These vegan chocolate oatmeal cookies are a rich and chocolatey treat. Based on oats and peanut butter, they're a naturally sweetened, healthy alternative to sugary store bought cookies. Better yet, they’re super easy to make and are ready in just 15 minutes!

Equipment

  • Half or quarter sized baking sheet

Ingredients
 
 

Dry Ingredients

  • 160 g oats
  • 25 g cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 60 g coconut oil melted
  • 125 g smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp agave nectar
  • 2 tbsp dairy-free milk

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°c/350°f. Line a cookie sheet with baking paper.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the flaxseed and water.
  • Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, peanut butter, vanilla extract, agave nectar, dairy free milk, and flaxseed mixture until smooth and combined.
  • Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring until well combined. If the cookie mixture seems too dry, you can add some extra milk 1 tbsp at a time.
  • Shape or scoop the mixture into 12 evenly sized balls. Place them on the lined baking sheet then press them down to the desired thickness using your hand or a fork.
  • Bake them in the oven for 12-14 minutes, until the edges have firmed up. Allow them to cool on a rack before eating.
  • (Optional) If you would like, drizzle the cookies with melted dairy-free dark chocolate and sprinkle with chopped nuts.

Notes

STORAGE: Keep the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or up to 2 weeks in the fridge. Freeze for up to 3 months, and defrost at room temperature or in the fridge before eating.
