Fat Free Vegan Oatmeal Cookies

When we started eating vegan two years ago, probably the hardest thing for me to give up was the eggs and dairy. I also had some difficulties following the recommendations of our gurus John McDougall, Caldwell Esselstyn, and Jeff Novick regarding eliminating oil from the diet. How can you bake anything without no-stick cooking spray? For this cookie recipe, I had the brilliant idea to line the cookie sheets with parchment paper and, I’m happy to say, the parchment paper worked like a charm.

This recipe is based on the Oatmeal-Apple-Raisin Cookies recipe from The Pritikin Promise by Nathan Pritikin. The main changes I made were to substitute brown rice flour for the whole-wheat pastry flour and flaxseed gel for the 3 egg whites.

A tip about grating the apples: I grate as much as I can of the apple quarters directly into the mixing bowl and then eat or discard the bit of apple left inside the peel.
