Today, we’re gonna head into the kitchen, warm up the oven, and get out our cutest, coziest aprons because it’s TIME. We’re making the coziest oatmeal cookies to grace your dairy free cookie jar. The best part? No one will even suspect it’s dairy free! Let’s get baking!
Deliciously Dairy Free Ingredients for Dairy Free Oatmeal Cookies
Whether you’re new to dairy free baking or a longtime veteran at it, you may know that dairy free ingredients can be healthier and made from whole ingredients. These dairy free oatmeal cookies are made with my favorite ones:
Coconut Oil & Almond Butter: two of my favorite dairy free ingredients that are staples in my baking pantry. These two ingredients combine to add a richness and delicious chewiness to each and every oatmeal cookie. You can also learn how to make almond butter and use it to make these cookies!
Coconut Sugar & Pure Maple Syrup: I like to use a combination of sweeteners so my cookies have a subtly complex sweetness. Coconut sugar and maple syrup add a warm coziness to these oatmeal cookies that remind me of fall, while still keeping the recipe dairy free.
Rolled Oats & Oat Flour: we’re doubling down on our oat ingredients for twice the fiber-rich, soul-satisfying oat flavor. Its natural slight nuttiness and willingness to absorb and spotlight flavors makes oat flour one of the best ingredients to use in baking. Try using homemade oat flour or, for a quick & easy solution, use ready-made oat flour.
Your Favorite Add-ins: this is where your personal favorites come in—try adding in any or all of your favorite add-ins. A few personal favorite combos of mine: 1) chopped dried cherries & dark chocolate, 2) chopped dates and pecans, 3) ______(add yours here!)____.
How to Make Dairy Free Oatmeal Cookies
Making dairy free oatmeal cookies involves a few simple steps and tried-and-true techniques that keep everything peaceful and enjoyable. Most of us didn’t get into baking for the speed-tactics, but for the pleasure of savoring each moment. So I invite you to just enjoy the experience. 🙂
First things first, preheat your oven. Erik tends to forget this step if he doesn’t do it right away—so we’ve both gotten very accustomed to doing it before even bringing out the baking tools. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil.
Prepare all of your wet ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Add the coconut oil, almond butter, coconut sugar, maple syrup, flax egg and vanilla. Now, whisk it all together until these ingredients truly combine—look for a caramely look and a cohesive, almost gel-like texture.
Now, grab another bowl—a large mixing bowl. Here, you’ll add all of the dry ingredients: oats, oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Grab a new, clean whisk and whisk it all together.
Grab a spatula and the medium bowl. Tip it over the large bowl and scrape all of the wet ingredients from the medium bowl into the large bowl. Using the spatula, stir and fold both components together until well mixed. We’re not using a whisk here because the dough is too thick to whisk (and no one really wants to coerce that inevitable dough ball out of being stuck in the middle of the whisk). Fold in your favorite add-ins.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop and drop balls of oatmeal cookie dough onto the baking sheet. Flatten cookies to the thickness you’d like.
Bake, Cool and Enjoy
