I love baking and eating vegan cookies, even though I am not vegan! My vegan cookies are so good, that you won’t even be able to tell they are vegan, which makes them just amazing cookies. I have so many vegan cookie recipes that I need to share more of on the blog. If there’s something you want to see, email me and tell me!
When I was eating my handful of dried cranberries today, like I do every morning, I thought of these cookies. This is an old recipe that I haven’t made them in so long, but they are so good! So, I thought I’d finally share the recipe here. These super soft and chewy oatmeal cookies are vegan, but you’d never be able to tell! You can easily swap out the oats and flour to make them gluten free too, if you need. Try substituting the cranberries for blueberries, raisins, or any other dried fruit you like.

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
