Nikki created these cookies for our Vegan Weight Loss Manifesto (2017) to help those who are just starting to transition from standard sweets and deserts to ones made with whole foods. Over the years of working with clients, we have found that for many the jump from the typical North American diet to a clean whole food plant-based way of eating could be too extreme. To fully transition to a whole food plant-based lifestyle is a journey and it’s okay to take some time to adjust to the new tastes and flavours. We believe that these Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are a great bridge between the highly processed sweets and a treat that is totally clean and has a high nutritional value such us our:

Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Servings: 20 cookies
Author: Active Vegetarian

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp coconut oil plus more for greasing pan
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour see note
  • 1 cup whole old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp natural almond butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 bar (40-50g) of organic vegan dark chocolate (minimum 80 percent cacao), chopped into chunks
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350*F (177*C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly brush with coconut oil.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oat flour, whole oats, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate, and mix well. Once the coconut oil is well combined, add the chocolate.
  • Using clean hands, form 1-inch (25-mm) balls and place on baking sheet. Once you have finished using all the dough, use a fork and lightly press down on each cookie.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 15 minutes. Do not over-bake these cookies, especially if you prefer a chewier texture.

Notes

How do I make oat flour?
One of the easiest healthy substitutions you can make in your baked recipes
is to replace plain white flour with oat flour. Oat flour is essentially finely
processed ground oats and here is how to make it:
To replace 1 cup (125 g) of white flour, you will need 1 heaping cup (80 g) whole
rolled oats, certified gluten-free if necessary. Pulse oats in food processor/
blender/coffee bean grinder until oats resemble fine crumbs/flour.
