Dairy Free Oatmeal Cookies


Heartwarmingly chewy oats and a lightly crispy exterior combine with warm cinnamon flavor for the best dairy free oatmeal cookies for your cookie jar!



Wet Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup unsalted, natural creamy almond butter or your favorite nut butter
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water, whisked together, set for 15 minutes)
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons oat flour – if using homemade, make sure it’s very finely ground (not coarse)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • ½ cup raisins, chocolate chips or your favorite add-ins
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts (or your favorite add-in)


  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 your favorite add-ins. Cookie dough will be sticky.
  5. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop and drop cookie dough balls onto the prepared cookie sheet, spread evenly apart. Using a fork, flatten cookies to desired thickness—cookies will only spread a tiny bit.
  6. Bake for 12-16 minutes. Mine took 14 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!
