This is an Everything Oatmeal guiltfree cookie! You can edit this cookie to your preference. Add any chewy dried fruit like cranberries, raisins, blueberries. goji berries, or Chocolate chips. For a double chocolate version, add 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder to get a Chocolate Oatmeal chocolate chip cookie!
I usually add some almond slivers or chopped walnuts, to amp up the nutrition, so the cookies become an almost food bar.
I met up with some friends today for a baking session. We made a bunch of my Spiced Chocolate cake for all(which also featured on Huffington post here:), also made another version with sorghum and almond instead of oats and almond flour, and with a block of dark chocolate in the middle.. lava cake anyone! Baked up some Double Chocolate Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies(this recipe with chocolate chips and cocoa powder in the mix) and some Pistachio Cashew Almond cookies. And hopefully everyone found vegan baking simpler and funner! 🙂

In other great news, Greece bans Animal Circuses!, along with other countries like Peru and Bolivia. Amazing news for the animals forced to perform unnatural acts, under harsh conditions, constantly abused, life of fear, with little or no hope for a better life. Please choose human performances rather than animal acts.
