The Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today we are sharing our favourite oatmeal cookies, which also happen to be pretty darn healthy.  These little guys are vegan, gluten-free and have no refined sugar added; simple yet satisfying.  Oatmeal, Chocolate, Banana and Cinnamon = the DREAM TEAM!

There’s also a little bit of coconut oil in there (because you know even the dream team needs help sometimes).  I like using coconut oil in baking as a substitute for butter, shortening or vegetable oil;   it tolerates high heat better and lends a nice richness to the cookies without them feeling heavy.   However, if you want an oil-free version you can definitely try substituting applesauce.   Then you really could have these cookies for breakfast!

Also, I’m so excited to finally use our new dishes in food photography 🙂   Aren’t they pretty?  We finally upgraded from the Ikea dishes I bought about a thousand years ago and I’m in love with these new ones.

    These were absolutely fantastic, the only thing I would comment on is to make sure you wait 15-20 min before adding the chocolate chips. I didn’t do this and the chocolate chips melted right away, which ruined my batch, fortunately they still taste good with coffee 🙂 Thanks for this great vegan recipe full of lovely goodness! xo
