Guest Blogger: VeganFling – Delicious Goji Oatmeal Cookies!

3 May

These crunchy cookies came out great! They remind me of eating granola… just more portable and there is chocolate involved.

Oatmeal Cookies with Goji Berries and Chocolate Chips
adapted from the clean eating mama

1/2 cup vegan butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 flax egg
(1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoon water, set in refrigerator for 15 minutes)
3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup dried goji berries
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used this brand)

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream the brown sugar and butter together in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Add vanilla and flax egg and cream for another minute. Add in the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Form small balls on a cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Let cool and serve!

This was my first time trying goji berries. They have a mild tangy taste and have a similar shape and chewy texture as raisins.

Happy Baking!
