1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp oil
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 Tbsp warm water
1 cup margarine
2 1/3 cups regular or quick-cooking oats
1 12 oz chocolate chips (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 °F. Lightly grease baking sheets.

Cream margarine and sugar together. Add vanilla, oil, and water. Beat well.

In a separate bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to margarine and sugar mixture, and stir all well.

Add chocolate chips (or 1 1/2 cups raisins, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp nutmeg if you prefer).

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared pans. Bake 10-12 minutes until edges are brown. Transfer to wire rack to cool.



For oatmeal raisin cookies, add 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and 1 1/2 cup raisins instead of chocolate chips.

Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.

Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.
