Vegan Oatmeal cookies


Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Cookies are definitely my favourite thing to bake (and to eat)! Ever since my sister and I started baking them at the age of ten I have always preferred the taste of home made cookies. Obviously a little older now but still holding on to that nostalgic memory. I thought I would share my more recent, more grown up and most definitely more healthier version of my homemade cookie.

They are delicious yet substantial, so they fill your tummy up, satisfy you and kill that sugar craving at the same time.

These ones are especially amazing as they are completely vegan friendly, YAY.

Very easy to throw together and only take 8 minutes to bake…

Right I know these don’t look that appetising but TRUST ME they are divine.

The oats combined with the spices give them the most amazing flavour.

If you wanted to make them look prettier you could drizzle some vegan chocolate on top, I have tried that as well and it is so yummy!

If you don’t eat them all in one go there are the perfect afternoon snack or evening sweet treat. Just keep them in the fridge in a air tight container.
