Eggless Oatmeal Cookies

Serving Suggestion:

You can serve these chewy oatmeal cookies just like that, or you can also enjoy them with a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of tea or coffee.

You can pack these cookies for lunchboxes or picnic baskets as well. And one more idea which is my personal favorite is to have these cookies along with a glass of milk as a substitute for my heavy breakfast.

Storage Suggestion:

Once completely cooled, store these chewy oatmeal cookies in an airtight container to retain their chewiness. They stay fresh for up to a week at room temperature.

Pro Tips for No Egg Oatmeal Cookies:

  1. Make sure the butter is softened to the right consistency for a smooth dough.
  2. Soak the raisins and cranberries before adding to the dough. This makes them juicier and plumper.
  3. If the raisins are fresh, and soft because you’ve just opened the packet, there’s no need to soak them. However, if the raisins have been in the fridge and they seem dry and hard (though still soft when you bite), then you should soak them.
  4. To soak raisins for eggless oatmeal cookies, simply put them in warm water for 10 minutes. After soaking, drain the water and pat the raisins dry with a kitchen towel or paper towel.
  5. To make the perfect chewy oatmeal cookies make sure not to overmix the dough, just bring it together so that you get soft and chewy cookies.

Why You Should Make this Recipe:

  1. These healthy Oatmeal cookies are quick, easy, and delicious
  2. Healthier than other cookies
  3. These cookies are packed with the goodness of raisins and cranberries
  4. These Chewy oatmeal cookies are a perfect snack for those unexpected guests or a family treat!

Basic Ingredients Used to Make this Recipe:

All-purpose flour: All-purpose flour is the key ingredient that provides desirable texture and structure in cookies. Today I used all-purpose flour but for a healthier twist, you can use whole wheat flour. But then the cookies made with whole wheat flour will make your cookies denser and give them a nuttier flavor.

Cinnamon: The addition of cinnamon to these healthy oatmeal cookies makes them taste warm and a little spicy. It goes well with the sweetness and makes the cookies taste more flavorful.

Baking Soda: Generally, I don’t prefer using baking soda in any of my recipes, but there are somewhere it becomes an essential ingredient and you cannot avoid it this Eggless oatmeal cookie is one of those. It becomes all the more important when you don’t have the option of adding eggs because you are a vegetarian like me. So in this recipe, baking soda helps your cookies rise and become light and fluffy. Without it, your cookies might be a bit flat and dense.

Unsalted Butter: Butter, especially unsalted butter at room temperature, enhances the flavor and softness of your cookies. When mixed with sugar, it helps the cookies rise by trapping air. In case, unsalted butter is not available, you can use coconut oil, ghee, or vegetable oil as substitutes. Just keep in mind that these alternatives might slightly change the texture and taste of your cookies due to their different fat and moisture contents.

Rolled Oats: Rolled oats make your cookies chewy and satisfying. They add fiber and nutrients for a healthy touch and give your cookies a nice texture and fuller feel.

Raising & Cranberries: Raisins and cranberries make your cookies sweet and tart and help keep them moist.
