Description

Lightly sweetened chewy Vegan Oatmeal Cookies with Chai Soaked Raisins.  Irresistible and delicious!


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup raisins or currants
  • 1 chai tea bag
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax seeds mixed with 2 1/2 tablespoons water) or use 1 regular egg
  • 1 cup, 125 grams, flour
  • 1 1/2 cup quick or medium rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil or vegan butter or regular unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sugar (add another 1/4 cup if you like a sweeter cookie)

Instructions

  1. Steep tea in hot water for 5 minutes, add raisins and set aside. (Do this several hours ahead or overnight for more flavor absorption.)
  2. Mix together flour, oats, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and sea salt.  Set aside.
  3. Cream together softened coconut oil, molasses, vanilla, sugar, and flax egg.
  4. Mix in oat and flour mixture.
  5. Drain the liquid off of the raisins and mix them into the dough.
  6. Scoop out 1-ounce cookies onto a tray and bake at 350F for 11-13 minutes.

Notes

Flax egg: mix together 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds and  2.5 tablespoons water.

Try different flavors of tea- earl grey, ginger, rooibos are nice.

For a softer texture use quick cooking oats.  For a little extra chewiness use medium oats.

They hold well for 4 days in an air tight container on the counter.  They also freeze great.
