Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another sorta vegan dessert!  These cookies came out so beautifully, and honestly, were the product of just what I had on hand thrown together (a perfect way to get rid of the small amounts of sugars left in the pantry).

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Takes 1 hour
Makes 26 cookies

1/2 cup almond oil
1/4 cup Earth Balance vegan spread
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk (lactose free)
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups chocolate chips
3 cups rolled or quick cooking oatmeal

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper (or aluminum foil).

Beat together the sugars and almond oil.  Then add Earth Balance and beat until thoroughly combined.  Add vanilla and milk and stir until smooth.  Add baking soda, cinnamon and salt, and stir until well-combined.  Add flour, stir.  Add oats, and stir.  Add chocolate chips and walnuts, and yes, stir until combined.

Using a 1/4 cup measure, spoon dough onto cookie sheets, about 8 per sheet.  Bake for 12 to 14 minutes (one sheet in the oven at a time), rotating half way.

Let cool (if you can!).
