  • 1 c All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 c Vegan Margarine SOFTENED TO ROOM TEMPERATURE
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 c Unsweetened Applesauce OR 1 Tbl Ground Flax + 3 Tbl Water
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1-1/2 c Old Fashioned Oats
  • 3/4 c Raisins


  • Bring the vegan margarine to room temperature.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer (or you can mix by hand), add the room temperature margarine, sugar and brown sugar.  Beat for a few minutes to allow the sugar to dissolve a bit.
  • Add the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, applesauce (OR flax mixture if using instead of applesauce) and vanilla.  Beat until incorporated.
  • Add the oats and raisins and beat just a few times to distribute them, or you can fold them in by hand.
  • Use a small scoop, portion the cookie dough onto either parchment or a silicone baking mat.
  • Using the bottom of a glass sprayed with cooking spray, flatten the dough a bit. This will produce a more uniform cookie.  You may need to spray the glass occasionally to avoid sticking.
  • Bake for 7-8 minutes or until just golden on the edges.  Allow to cool on the cookie sheet until they firm up and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store in a covered container.
