Welcome to my blog.

Good morning everybody :)

For my first post I wanted to share with you all a very yummy Oatmeal Cookie Recipe that I loved as a child, and last night I "veganised" them and they are disappearing very quickly! 
So here it is, enjoy :)

PS I used the oven method as it is a lot quicker, and less messy in the long run.

SJ's Oatmeal Cookies

  • 125g vegan margarine
  • ½ cup raw sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar/coconut palm sugar
  • Equivalent of 1 egg, No-Egg, egg re-placer, such as Orgran brand
  • ½ tsp Dutch spice or mixed spice (cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg)
  • 1 cup plain flour, you could use plain wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats, NOT microwave quick oats

Microwave Method:
  1. Cream margarine and sugars until light and fluffy, add egg re-placer and mix well.
  2. Fold in remaining ingredients.
  3. Place teaspoons of mixture onto large greased microwave safe plate (about 6 at a time). Cook on med high for 1 ¼ - 1 ½ minutes depending on microwave.
  4. Allow to cool slightly on plate before removing onto cooling rack.
  5. Repeat process until all mixture is cooked.

Oven Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 170oC.
  2. Cream margarine and sugars until light and fluffy, add egg re-placer and mix well.
  3. Fold in remaining ingredients.
  4. Grease a baking tray with a thin layer of cooking spray.
  5. Roll teaspoons or so of mixture into balls, and squish slightly in your palms, place on tray, ensure there is plenty of room for the cookies to spread.
  6. Bake for about 12 minutes, depending on size, I make them about a dessert spoon size.
  7. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes prior to transferring onto a wire cooling rack.
  8. ENJOY, a glass of soy milk helps cut down the sweetness (:
