When I was born we lived in a trailer park called Cadillac Estates that is mostly burned down now.  Today I am a vegetarian living in Los Angeles learning how to love vegetables.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Vegan Cardamom spiced Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This past Sunday my bell choir had a special performance and all the ringers baked for the guests of the show. I know we have some vegans, so I thought this recipe would be perfect!

I miss having a Potbelly sandwich shop out here in LA so badly, so sometimes I make this recipe using to take me back to Chicago in an instant when I am feeling homesick!

This recipe is soft and chewy and doesn't have any of those pesky raisins in them to ruin the entire batch.


2/3 cup sugar

2/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup margarine (I like Earth Balance) softened

1/2 cup vegetable shortening

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp cardamom

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup + 2 Tbs water

3 cups quick cooking oats

1 1/2 cup flour

2 cups chocolate chips (Guittard is vegan)


1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees F

2. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cardamom, and cinnamon in a medium size bowl. Add quick cooking oats (Old fashioned oats will also work if you don't have quick oats on hand)

3. In a large bowl mix with a wooden spoon by hand sugar, brown sugar, margarine, shortening, and water.

4. in 2 to 3 additions add dry ingredients to large bowl. Add chocolate chips until just combined.

5. Use a cookie scoop to place cookies on ungreased baking sheet. Gently push down on cookies for a more flat and round cookie.

6. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove from baking sheet after 2-3 minutes to cool entirely.
