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 ๐Ÿ™‚   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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for this great vegan recipe full of lovely goodness! xo
