Looking for the best healthy Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies? Look no further! These delicious soft and chewy one-bowl cookies are vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free. Made with flax eggs, coconut oil, oat flour, quick oats, chocolate chunks, cinnamon, maple syrup, and more; you won't believe how easy these plant based cookies are to make. You're going to want to bookmark this one!



2 tablespoons flax meal (with 2 tablespoons warm water)

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

3/4 cup maple syrup

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 3/4 cup oat flour

1 1/2 cups quick oats

1/2 cup whole rolled oats

1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks


  1. Make flax eggs. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons flax meal with 2 tablespoons warm water. Stir until combined and set aside. 
  2. Make cookie mixture. In a large mixing bowl combine add melted coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, quick oats, oat flour, whole oats, the flax mixture, chocolate chunks. Stir until mixture is fully and thoroughly combined. 
  3. Scoop. Using a 2 inch cookie scoop, scoop the cookie mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet leaving about 2 inches between each cookie. 
  4. Shape. Use your fingers to press any loose dough from scooping into the round shape of the cookie. Usually need to do this to the bottom of each cookie.
  5. Bake. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. I always like to sprinkle my warm cookies with a little bit of flaky sea salt! Totally optional though. Allow cookies to cool for about 10 minuets before serving or make ahead. 


  • To store. These cookies are perfect to meal prep for the week or make ahead! Store them in an air-tight container for up to 7 days. I assure you they won't stick around for seven days though, ha.
  • To freeze. For best results, wrap the cookies in plastic wrap or a freezer bag and place in an air tight container before placing in the freezer. Can store in the freezer for up to 6 months. Let them come to room temperature (takes about 30 to 60 minutes) before serving.
  • Mix up the additions. Change up the chocolate, add some chopped nuts, or even some coconut flakes!
  • Change the sweetener. While maple syrup is my favorite for this recipe, you could also use honey or the sweetener of you choice in this recipe.
  • Make them oatmeal raisin cookies! Instead of using chocolate, take the base of this recipe and add raisins, cranberries, or dried cherries for a healthy chewy oatmeal cookie.
