Simple Flourless Oatmeal Cookies [Vegan]

I came up with this recipe last night when Adam and I were both craving something sweet. Unfortunatly, our kicthen was bare because it was the day before we go to the market, and we didn't want to go out. With a container of oats in the cabinet and frozen blueberries in the freezer, I created these super simple and yummy oatmeal cookies. They are free of both flour and animal products!

1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup non dairy butter (earthbalance)
1 Egg Replacer (or 1 whole egg)
1 t Vanilla extract
Blueberries or berry of your choice (how ever many you want)

Mix Egg replacer (or egg), melted butter and vanilla in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, mix oats, sugar and cocoa powder. Add liquid ingredients and berries to dry ingredients. Mix well with hands (messy but the best way). Place in fridge and let cool for 15-20 minutes (not necessary but really helpful). Preheat oven at 350. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and then flaten, place them on a wax paper lined baking sheet.

Bake for about 15 minutes. Allow to cool on sheet. And voila! Enjoy!

There are many variations you can do with this recipe. Adam enjoyed these cookies so much I made another batch tonight. I used cinnimon and honey (making it nonvegan) and some raw almonds. They were amazing!

  1. Trying them now! :)
    I liked the "raw" batter (I used pureed fruit as my egg substitute) so much that I thought about making them truffles.

    I'm going to add some coconut to the leftover batter and roll in coco powder.

    fingers crossed!
