I found this recipe on the back of a box of Cascadian Farm Maple Brown Sugar Granola. Veganized it and – voila! Delicious and quite popular cookies. I would definitely make these again, and experiment with a few other ingredients. The recipe calls for pecans, which I didn’t have at the time. I would love to try them with pecans, or even almonds or walnuts… yum!
1 cup vegan margarine
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 t vanilla extract
1/2 cup applesauce (equals 2 eggs)
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
4 cups Maple Brown Sugar granola
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup chopped pecans
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugars, vanilla extract, and applesauce on low speed until light and fluffy. Beat in flour, baking soda, and salt until well mixed.
- Stir in granola, raisins, and pecans. Spoon mixture onto greased cookie sheet in rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart.
- Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool for 1 minute on pan before removing to cooling rack.
