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.
