I am a vegan, and my aunt is gluten free. So I changed a few things in this recipe and made the best cookies either of us can really eat. She requests I make them every time she comes into town!! It's great.

this is the best recipe! I would recommend you try to make these. I just finished baking them and these are one of my most favourite cookie recipes. I used all organic ingredients and made a few substitutions: I used organic coconut palm sugar and reduced the amount the recipe called for(the dates provided most of the sweetness), used dates because i didn't have raisins, I used virgin coconut oil instead of vegan butter, coconut flour instead of oat bran.
The cookies spread slightly in the oven and I had only pressed down on them alittle because I didn't want them to be flat. I took them out after about 16 minutes and the colour was golden on the edges.
Wow, the substitutions I made produced the best cookies ever: slightly crispy on the outside and light on the inside with a subtle hint of coconut. I will definitely make again.
I had cookie dough left over, so placed tablespoon -sized dough balls on parchment paper in a container in the freezer so I can bake them at a later time.
Make these cookies. The original recipe without substitutions I'm sure would be amazing as well.

These were very yummy and didn't taste "vegany" at all. I think next time I try the recipe I may cut back on the sugar and replace at least half the margarine with unsweetened applesauce or pumpkin. I will let you know how they fair with those changes!

This is by far, the best Vegan cookie recipe I've come across. I have non-vegan friends asking me for the recipe all the time! Sometimes I substitute vegan chocolate chips for the raisins to make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies; both are absolutely wonderful! And I highly recommend the Joy of Vegan Baking Cookbook; so many delicious recipes that don't require obscure ingredients.
