It is Day 4 of Vegan MoFo III, the third year running of the Vegan Month of Food.
These are Jae Steele’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Rejoice friends, for Jae has kindly posted the recipe on her blog, here. These will also be in the upcoming Ripe From Around Here. You should make them. Trust me.
I think these are the best cookies I have ever had – they’re certainly the best oatmeal cookies I’ve ever had. No contest.
And, they’re filled with exceedingly good things. No refined sugar, for example – instead, these little tasties (or big tasties, depending on what you’re into) are sweetened with pure organic maple syrup. I had to stop myself from eating the batter raw, it was that good (that would be a no-no, since I am endeavoring to be a good recipe tester and must fight such carnal urges in favour of measuring yields accurately, etc). But it tasted like praline which makes it kind of irresistible.
Oh, and they’re exceedingly good baked, too. It’s troublesome really.
There is more out there for your to see – just search for Vegan MoFo and it shall all be laid out before you.
