How to Make Healthful Oatmeal Cookies Vegan


Okay, so we managed to remove the dairy no problem, with the applesauce and alternative milk, but that only solves a dilemma for our dairy-free qualification!

While the original recipe does has eggs and honey, you can substitute agave for the honey, and to substitute ONE egg, use 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed mixed with 3 tablespoons of water and mix well. Mix these together towards the beginning of preparation to be sure it has time to set up and thicken. 


Here are some favorites ingredient toppings to add in and mix up!

  • Dried cranberries
  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Coconut Flakes
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Chia Seeds
  • Walnuts
  • Slivered Almonds
  • Pecans
  • Dark chocolate chips
  • Raisins
  • Goji Berries

You can't feel bad about making these cookies since they're so healthful compared to other recipes! So go ahead and make a batch, and please share your creation and combinations with us!
