Delicious oatmeal coconut cookies with chewy & crispy goodness! Wonderfully healthy, vegan and gluten free.
Happy April Fool’s Day! Er… Happy first day of April! Are you a fan of all the hijinks that occur on this crazy day?
I’m not one for all the devious shenanigans because I like to have my facts and proceed. Yikes, that sounds boring and such… but like I always tell Erik, I don’t like being Vanilla Sky’d. Lemme explain, when I watched that movie like 20 years ago (woah), I got so dizzy not knowing what was real and what was fake… and it left me wholly unsettled. And not at all whole. Lol.
So April Fool’s is all tricks and such… and I’m like, what’s real?!? Who knows??
So trust me when I say we are not participating in these deceptive shenanigans today… but are, instead, celebrating National Oatmeal Coconut Cookie Day. Okay, fine, that’s not a real holiday (did I just Vanilla Sky you?)… but it seriously will be when you make these scrumptious healthy coconut oatmeal breakfast cookies!
Let’s bake away the fools (or something) and focus on today’s delicious oatmeal coconut cookies.
How to Make Healthy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Stir all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl: coconut, oats, oat flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Whisk all of the wet ingredients together in a medium bowl: flax egg, almond butter, coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup and vanilla.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients to create the oatmeal coconut cookie dough. Stir and fold until all of the ingredients are well incorporated. Fold in your favorite nuts and dried fruit.
Scoop and drop balls of oatmeal coconut cookie dough onto the baking sheet you lined earlier. Flatten each cookie to the thickness you like.
Bake, Cool and Enjoy
Bake, cool and enjoy the best healthy oatmeal coconut cookies!

The first day, the gluten free oatmeal coconut cookies are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. By the second day, the flavor of these vegan breakfast cookies intensifies and the cookies soften a bit. So good!

Very yum, quick and easy. I used crunchy, unsalted peanut butter as I didn’t have almond. Great to have a new fast easy recipe on hand!

Woohoo! Always happy to hear about a successful ingredient swap. So glad you’re enjoying the cookies!
So good! I wanted homemade cookies that were gluten, dairy and nut free(with the exception of coconut). I used sunflower seed butter instead. Tasted so good. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us, will make it many times for sure!
