Oatmeal Cookie – Vegan Style (But You Would Not Know It!)

According to my daughter, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is one of the latest health food.  Like many health food fads,  I was not going to use it when I found out that it is pretty expensive!  However, when I saw it at Costco’s for £11.99 for  a 1.5 litre container, I thought I would give it a try.

My first experiment was with a Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe that I found.  Those cookies turned out to be very good.  Everyone who tried one commented on how good they were.   So, I thought I would try them in an Oatmeal Cookie.  Wow!  They are the best Oatmeal Cookie I have ever made!
