Recipe by SugarP

This cookie was inspired by a vegan cookie that I would get at a farmers market on weekends. The cookies were HUGE, delicious, and only $2.50!

These are really good! They smell like doughnuts while cooking. yum! I made a few changes in order to make them healthier:

1. I omitted the walnuts, but placed a pecan piece on each cookie before placing in oven.
2. I omitted the butter, and used 1/8 cup grapeseed oil.
3. I used 1 cup quick oats and 1/2 cup rolled oats.
4. Instead of maple syrup (which I'm sure would have been great, but I was out), I used honey and increased the amount to 1/4 cup.
5. Since there was no sugar in the recipe, I added 1/2 cup brown sugar.

Really good, healthy cookies.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add the egg, maple syrup and vanilla.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well blended.
  4. Drop the dough into 1/4 (or 1/3!) cup mounds about 3" apart on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes, or until golden. Check after 10 minutes to avoid overbaking!
  5. Use a spatula to transfer slightly cooled cookies to a rack or plate.
