A big THANK YOU to Quaker Oats for their delicious recipe on the back of their Oats container. I used to make this same recipe before allergies and it was delicious. I figured I’d try to change it around and make it allergy free (for us). This oatmeal raisin cookie recipe contains no dairy, no soy, no egg, and no nuts. We gobbled them up while they were still warm and had to stop ourselves at four cookies. Yes, they’re THAT good!

no dairy, no soy, no egg, no nuts
I followed the recipe on the container (shown below). But I made changes to it. I used Spectrum Organic Shortening in place of the butter, Ener-G Egg Replacer in place of the eggs, and added 1/2 cup of dried cranberries, and 1-3 large Enjoy Life Foods Mega Chunk Chocolate pieces (to each cookie) and I also switched out the flour and used King Arthur’s Gluten Free Flour Mix. They also had to cook for a lot longer than the recipe states.
