this easy healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies recipe yields chewy cookies with crispy edges and lots of chocolate chips!
What do you typically do to pass the time indoors? Growing up, all I thought you could do was: watch TV, read a book, watch TV, talk to yourself, play with dolls, and watch even more TV.
Then, sneak in a quick sesh of quietly going through the cabinets and whipping up a some crazy treat made with whatever I could find without my mom knowing. And trying not to light the house on fire while doing it.
As a much wiser (okay, fine… not really) adult, I’ve broadened my horizons to so much more: less TV watching, playing board games, still talking to myself, and still, yes, proudly still whipping up all manner of treats with whatever I can find in my cabinets.
How about you?

- Champagne Gold Chef Cookie Sheet + Parchment Paper Sheets: the hunt for the perfect, never-warping, even-heating cookie sheet is over. This baby is beautiful, so amazingly useful and yields amazing results. Bonus? I found the exact pre-cut sheets to fit perfectly into the champagne gold cookie sheet!
- Medium Cookie Scoop: you know I’ve been raving about this cookie scoop for years. And I still stand by it! 😉 These cookie scoops have been with me through 1,000s of batches of cookies, with cookie dough so tough even an ice cream scoop would run away from it. Lol. I highly recommend getting this (and honestly, getting at least 3.)

Easy Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies: this easy healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies recipe yields chewy cookies with crispy edges and lots of chocolate chips! Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Healthy.
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- ½ cup unsalted, natural creamy almond butter
- ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons golden ground flaxseed + 6 tablespoons water, whisked together, set for 15 minutes)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
- ¾ cup gluten free oat flour – if using homemade oat flour, make sure it’s very finely ground (not coarse)*
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar free chocolate chips or vegan chocolate chips
- ½ cup chopped walnuts (or your favorite add-in)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: coconut oil, almond butter, coconut sugar, maple syrup, flax eggs and vanilla. Whisk until the mixture resembles caramel.
- In a large bowl, using a rubber spatula, stir together all of the dry ingredients: oats, oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
- Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture. Using the spatula, fold and stir until well mixed. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
- Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop and drop cookie dough balls on the prepared cookie sheet, spread evenly apart. Optionally, dot the cookie tops with chocolate chips. Using a fork, flatten cookies to slightly chunkier than desired thickness—cookies will spread and flatten a bit. Cookie dough will be sticky.
- Bake for 12-18 minutes. Mine took 16 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes (on a cooling rack). Transfer cookies directly to a cooling rack to cool completely before storing. Storing instructions below. Enjoy!
