Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


My love for cookies is strong. Baking is a major stress reliever for me and sometimes you just need to indulge, am I right?


After a series of electrical issues this past weekend, causing us to have to get creative with our refrigerator storage options, we needed a moment to breathe and refresh. Sometimes moving the stress outside of your body, helps you move through the entire stress response cycle. Queue baking for me...


I was never fond of oatmeal raisin cookies, until Greg's mother introduced us to her amazing recipe. ⁠We haven't had any since transitioning into a vegan diet, and finally attempted them. I am thrilled to announce that we totally nailed it! ⁠

I can confidently assure you these taste better than any other oatmeal raisin cookie you have ever tasted. Chocolate chip cookies still hold a place in my heart, but these are so good that we will definitely be making these regularly now as well!⁠
