Chocolate Chip Coconut Oatmeal Cookies – Vegan!

Baked cookies

Simple cookie recipe for vegan chewy-on-the-inside cookies! With oats and no eggs or dairy, you can even pretend they are good for you.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup vegan butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp soy or oat milk
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup dried coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ to ⅔ cups chocolate chips
  • ½ cups walnuts chopped (optional)

Process

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Cream the vegan butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and maple syrup with a blender.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the oats, flour, coconut, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  4. Mix the dry and wet ingredients, either by hand or softly with a dough hook until the mixture is crumbly then mix in the soy milk.
  5. At that point, it should be wet enough that you can pick up a small handful and squish and pat it into a ball and then slightly flatten into a patty. If you can’t make it hold together at all, add a bit more soy milk.
  6. Place the cookies onto a baking stone or parchment lined pan.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges are firm and the tops slightly browned. Don’t overcook – they will get firm as they cool!
  8. Allow to cool for a 5-10 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bliss Balls

Blissful is an understatement. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups pitted and softened dates
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract

Toppings or Add-Ins:

  • Coconut
  • Almonds
  • Cashews
  • Chocolate nibs or chips

Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until combined. The consistency should be sticky and moldable.

Roll in coconut, nuts, or chocolate for a professional finish.

(If you want just chocolate bliss balls, omit the peanut butter. If you want peanut butter bliss balls, omit the cocoa powder.)
