These cookies are based on my friend Bart’s mother’s famous Ranger cookie recipe. I had never heard of them before but apparently Ranger cookies have been around since the 1920s. Some people call them Cowboy cookies. We call them yummy!
makes 30 cookies using a 3 tablespoon ice cream scooper
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 cups oats
2 cups brown rice cereal
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup vegan cane sugar
1 cup vegan brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sunflower oil
1/2 cup vegan milk (oat or almond)
2 flax eggs (1 flax egg = 1 tablespoons ground flax + 3 tablespoons water)
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips, optional
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
Preheat oven to 350. Make the flax eggs and set aside. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Sift the flour into a big mixing bowl. Add the oats, cereal, coconut, sugars, baking soda and powder, vanilla powder and salt. Mix well.
Add the sunflower oil, milk and flax eggs. Mix until it comes together.
Using an ice cream scooper, scoop the batter onto the baking sheets. Give the cookies plenty of room because they will spread out. Bake for 18 to 20minutes. Let them cool completely. Enjoy!
