Earth-Friendly Oatmeal Cookies: Sustainable and Delicious

Today we're making Earth-Friendly Oatmeal Cookies. It's a recipe close to my heart, combining sustainability with deliciousness.


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup raisins or nuts
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

MAGICAL Flavor Enhancement Tips:

  1. Honey Drizzle: For a natural sweet touch.
  2. Banana: Add a mashed ripe banana for extra moisture.
  3. Dark Chocolate Chips: For those who love a bit of chocolate.

Common Variations: Feel free to add pumpkin seeds, dried apricots, or even almond flakes for a personal twist!

Dietary Modifications:

  • Gluten-Free: Use gluten-free oats and flour.
  • Vegan: Replace the egg with a chia egg.
  • Nut-Free: Make sure all your add-ins are nut-free.


  1. Warming Up: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Let's create a warm environment for our cookies.
  2. Mixing Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, and brown sugar. It's like building a foundation for our cookies.
  3. Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together the oil, egg, and vanilla. These will bind our cookies with love and flavor.
  4. Combining Everything: Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Fold in your chosen enhancements or variations.
  5. Scoop and Bake: Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until they're golden and aromatic.
  6. Cooling and Sharing: Let them cool on a rack before serving. Sharing is caring!

Practical Kitchen Tips:

  • Consistent Scoops: Use an ice cream scoop for uniform cookies.
  • Don’t Overmix: Gently fold the ingredients for a perfect texture.
  • Space Out: Leave room between cookies on the baking sheet.

Storing Your Cookies: An airtight container will keep them fresh and delicious.
