Recipe Tips

  • Using a silicon mat can help create a crispier cookie texture.
  • To form the cookies, a small measuring cup can be used to press and shape the dough. The dough may not stick together easily, so pull the cookie cutter slowly to prevent it from falling apart.
  • If you don’t have a cookie cutter, you can also scoop and place the dough on the mat.
  • After baking, the cookies may be fragile and prone to breaking apart. To prevent this, let them cool completely before eating.
  • If you feel that the dough is unlikely to stick together when you make it, pulsing half of the oats in a food processor or adding a small amount of almond flour or oat flour can help to make the dough easier to form.

How to Eat the Cookies

  • You can enjoy it as is and savor its crunchy texture, which makes it great for breakfast or as a snack.
  • This treat is made from almost the same ingredients as granola and tastes delicious when mixed with your favorite dairy-free milk (such as almond milk or oat milk) or yogurt.
  • I love to top my plain yogurt with broken, leftover cookies and add raisins and dried figs.

Mix-in Ideas

Flourless oatmeal cookies can be customized with various mix-ins for an extra special flavor. Here are some ideas:

  1. Chocolate Chips – Adding chocolate chips to oatmeal cookies is a classic choice everyone loves. Use dark chocolate chips as a healthier option. White chocolate chips are my favorite.
  2. Chopped Nuts – Chopped nuts such as walnuts, pecans, or pistachio add a delicious crunch to oatmeal cookies. They also provide a healthy dose of protein and healthy fats.
  3. Dried Fruit – Dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries, or dates add a natural sweetness to oatmeal cookies. They also add a chewy texture that complements the oats.
  4. Butter – Adding natural peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, or other vegan butter to oatmeal cookies can create a rich and creamy texture.
  5. Seeds – Seeds such as chia, flax, or hemp seeds can add a crunchy texture to oatmeal cookies. They are also a good source of fiber and healthy fats.
  6. Vanilla Extract – Enhances the overall taste and aroma of the cookies.

  1. We have a coconut allergy in the family. What can we sub for the flakes and the oil?

    1. Hi Kyashi, thanks for asking a question. You can omit coconut flakes. And for the oil, you can use butter(or vegan butter), or some neutral flavor oil such as canola oil and sunflower oil. I haven’t tried with these but it should work. I don’t recommend extra virgin olive oil for baking as it has a distinct flavor(if your olive oil has no smell, you can try that though). I hope this help! If you have more questions, please let me know:)
