The Best Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
By Peanut Palate
🔪Prep Time: 25 mins
¼ cup vegan butter softened at room temperature
¼ cup light brown sugar
2 tbsp white sugar
½ chia egg 1½ tbsp lukewarm water mixed with ½ tbsp black chia seeds, set aside for 15 minutes
½ tsp vanilla extract
5 tbsp all-purpose flour
⅛ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp pink salt
¾ cup + 1 tbsp quick-cooking oats
¼ cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips
1Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
2In a medium bowl, cream together the white sugar, brown sugar, vegan butter and vanilla. Add in the chia egg mixture once it has set for 15 minutes and has a gel-like texture.
3In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt and oats.
4Add the dry ingredients into the wet, stirring to combine until a dough forms.
5Stir in the vegan chocolate chips. If the dough is not forming enough to shape into a cookie, add 1-2 tbsp more of oats as needed.
6Grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
7Shape the dough into 10 cookies.
8Place the cookies evenly apart on the baking sheet.
9Bake for 12 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to chill in the refrigerator for an hour. This step makes them even chewier!
10Once they have cooled down, enjoy!

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
