Oats-so-good vegan cookies.

Well, it turns out that we couldn't get enough cookies while Bum was staying, so I just HAD to make more! This recipe is also a Martha rip-off, except a zillion times better! These are more crumbly and chunky then the thin 'n' chewy from the last post, I prefer this type of cookie. We took them up Arthurs Seat with a flask of coffee and it was amazing. The evening was clear and the sunset and views were outstanding. If you are in Edinburgh and the weather is good, I strongly recommed that you climb Arthurs seat, and while your at it, take these cookies!

Makes about 20 cookies
O.M.G. Oatmeal Cookies

155g Flour
1 tspn baking soda
1/2 tspn salt
250g vegan marge
2 tblspn golden syrup
2 eggs worth egg substitute
1+1/2 tspn Vanilla essence
200g porage oats

Now, this is the basic mix. It is up to you what else you put in and in what quantities. This mixture can take alot of extra ingredients. I went all out and added...

1+1/2 tspns cinnamon
1 tspn nutmeg
sesame seeds
chopped choc
small handful chopped:
dried cherries
dried apple
But just go with whatever you have around, or have them plain (bo-ring!).

Heat oven to 180.

2/ Cream all the wet ingredients.

3/ Stir in dry ingredients.

4/ Add your choice of extras and combine.

5/ Spoon balls of the mixture onto baking parchment (on a tray), bearing in mind the cookie won't spread out much, so give them a wee flatten with a spoon so they look like cookies.

6/ Sprinkle with some granulated sugar if you wish, then bake for 10-15 minutes.
