I love cookies. They can be sugar, chocolate chip, white macadamia nut, snickerdoodle, and/or oatmeal. There are hundreds of varieties of cookies, and I love all the cookies. I have a major problem with eating the whole batch in one sitting. That is totes not healthy. So I wanted to research healthier options for ingredients because I don’t want to feel guilty about eating an ungodly amount of cookies. Because a girl needs to have her cookies in good times and in bad.
I started to think about veganism. I’m not vegan, but I love the lifestyle and the food choices they make. The intent behind veganism is inspiring and helps the consumer to intuitively eat. Figuring out what foods work best for their well-being. And if you’re doing veganism right, all the ingredients are healthy and wholesome. They are no extra additives or unhealthy fats.
How can I make a cookie that is healthy and good for you and me? The answer…Vegan Oatmeal Cookies. And they are super easy to make.
I did a lot of research on the best way to make a vegan cookie. It’s crazy, most recipes out there are super crumbly and don’t resemble an actual cookie nor does it taste like an actual non-vegan oatmeal cookie. So I began the great adventure on how to make a healthy vegan cookie that tastes like the real thing.
Vegan Oatmeal Cookies
Are you ready to have your world shook?! These are the ingredients you will need:
- Oat Flour
- Rolled Oats
- Baking Powder
- Coconut Oil
- Coconut Sugar
- Almond Milk
- Flaxseed Egg
First, we need to make some oat flour. You don’t need to make oat flour, you can go to the store and buy some. Unfortunately, I don’t have any oat flour and I need to make some. All you have to do is measure the desired amount of oats and place it in a blender. Turn that thing on, and blend it until it’s fine like flour. I use a Nutribullet and it’s super easy. Also, we need to make a flaxseed egg so it has time to thicken before we add it to the recipe. Grab a tiny bowl and mix 1 tablespoon of flaxseed and 3 tablespoons of water together, set it aside, and let it thicken. Now that we have our flour and vegan egg, let’s start mixing. Before mixing, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. I’m glad we got that out of the way.
Grab a mixing bowl. We are going to mix the oat flour, rolled oats, coconut sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together and set them aside. It’s time for the wet ingredients. You can either get another bowl or just simply add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Before adding the wet ingredients, you might have to melt the coconut oil. Sometimes it will solidify in the jar. If that’s the case, simply microwave it for a few seconds.
Mix the coconut oil, almond milk, and flaxseed egg into the dry ingredients. Stir it all together, and place it in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
This will make it easier to mold into a cookie. After the 10 minutes are up, grab a cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper. Get a tablespoon and start spooning dough into the palms of your hands. Then mold into a cookie.
Remember they won’t spread or rise with the heat of the oven. You will need to shape the cookies with your hands. This recipe makes about 6 cookies.
Now place the sheet of cookies into the preheated oven for about 25 minutes.
When done, the edges should be slightly brown/toasted. Let them cool. Now you can enjoy some vegan oatmeal cookies that taste like the real thing. I promise you will love them.
With all things, please consume in moderation. (Will I take my advice? Probably not. LOL) I’m warning you it will be really hard to just eat one of these babies. That’s ok, though. They are semi-healthy.
