. After snapping him out of it, he said, ‘These are incredible…mmmm…..’ and then he went back into a daze as he ate them.

He hasn’t been the same since.

I’m going to give my customer this batch on the house so he can test them out and see how they all like them.

20100911-IMG_2878

I also made some mini cookies- just 1 inch in diameter (but they look much bigger in this deceiving picture!)

20100911-IMG_2896

Mini cookies are fun for lunches when you want just a little something sweet.

Or you can go big or go home. ;)

20100911-IMG_2882

Food for thought: If you could have one recipe made healthier and/or vegan what would it be?

I think a healthier version of basic chocolate chip cookies would make me happy! The recipes I use always have shortening or tons of butter in them.

Vegan gingersnap cookies would be great! But they have to be chewy. ;)

I agree about the chewy factor!

For vegan gingersnaps, I heartily recommend the Sparkled Ginger Cookies from Vegan with a Vengeance. They are absolutely hands down amazing. I bake mine so they come out a little crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside, full of wonderful ginger flavor and not too sweet.

These look amazing! You have been on a roll with cookie recipes lately! I made your pb chocolate chip ones yesterday and they were some of the best cookies I have ever had, soft, chewy, perfectly sweet and I LOVED the spelt flour in them, it made them so nice and hearty tasting. My boyfriend adored them too and he can be hard to please with ‘healthy’ baked goods.

I can’t wait to make these!

15 Martha September 11, 2010

Those look awesome. If I could have one recipe veganized/healthified it would be butter chicken. Everything about BC is horrible for you/filled with animal products… but it’s AH-MAZE-ING! Angela, you should totally check out the Toronto Vegetarian Food Fair this weekend- I hit it up today and it was pretty cool… Demos and samples from lots of Canadian veggie food companies (Manitoba Hemp, The SImply Bar) and Vita-Mix was there…

This is a bit late, but I just ended up on this page (loving this site and the many other yummies it’s given me!)

Can seriously vouch for the roux-based Vegan Pound Cake at http://www.veganricha.com/2014/02/mini-vanilla-pound-cake-loafs-vegan-soy.html — it was the only soy-free one I could find (semi-easily), and I’ve now had fantastic results with the vanilla version and the lemon variation she gives… though I’d bump up the lemon zest if you like things very lemony.

Of course, if Angela posts one here I’m going to make that too :-)

Thanks for the info about Kamut flour! I “veganized” my pumpkin bread recipe the other day and tried it with oat and rye flour, but the batter wasn’t cooking well without the gluten. The cake wasn’t rising and it wasn’t sticking together and was very dense (looked like manna bread). When I made it with the wheat flour, it was perfect! Nice and bready. Just like the original recipe. I can eat gluten, but have a hard time with wheat flour. Do you think spelt or kamut flour would work? Let me know!

I would like to have a healthy, veganized recipe for Egg Custard Pie. It is probably not possible. BTW, I’ve been reading your blog for awhile now and am totally impressed with your recipes. You are an inspiration to me and it has really helped me to read about your struggles with binging and weight. I do have a question about maple syrup, agave nectar, brown rice syrup, etc. I am trying to watch my calorie intake and these products are so high in calories that it really eats into my calorie budget. I am really trying to stay away from fake sugars. Many of your recipes call for one of these syrups and I am wondering if you eat these in moderation or if (because you are so active) that you don’t have to worry about it? Thank you so much for this blog!

Biscuits and gravy. Ever since moving to the south, that’s all I crave but can’t have! I’ve perused online recipes but none appeal to me. Most vegan recipes have a dark gravy, and I so want the white, creamy one I always crave.

Reply

71 Nikita September 12, 2010

I learned to make a vegan white gravy for my husband who is obsessed with the stuff. I had never had or wanted to try traditional “breakfast gravy” because the sausage was a turn off but he definitely approves of the stuff I make and requests it frequently! (I like it also but don’t have a good point of reference.)
All you need to do is brown some veg sausage in about a Tbsp. oil, crumbling it as it cooks. I usually add minced onion also. Whisk 1/4 c. flour with 3 cups nondairy milk (I use soy, but I imagine almond would be great) in a separate bowl and add to the pan along with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to boil, then cover, reduce heat, and simmer until thick. Serve over split biscuits! I have the best luck when I make this in a wok! Maybe a more even heat?

Ijust made these cookies and they are absolute heaven! They’re chewy yet crunchy and taste like the very unhealthy cookies you could pick up from the bakery. The only problem I have with these cookies is that they are falling apart! Most of them, when cooled, arent holding together as a cookie. Any ideas for the next batch?

