This vegan recipe for spiced oatmeal cranberry cookies is thick and chewy, just the way oatmeal cookies should be, and, it has consistently been one of the most popular vegan cookie recipes here on About.com year after year. Vegans apparently love their oatmeal cranberry cookies, and you'll love this recipe, whether you're vegan or not! Unlike many vegan cookie recipes, this one doesn't require any egg replacer or egg substitute, so it's a good one to try if you're new to baking vegan (or just don't have any egg replacer on hand). 

Use a vegan margarine or a vegan butter substitute to make these oatmeal cookies vegan, egg-free and dairy-free. Betsy DiJulio of The Blooming Platter made these cookies and suggests adding chopped walnuts or pecans. Her verdict? These cookies are "the best"!
