Vegan Cookies: Oat Flour Chocolate Chip

vegan cookies

Oat flour is a healthy, gluten-free (well, almost gluten-free) alternative to regular flour, and so easy to make at home! All you need are oats and a blender. I used Quaker oats, the slow-cooking kind for these vegan cookies. Using instant or quick-cooking oatmeal will make the dough of whatever you’re making mushy.

Vegan Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegan margarine
  • 1/4 cup canola or sunflower seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • making oat flour

Cooking Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F and grease a baking tray.

  2. Mix oat flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Add margerine and oil and stir until mixed. If the mixture is too dry, add a tablespoon of soy milk. Add chocolate chips last and mix.

  3. Roll tablespoon-sized balls of dough and flatten them with the back of a wet spoon on your baking tray. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

    fyi that if you’re cooking for a person with coeliac or gluten-intolerance, Quaker oats have the worst cross-contamination record around. They flour their production lines to keep the oats and grits they package rolling freely, so there is a lot of gluten present in their products. For true gluten-free cookies, one would have to use certified gluten-free oatmeal and flour.

    thank you for posting a “vegan friendly” cookie recipe. They are sometimes hard to come by. I am going to try this recipe with “Xocai Healthy Chocolate” for the “vegan chocolate chips”. “Xocai” products are “gluten free, vegan and vegetarian friendly!”

    Quaker Oats oatmeal is not even close to being gluten free with all of the cross-contamination issues. If you want to make a gluten free cookie please use certified, gluten free oats (such as Gluten Free Oats, LLC).

    I made these last night and they were all gone before the morning! No one knew they were oatmeal OR vegan! Thanks for a great recipe :)

    I made these last night with a few changes and they are INCREDIBLE. I suggest you refrigerate the dough an hour before baking. I also added 1 cup oats, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 cup walnuts, 1/2 cup dried cherries tot the dough. You can also bake these as bars by putting the dough into a 9×11 baking dish and baking for 22 minutes. Honestly the best cookies I’ve made.