Reply

105 Angela (Oh She Glows) June 19, 2012

Hey Sonya, I’m glad you enjoy them but sorry to hear they are crumbly! Did you make any modifications to the recipe at all? I will have to revisit this recipe and test it out again. Thanks for letting me know!

Reply

106 Sonya June 20, 2012

Ignore me! I guess they spread out a little more than I would have liked in the oven, creating a thinner cookie.I was too excited so I had to try them while they were still warm and that’s when they would fall apart. However, After letting them cool completely, they were fine! Your recipe is wonderful and I will be making them again! :)

So, I’m transitioning to veganism, and was a little weary of getting rid of eggs and dairy. This cookie is AMAZING. I stayed up at 2am this morning making it (I tweaked it a bit, used soy instead of almond milk, honey instead of maple syrup, and toasted almonds instead of walnuts — working off of what I had in the kitchen). But this is SO good. :)

My husband had a heart attack a few months ago and since then we have been looking for tasty things to eat that are good for his heart. He is not eating dairy or oils. So this recipe I think will be a great thing that we can try. I will use applesauce instead of the oil so I hope it turns out well. It worked great in the stuffed mushrooms I made. Absolutely delicious.
Thanks for the great recipe.

I have to admit, I was a little dubious when I saw the resulting dough. It was sticky and thick.

One question–what do you think the calories are per cookie? I assume it would be higher than a normal cookie since there is a nut base.

Reply

128 veena December 14, 2012

Hi Angela.. I need some advice.
I was thrilled to find this recipe and I had all the ingredients EXCEPT for
-flour I used spelt flour as I could not find kamut flour
-used organic canola oil instead of coconut oil

When I made the wet dought, it turned out to be way too sticky and I am wondering why. I could not roll them into balls in my hand and ended up wetting my hands SLIGHTLY to rool and then used a spatula/ladle to press and flatten the cookies onto the wax paper. WHen I took them out after 10 minutes EXACTLY and cooled them, the cookies woul dnot release from the wax paper and were gooey underneath (as though they needed moer time in the oven). I now realize the cookies became too thin as well, but I am wondering why I had the gooey-ness problem with the dough and the ‘not releasing from the wax paper’ syndrome!
Tastewise – they are INCREDIBLE.. I have halves and pieces from trying to get them out.. :-)

Reply

129 Angela (Oh She Glows) December 17, 2012

Hey Veena! My guess is that it was due to the spelt flour. Spelt tends to produce very wet doughs so you usually need to increase the flour amount by a couple tablespoons per cup. Im glad you still enjoyed the flavour anyway!

Reply

130 veena December 17, 2012

thanks so much for your reply Angela! I will add more flour next time if I use spelt again. AND my husband thinks it might have been the canola oil substitution as well (instead of coconut oil).
I do have whole wheat flour always at home, so maybe I will use that instead of kamut..

I thought they were glorious, but I found they crumbled and fell apart.
I didnt use the 1/2 cup of maple syrup [way too much sweetness already] is that why they were so crumbly and fragile? I wound up adding water to the dry mixture before baking as well to keep all the stuff together.

I used sunflower seeds in place of walnuts, 1/2 cup of oats and 1 1/2 cup of puffed rice cereal. I was also fairly liberal with the raisins. I looove raisins. And I used spelt flour.

My cookies were crisp around the edges and chewy in the middle. Oh, and I made them huge…saves me getting up to go back to the kitchen so many times :P

Hello,

I love your recipes and have used many. The one thing that I seem to need is a good way to print the recipe without getting all the comments along with it. I hate to waste all that paper. Maybe I missed the button for print if there is one, but sites with this are much more user friendly. I love the pictures though, just don’t really need them all for the recipe. A small little thumbnail photo would be good enough. Anyway, just a thought.
Thanks again for all your hard work. Keep up the good work.

For the no-nut crowd: We have that situation in my house. I swapped the walnuts for 3/4 of a cup of ground flax (omega-3 is swappable, right?), and the almond milk for applesauce (because of course somebody had just polished off the rice milk and couldn’t leave two measly tablespoons), and I played with the flour a bit to eyeball the consistency in Angela’s photos. Results: the batter was delicious (and this could easily become a no-bake thing in my impatient world), and the cookies baked up (9 minutes instead of 10), but of course they are more dense. But for something tasty, vegan and won’t cause an allergic reaction, I call it a win the first time out.
