Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Prepare baking sheets with either parchment paper or silicone baking sheets (I really love these! Easy to clean, no waste. Definitely worth the investment)
In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the softened vegan margarine, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat until creamy.
Add the applesauce and vanilla. Beat until well combined.
Next, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.
Stir in the oats and mix until well combined.
Fold in the raisins just until incorporated.
Using a cookie or ice cream scoop, spoon onto the prepared baking sheets.
You can make them small (1 Tbl) or for a larger cookie, use a 2 Tbl scoop.
Bake for 8-10 minutes for smaller to medium-sized cookies, larger cookies may take longer to set. They should be golden brown on the bottom & lose their shine on top. Remember they will continue to set up as they cool. Do not overbake.
