Spiced Vegan Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

This vegan recipe for spiced oatmeal cranberry cookies is thick and chewy, just the way oatmeal cookies should be! Use a vegan margarine to make these oatmeal cookies vegan, egg-free and dairy-free. Betsy DiJulio of The Blooming Platter made these cookies and suggests adding chopped walnuts or pecans. Her verdict? These cookies are "the best"!

Great cookies to have everyday, Guest Morgan.nau

These cookies are so easy to make and are very healthy and delicious. I like to add a cup of walnuts and instead of soymilk use a small can of pumpkin. This gives my cookies added flavor and keeps them moist too. I also recommend using a little less than a cup, like 2/3 cup of dried cranberries if you add nuts to keep a good consistancy.
