Crispy and crumbly on the outside, rich and decadent on the inside: the perfect vegan peanut butter coconut cookies to bring you back to the days of Chick-o-sticks and your grandma’s baking.



dry ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups quick oats
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • ½ cup almond meal
  • 1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt

wet ingredients

  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup natural, unsalted peanut butter
  • ½ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 flax eggs: 2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons warm water, stirred together and left to set for 5 mins
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients.
  4. Add the dry mixture to wet mixture. Use a rubber spatula to thoroughly fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  5. Scoop 2 tablespoon-sized cookie dough balls onto the cookie sheet, spaced evenly apart. You should be able to fit 8-12 cookies onto the sheet, depending on the size of sheet you’re using.
  6. Press cookie dough balls down slightly. Cookies will not spread while baking.
  7. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Check for doneness by gently lifting one cookie with a fork. If the cookie is crispy and a caramel color on the bottom, it’s done. These cookies will be very soft when they’re done.
  8. Cool on the cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes, this will allow the cookie bottoms to harden up a bit. Then, if you prefer, you can move these cookies to a cooling rack to finish completely cooling.


Store in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks. Enjoy!
