Oatmeal has to be the healthiest comfort food ever. This simple oatmeal cookie recipe is perfect for weekday baking when you do not want to be in the kitchen for two hours but still want a yummy and delicious treat.
Simple Vegan Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 cup dairy-free, vegan butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups quick – cooking or old fashion oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup almond milk
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line two cookies sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, cream together vegan butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract with a wooden spoon.
In a separate medium size bowl, whisk together all purpose flour, old fashion oats, ground cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients using a wooden spoon. Add in almond milk, and continue to stir until well combined.
Scoop the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets about two tablespoons at a time. Leave about two inches between each cookie.
Bake the oatmeal cookies for about 10 minutes, turning half way through the baking time. When done, the cookies will be a pale tan color, but the bottom edge will be a golden brown.
