I started producing cooking videos on weelicious almost 6 years ago, right from the site’s inception. I primarily did it as a way for parents to see how easy and fun it is to cook with their kids. Along the way, I made videos for a broad spectrum of diets, trying to cater to the varied tastes of my readers. However my goal has always been to make my creations appeal to everyone.
When one hears the terms gluten-free and vegan, they can often bring to mind the words flavorless, boring, or tasteless, but nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to these sweet gems.
Made with hearty oats, plump raisins (or chocolate chips, depending on your taste), and a touch of cinnamon for an extra burst of flavor, these Gluten-Free Vegan Oat Cookies make a wonderful addition to the lunchbox or as a little treat after school or dinner. But what I find makes them most interesting is how good they are given the many substitutions I use versus what goes in a traditional cookie. I use vegan butter in place of regular butter, flax seed mixed with water as an egg stand-in, and vegan chocolate chips or raisins. Fear not, just because they don’t have a lot of butter and eggs in them doesn’t mean that they’re void of taste. Whether you’re gluten intolerant, vegan, or just want a little sweet treat, these cookies deliver for everyone.
Watch this video to see just how simple they are to prepare.
I made these with my son last night. We used raisins inplace of choclate chips. I love how they kept their shape after they baked and how crunchy they are. I usualy use butter in baking but I used the Earth balance inplace for this recipe. Is that why they turned out crunchy on the outside? I will be making these again.
these look great Catherine!
Tis is the best recipe! My daughter is allergic to eggs and gluten and this is the best recipe I have come across. Simple ingredients in your pantry that turn into yummy cookies that don’t taste gluten free!
