Easy Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

By Hot For Food

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 10 minutes


2 tbsp golden flax meal

4 tbsp water

2 ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 C natural unsalted peanut butter (or other nut butter)

2 tbsp neutral vegetable oil or melted coconut oil

2 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract (can omit if you don't have)

2 C old fashioned gluten-free rolled oats

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 C vegan chocolate chips

1/2 C rough chopped pecans (optional)


1Preheat oven to 375°F and line a large baking sheet with a silpat mat or parchment paper.

2In a large mixing bowl combine golden flax meal and water and set aside to thicken.

3Once flax mixture is thickened add mashed bananas, peanut butter, oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract if using. Use a whisk to combine this really well.

4To the bowl add rolled oats, sea salt, baking powder, cinnamon, chocolate chips, and pecans. Use a spatula to fold the mixture together until well combined.

5Take a heaping tablespoon, nearly 2 tablespoons of batter and form it into a ball. Place these spaced an inch apart on the baking sheet. Slightly flatten the cookies with your hand and shape into circles or leave them as mounds if you prefer. They will not spread much during baking.

6Continue baking in batches, one baking sheet at time on the middle rack for about 14 to 16 minutes per batch or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean from the center. The bake time may vary depending on moist your cookies are to begin with which may depend on how ripe your bananas are!

7Let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes before removing with a spatula onto wire racks to cool.

8Store in a container that's not air tight at room temperature or in the fridge.
