Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Again, if oats aren't an obstacle for your system, these healthy treats are a great snack! This recipe comes to me from my new cookbook, "Clean Food" by Terry Walters (which, btw, is an EXCELLENT resource for those interested in eating deliciously and nutritiously).

For this recipe, you will need:

- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup brown rice flour
- 3/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 c maple syrup
- 1/2 c canola or veg oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 c dark choc chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In large bowl, combine oats, flour, coconut, cinnamon, and salt. In separate smaller bowl, whisk together syrup, oil, and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until evenly combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Spoon dough onto sprayed cookie sheet and do your best to make it stick together as a mound. Bake 13-15 mins or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and enjoy warm :)

Makes roughly 2 dozen.

Notes: Can also add 1 c chopped toasted walnuts for variation.


  1. YES! Thanks for this! Despite the facebook mockery, I can imagine these being amazing!

  2. They ARE amazing. I've started using maple syrup - agave blend instead of pure maple syrup and it works just as well. I also add about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of applesauce, which keeps everything moist... you can get away with less syrup / blend that way. I also use a whole cup of coconut. And recently I started adding about 1 T of cocoa. They're basically vegan dump cookies :)
