Easy Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

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?

Recommended Tools for the Best Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 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.)
  • Vegan Chocolate Chips or Sugar Free Chocolate Chips: my two favorite chocolate chips! Both tasty, one for the regular days and one for my lower sugar days. 😉 Both vegan + dairy-free.

Easy Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe


Description

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.


Ingredients

Scale

Wet Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 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

Add-ins

Optional Topping


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. In a large bowl, using a rubber spatula, stir together all of the dry ingredients: oats, oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture. Using the spatula, fold and stir until well mixed. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!

  1. Made these today! I added whole wheat flour and used 2 real eggs instead of flax eggs, and brown sugar instead of coconut sugar.

    I never bake, so my question is if my cookies turned out a little bit dry and “cake-y”, how could I avoid this in the future? They’re very yummy but fall apart and aren’t super chewy, if that makes sense. I may have overcooked but want to see if there could have been another reason for when I make these next time!

    1. Hi Makayla, yeah, it looks like something went wrong here. These cookies are supposed to be chewy and not cakey at all, with no issues sticking together. Did you use drippy, natural almond butter? It should be very liquidy & greasy (lol). Also, did you use large eggs? If the eggs were too large, that could increase cakeiness as well. Good luck!

  2. We love these cookies! I have made them several times for family and friends, and no one can believe they are gluten free and vegan! They are making an appearance at least once a month now!

    1. Did a double batch, made with chia eggs instead. They are wonderful, my picky kiddos love them and they’re full of good nutrition. Going to make these forever. 🙂

  3. I love chewy cookies and chocolate chips of course. So glad you made these cookies healthy so I can feel good about having two or three.

  4. These look so incredibly good! And I love that you have almond butter in them, that adds that extra taste of goodness. Definitely trying these!

      1. What would you recommend in place of the nut butter for my very allergic family? Excited to make these!

          1. Crazy enough, both sunflower and soy butter are also on the major allegen list for my kids. Could I just use regular butter (even though it isn’t as healthy)?

            1. Hm, that’s a tough one. I haven’t tried it, so I can’t say for sure, but you could try using melted butter. It might take some adjusting to get this texture of the cookie right. Let me know how it turns out!

  5. I’ve been on a quest for fun desserts I can make once a week that aren’t going to make me feel bad every time I take a bite. It’s so hard to find recipes that still taste good when you cut out all the sugar/butter, but this recipe tastes BETTER than a normal cookie! It’s filling if you just have one, and my entire family loves them. I’ve been making them for a few months now. I thought I’d keep looking for more recipes, but this is my go-to. Thank you so much!!

    1. I know EXACTLY where you’re coming from!!! I was so over feeling guilty about dessert (and so was my mom)—hence, my healthier versions of them. It makes me so, so happy and satisfied knowing that you & your family are enjoying my recipes (and not feeling one bit of guilt). Thanks for stopping by and letting me know. Hugs!

  6. What can you substitute for the coconut sugar? Can I use honey, more maple syrup or monk fruit sweetener and how much if I am substituting it?

    1. Hi Shash! You could sub organic brown sugar at 1:1, or perhaps a granulated monk fruit sweetener (though I haven’t tried this yet). I would not recommend using more maple syrup or other liquid sweetener. Let me know how it turns out!
