Healthy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

This week my baby girl turns 25. When I asked her what she wanted she said vegan chocolate chip cookies. I also had a request from a reader and his family for healthy baked desserts. So here goes!


  • 2/3 cup plus 1/2 cup oat flour (you can grind your own from oats if you can't find oat flour)
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup chopped macadamia or walnuts nuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 TBL melted coconut oil
  • 3-5 TBL almond milk

Preheat oven to 380°

Mix dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add vanilla and coconut oil. Add 3 TBL of milk and mix. Add more milk as needed  until mixture sticks together and forms a ball but is not too sticky.

Place 1-2 tablespoon full of dough on an un-greased cookie sheet. These cookies will not spread much so you can put them pretty close together. Bake for 7 minutes or until done. Take them out while they still look soft on top. They will harden up as they cool.

I see it says “2/3 cup and 1/2 cup of oat flour.” Is the 2/3 cup of something else? Thanks ????
