Simple Vegan Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes


1 and 1/2 cups Rolled Oats (144g)

1 cup All Purpose Flour (125g)

1 cup Dessicated Coconut (80g) Finely shredded coconut

1 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 tsp Salt

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 cup Light Brown Sugar (200g)

1/2 cup Vegan Butter (112g)

3 Tbsp Golden Syrup or sub Maple Syrup

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Tbsp Soy Milk or other non-dairy milk


1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

2Add the rolled oats, flour, coconut, baking soda, salt and cinnamon to a mixing bowl and mix together.

3Cream the vegan butter and brown sugar together and then add the syrup and vanilla.

4Then mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients by hand. Stirring until the mixture is very crumbly.

5Add the soy milk and mix in. Check if you can roll some of it into a ball - it should be sticky enough to do so. It will still be crumbly and look almost as if it's still too dry, but when you try and make a ball you'll find it's also very sticky. If it's still too crumbly, add a tiny bit more soy milk until it's sticky enough to roll into balls. When rolling into balls, you'll find that you're more pressing them into balls than rolling, this is fine, press into a ball and then roll a bit to make it nice and round and even.

6Place the rolled balls onto a parchment lined baking tray.

7Bake for 15 minutes. The edges should be firm and the tops lightly browned. They will be soft but will firm up while cooling.

8Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
