Low Fat Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

This recipe was found by my husband at Simple-Vegetarian-Recipes website. He wanted to find a cookie that was lowfat and delicious. This cookie was really yummy! Scrumptious! He added a little ginger seasoning too. A perfect fall cookie!

Here is a simple vegan oatmeal cookie recipe that is so delicious, you won't know they are low fat.

Prep time: 20 min; Total time: 45 min



  • 1 c. instant oats
  • 1.5 c. spelt flour or whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


  • 1/2 c. applesauce
  • 1/2 c. blackstrap molasses
  • 1/2 c. maple syrup, Grade B
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 c. raisins

Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir until "just mixed." Scoop dough onto a cookie sheet (about 2 tbsp per cookie) and bake at 350 F for 12-15 min.

Makes 20 cookies.

Per cookie: 77.5 calories, 0.5g fat, 2g fiber, 1.9g protein, 12.3% RDA iron, 4.5% RDA calcium

Add more spices! Try allspice, cloves, ground ginger, pumpkin pie spice, or cardamom. The first time you try them, start with only 1/4 tsp, then taste the cookie dough and add more if desired.

Use the vegan oatmeal cookie dough raw as a mix-in for cinnamon ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Frost your cookies. Combine powdered sugar, 1/4-1/2 tsp. vanilla (to taste), and a little bit of milk or soy milk to make the frosting. Then drizzle it on the tops of your cookies. If you want, add spices like cinnamon to your frosting.
