I am not vegan, but I created this recipe one night after realizing that I had not eggs or butter. I examined multiple different oatmeal cookie recipes and converted the finished product to exclude eggs and butter. I have made them for guests and potlucks multiple times since then, and they have always been a huge hit. (I always have to eat a few before I serve them, or I wont get to eat any! lol) They are also reasonably easy to mix by hand, which is a big plus for me, as all I do not own a mixer. (As much baking as I do, I really should invest in one.)

Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


    cups packed light brown sugar
    banana (mashed)
    cup + 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    tablespoon honey
    cup flour (whatever kind you prefer)
    teaspoon baking soda
    teaspoon salt
    teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 cups rolled oats
    cup raisins
    cup coconut


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the banana, vanilla and honey. Sift   together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the rolled oats, raisins, and coconut.
3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto unprepared cookie sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies start to brown. Remove from baking sheets immediately and cool on wire racks.

This looks really good!  Personally, I don't like banana and I can detect even the slightest hint of it in foods.

For a lot of recipes like this, I like to substitute an equal amount of pureed sweet potato, carrot or similar food for the banana.

Thanks for sharing the recipe!  I'm going to save it and make it soon.

These sound really yummy, even though they aren't really vegan because of the honey. Can the honey be subbed with agave nectar or maple syrup without compromising the cookie?  Smiley

Oh! I hadn't thought about the honey for some reason. I will try maple syrup next time I make them and post the results later,
