I have sampled my share of vegan cookies over the years and I have to say that most of the ones bought in stores tend to be a little heavy and doughey, until I discovered these little jewels. Light and cripsy on the outside and tender in the middle. Not too sweet, just the right amount of fat. They remind me of Anzacs, those Australian cookies but less sweet. Like all good things, one or two does the trick. 

1 cup of quick oatmeal
1/2 cup pastry flour
1/2  tsp baking powder
1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut powder
1/3 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of oil
2 Tb soy milk
1/2 cup raisin
1 tsp cinamon
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp anis seeds (optional)

  1. Mix all dry ingredients together, then add the wet ones.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Make little mounds and flatten them.
  4. Bake at 390F for 10-12 minutes until they are lightly browned.

I usually double the recipe because they never last very long.
Enjoy and share!


As a vegan chef, cooking instructor and food consultant, I am blessed to share my passion for international flavors, a compassionate world, optimal health and healing. You can't have one without the others because they are all interconnected. My culinary journey started in the South of France where I was born, then took me through Europe, onto America, then Asia and South America. I grew up eating delicious rich food my grandmother made (think creamy white and wine sauces) and fresh Mediterranean dishes my mother prepared. My family was by no mean vegetarian or vegan but we weren’t big meat eaters either. This being said, I must confess that I have had my fair share of strange things being served as food as I grew up! But I soon came to realize that it was the sauces, the marinade that tasted so good and that they could have just as well been poured over bread or tofu and it would have been just as good. You know how certain songs bring back a memory of where you were and who you were with when you heard them? Well, I seem to have a memory of food attached to pretty much every place and profound moment I have experienced in my life. It was the way love was shared and cherished all through my life so I am continuing the tradition! But the love is even more healing when there is no pain and sufferings attached to it. Be vegan, it is good for your health and the only sustainable diet for the planet.
