Another cookie recipe. (Always with the cookie recipes.)


They’re not fancy. They’re not made from the ingredient of the month. They’re not revolutionary. They ARE simple to make and a joy to eat. I present to you, without further comment...

Delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that happen to be vegan.


¼ cup unrefined coconut oil

¼ cup Earth Balance butter replacement spread

½ cup granulated (vegan) sugar

½ cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 Tbs soy milk

1 cup unbleached flour

1 cup oats

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

¾ cup (vegan) chocolate chips

¼ cup finely chopped walnuts  


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Beat together coconut oil, Earth Balance, sugars, vanilla, and soy milk until smooth.

3. Add flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, combine until just mixed.

4. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.

5. Form cookies about 2” in diameter on cookie sheet (lined with parchment for easier clean-up and cookie removal). Dough will be crumbly, but will hold form when pressed together with clean fingers.

6. Bake for about 8 minutes, until just set.
