Mmmm. . . hot off the cookie press. These cookies combine the chewiness of oatmeal, the crunch of bran and the romance of vanilla! All without the labour of our feathered (albeit fowl) friends.
1 C vegan shortening - I loves me some Earth Balance!
1C brown sugar
2 tsp high-quality vanilla extract
1tsp baking soda dissolved in
1/4C boiling water
1 1/2 C oatmeal
1/2 C bran of your choice, I used wheat
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 375 F. Cream shortening, sugar and vanilla. Beat in soda mixture. Add oatmeal & bran, making sure to mix thoroughly. Add flour and salt, mixing completely.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls (I use a small Pampered Chef ice-cream scoop) onto an ungreased baking stone and press with a fork dipped in water. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the tops have turned golden. Makes 27 generous cookies.
