Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nov 17, 2015 | Dessert, Vegetarian Recipes

Hello my hungry friends,

So I know that I have been on a sweets kick lately, but with the holidays coming up that is pretty much all you’ve been asking for. But I promise I will start posting some hearty and healthy recipes again next week!

“Sometimes me think what is love, and then me think love is what last cookie is for. Me give up the last cookie for you.”

-Cookie Monster

Oatmeal cookies are a house favorite around here and I figured that we weren’t the only ones who felt that way. The tricky thing about oatmeal cookies is making this the right consistency. Too much flour or oats will cause  the cookies to be too dry, however too little will cause them to crumble while picking up. Neither are doable for a cookie enthusiast. This dough also requires refrigeration time to keep from spreading too much and becoming flat and burnt. Baking cookies is a science I tell ya!

    Ashleigh, these look amazing. I know my husband would love them. I see you list flour in the recipe. What sort of flour is that? Wheat? He’s been avoiding wheat so I assume I can use another flour such as oat flour. I usually make my own from oats in my little nut grinder. Would that work do you think?

  2. Morgan Timm

    Wow! Those look great! I love how they look just as delicious as any store bought cookies (maybe even better!) and that they are so much healthier for you! I’ve been trying to start eating less processed foods and other things that are bad for my body, and this recipe looks like the perfect sweet treat! I can’t wait to try it!

    • Om Livin'

      Yes, I bet these would surpass the store bought cookies in a taste test! 🙂 I have decided when we move that I will be making everything I can from home!! The less processed I can get the better! 🙂 I’ll be sure to post all the recipes once I perfect them! 🙂
