Vegan Oatmeal Coconut Chip Cookies

I took a bunch of vegan oatmeal cookie recipes I found online and made up this one -- I added in coconut to it and I was going to add in walnuts and totally forgot!  They came out really good and hearty!

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup canola oil
2 tbsp. vanilla soy milk (or whatever non-dairy milk you'd like)
1 1/3 cup sugar
2 - "flax" eggs  (or egg sub. for 2 eggs) (2 1/2 tbsp. of flaxseed meal + 3 tbsp. water = 1 egg - mixed well)
2 1/2 cups of quick oats
2 tbsp. of vanilla
vegan chocolate chips (as much as you'd like)
shredded coconut (optional)
walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix flour, baking soda & salt together - Set aside.  In a separate bowl mix sugar & wet ingredients together.  Slowly add dry ingredients into wet until mixed well.  Now add oats into mixture.  Add in chips, coconut, etc.

On parchment-lined baking sheet bake cookies for about 15-25 minutes - be very careful when taking them off of baking sheet as they are very gentle.  Let cool down completely before removing them.

  1. I don't buy canola oil because of the health risks (albeit pretty minor in low quantities). So can instead of canola, what oil would you recommend (I have virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, flax oil, & sunflower oil). As always, thx for your recommendations & recipes, Marci. **HUGS**
