Chunky healthy vegan oat cookies…..which are packed with nutrient dense ingredients. Not only do they make a great snack but you could even have them for breakfast! As well as being vegan, these cookies are also gluten free, refined sugar free and are packed with healthy fats!
These cookies are super simple to make and its likely you’ll have many of the ingredients in your cupboard already. Think staple ingredients such as rolled or jumbo oats, maple syrup, desiccated coconut, ground almonds, chia seeds, walnuts and a few warming spices such as cinnamon and ginger.
One thing to note with these cookies is they are best eaten within the first day or two of making as they will soften over time. Thats why I opted to only make 6 cookies, as 6 cookies really don’t last long in my house!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Heres the recipe:
- Dry Ingredients:
- 100g Rolled or Jumbo oats
- 35g Desiccated coconut
- 35g Ground almonds
- 15g chopped walnuts
- 1 tbsp Chia seeds
- 1 tsp Ground ginger
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- Pinch of sea salt
- Wet Ingredients:
- 80g Coconut oil, melted
- 65ml Maple syrup
- 65ml Dairy free milk
- 2 tsp Vanilla extract
- A few toffee drops (optional)
- Preheat an oven to 170oc and line a baking tray with parchment paper
- Add all of the wet ingredients to a bowl and mix until well combined
- Add to this bowl all of the dry ingredients and mix together
- Leave the mixture for 20 minutes to allow the chia seeds to soak up some of the moisture and form a cookie batter
- After 20 minutes, using wet hands, scoop up 6 even sized balls onto the baking tray and flatten into disc shapes with the palm of your hand, smoothing around the edges with your fingers
- Place in the preheated oven for 18 minutes or until golden brown
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. The cookies will harden as they cool but should still be soft and chewy
