My only regret is not trying this recipe sooner because both my husband and I agree that these cookies ARE the best oatmeal raisin cookies that we've had!  My husband took one bite and said, "These taste too good to be vegan!"  This recipe gets 5 huge stars!  I found this recipe on Twitter and it's from the Vegan Lyfe blog.  These cookies were easy to make and it used basic ingredients.  They were perfectly soft, slightly chewy, and crispy around the edges...that's my idea of the perfect cookie!  These cookies are a MUST make if you love oatmeal raisin cookies! 

What I Did Differently:

The recipe called for 18 cookies but I made my cookies a little bit smaller and made 24.  I baked the cookies for 10 minutes and they came out perfect! 

Overall Thoughts:

I will be making these cookies again!  I don't think I'll have a choice because I have a feeling that my husband will be asking me for these often!  These cookies go on my favorite list!

Oh.  My.  Goodness.  Hands down, these are the best chocolate chip cookies everrrr!!!!!  This recipe definitely gets 5 big stars and they are bound to fool ANY non-vegan!  I got this recipe from Amy at
The Comforting Vegan and I found the recipe through Pinterest.  I opted to add the 1 cup of walnuts for the added omega-3 benefits!  I recommend making a double batch because these cookies will not last long at all!  So, I do warn you that they are very addicting but so worth it!  If you love chocolate chip cookies then YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS RECIPE!  It will knock your socks off!

Things I Did Differently

I didn't make a change to this recipe but I do want to note that I used the Ener-G Egg Replacer for my "eggs".  I just followed the directions on the back of the box.

Overall Thoughts
I'm in love with these cookies and I will be making these again!  I'll be working on trying to win over the non-vegans with this recipe...and I won't even tell them that they're vegan until they try them  first :)

I give this recipe 5 stars!  These turned out amazing and I was impressed!  This recipe is from Erin at
Texanarian Cooking and I found this recipe on Pinterest.  They have no grain, no eggs, no dairy, no oil, and no butter!  These really fooled my husband!  It is such a simple recipe and they were extremely easy to make.  The odd thing is that they are made out of chick peas!  Wait, did I really just say chick peas?!?!  Yep, I sure did and the funny thing is that you wouldn't even be able to tell unless I told you!  These cookies really pack a punch in the protein department and they are extremely filling.  Two of these cookies and I can almost guarantee you'll be

I'm not usually a grain-free person but this recipe was so out there that I needed to try it and I'm really glad that I
did!  My husband likes his warmed up a bit before eating but I actually like mine room temperature.  Funny thing is that Erin mentions how she really doesn't like them cold!  I guess it's all about personal preference but I still thought they were good!  
Things I did Different
Erin mentions that this isn't the type of recipe to do all sorts of variations with so I stuck with the recipe.  The only variation I did make was using agave nectar instead of honey to make it vegan.  She does mention that this is a variation that can be done with success.  The only thing
that it changed was the color of the cookies.  They turned out slightly darker than hers but they're still amazing!

Overall Thoughts
I will definitely make these again!  These would be great as a mid-day snack when an extra boost of energy is needed!  They're packed full of protein, healthier than most cookies, and sweet!
