Amandas Steak Cookies (oatmeal Raisin-cranberry) RecipeTagged in Vegetarian
Mix the first 4 ingredients together and set
aside, covered. This will allow the dried fruit
to rehydrate somewhat before baking, so they
don't turn into little fruit-flavored rocks.
Cream together the rest of the applesauce and
vegan sugars (at least, as well as these items can be
creamed). Add flour, salt, cinnamon and soda to
vegan sugar mixture. Mix well. Blend in raisin-
cranberry mixture, oatmeal, and wheat germ (you
can add 3/4 C chopped nuts, if you like them).
Dough should be fairly stiff--if it's too wet,
add a bit more flour and possibly a pinch of
baking powder, depending on your altitude. Drop
by heaping teaspoon onto lightly greased cookie
sheet. Bake at 350 for approx. 12-15 m (check
them often--mine had to bake for almost 30
because I made them too big and too wet the first
time), or until they appear fluffy. You might
want to make a test batch, then take one out and
tear it open to see if it is too doughy inside
before you pronounce them done. If they don't
seem to be rising, add a pinch more baking powder.
This is an adapted Oatmeal Raisin cookie recipe
that I made up this Christmas. I am a
vegetarian, but my family is not, so I wanted at
least one cookie that I could eat. They came out
incredibly chewy and filling, and my Mom said
they would make you feel as if you had just eaten
a steak--hence the name. Decrease the vegan sugars if
you think they might be too sweet, or if you
can't find unsweetened applesauce. I also
thought about substituting peanut butter for some
of the applesauce to make them less fluffy (as
noted above), but I haven't tried it yet. My
family wasn't all that keen on these, but my
vegan friend loved them.
- 6 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce (possibly substitute 3 tablespoon peanut butter for 3 tablespoon of applesauce)
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup dried cranberries (or whatever chopped dried fruit you like)

- 3/4 cup vegan brown sugar

- depending on the strength of your sweet tooth)

- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
