Egg-Free Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies
No eggs? No problem. Even discerning eaters won't be able to taste the difference between these treats and traditional oatmeal cookies.This recipe adapted from Martha Stewart's Cookies.
- 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed meal
- 6 tablespoons warm water
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together oats, flour, wheat germ, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt, in a large bowl.
Put butter and sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together ground flaxseed and water; mix into butter mixture along with vanilla. Reduce speed to low. Add oat mixture; mix until just combined. Mix in raisins.
Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spacing 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly.
Bake until golden and just set, about 14 minutes, rotating halfway through. Let cool on sheets on wire racks 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks; let cool completely. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature up to 3 days.
