Scale

Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 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 ground flaxseed + 6 tablespoons warm water, whisked together, set for 15 minutes)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • ¾ cup gluten free oat flourif using homemade, make sure it’s very finely ground (not coarse)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Add-ins

  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (or your favorite add-in)

Optional Topping

  • 23 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips

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.
  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 2-tablespoon 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 desired thickness—cookies will only spread a tiny 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 onto a cooling rack to cool completely before storing. Storing instructions below. Enjoy!
