Why Make These Vegan Cookies Sometimes you just want a cookie for breakfast. A cookie or two to enjoy with your morning coffee or tea. A cookie that you feel good about eating. These roasted strawberry oatmeal cookies ARE those cookies. Want to try something new? Challenge what you know about baking! Instead of always relying on butter and eggs, eliminate dairy and animal based products. See what happens! You’ll end up with Ingredients and Replacements Standard cookies are made by creaming together butter and sugar. Eggs are added in, followed by flour. What do we use in place of butter and eggs? Butter is easy- simply sub in coconut oil. How do you replace eggs in vegan baking? This is where things get tricky. Eggs serve many purposes. They act as a binder or emulsifier thanks to the lecithin in egg yolks. Whipped egg whites add volume and protein. There are several plant-based options for egg replacements depending on it’s purpose in the recipe: mashed banana unsweetened applesauce ground flaxseeds chia seeds silken tofu For this cookie recipe, I used a combination of applesauce and ground flaxseed. Mix Cookie Dough By Hand Flour, baking soda, and spices get mixed in a large bowl. The wet ingredients (coconut oil, coconut sugar, applesauce, flaxseed, and vanilla) get mixed in another. The wet ingredients are mixed with the dry. Rolled oats, roasted strawberries, and sliced almonds are folded in. And done! (This is the kind of cookie dough you can safely eat raw!) The cookie dough batter is portioned out into 1/4 cup scoops. Using your hands, mold the dough into hamburger like patties. These strawberry oatmeal cookies will bake up nice and golden brown. They’re soft and chewy, with bits of crunch from the sliced almonds. (Feel free to sub in your favorite nuts.) Because the roasted strawberries still have moisture, it’s best to keep any leftovers in the fridge. Eat the cookies chilled, warmed to room temperature, or gently reheated in the microwave/toaster oven.
