About this recipe: A soft and delicious oatmeal cookie recipe that is dairy free. It is a recipe developed to use vegetable oil instead of solid fats, such as butter or margarine. Everyone will enjoy these!
My cookies came out quite dry, and I didn't like the unusual (for me!) aftertaste of the bicarbonate of soda but everyone else liked them and they were also very easy to make! - 19 Feb 2012
Hi, would it be ok to use Sunflower oil instead of Rapeseed oil? - 11 Aug 2014
I was afraid to try this new recipe especially since I dumped in a pricey amount of walnuts and standard and mini chocolate chips, but they came out GREAT! Since I am admittedly a sugar fiend, I found the cookies to be a little less sweet than I would like so I added about 1/2 cup of brown sugar for a total of 1 1/2 cups. The cookies received excellent reviews from the family both before and after the sugar adjustment, though. The exact quote from a grateful taste-tester was, "You outdid yourself this time." Since canola is one of the wiser choices in terms of fats, and walnuts also reside in the relatively benign family of fats alongside canola (let's not mention the chocolate chips I added, though) I recommend this delicious oatmeal cookie to everyone. - 21 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
