You cannot tell these are vegan. They are soft and chewy and very easy to make. You can vary the spices or leave them out. I used the flax substitute to make them vegan. Be sure your chocolate chips are vegan as well. I used ghiradelli chocolate chips. Regular sugar is not vegan so look for organic sugar.

Spiced Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch cloves (not pictured)
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg or flax egg (1Tb ground flax+3Tb water, mixed)
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup butter/earthbalance (room temp)
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream together sugars and butter.
Add in the egg (or flax egg) and vanilla
In a separate bowl, mix together your flours + seasonings (everything else but the chocolate chips and oats
Add flour mix to butter mix
Now add in Choc chips and oats
Now form the dough into small balls and bake in the oven on 350 for 8-10 minutes.
