Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
These are the softest and chewiest vegan chocolate chip oatmeal cookies ever.
They are also packed with dairy-free chocolate chips!
Oatmeal cookies are so classic and irresistible – I love the texture of the baked oats and the decadence of the sweet chocolate chips together.
I also always add just a hint of cinnamon to the cookies, and maybe a little more during the holidays.
These are so quick and easy to make; they’ll be fresh out of the oven in under 30 minutes!This cookie recipe is fool-proof and perfect every time.
The dough is super easy to work with and comes together very quickly!
The secret to my oatmeal cookies is a dash of cream of tartar, that secret ingredient that makes snickerdoodle cookies have that iconic puffy and crinkled look.
I like the rise and puffiness it gives these cookies and I think it creates the most perfect texture!
Easy Vegan Chocolate Oat Cookies
Oats and chocolate are a great combination, the chewy texture from the oats paired with bittersweet chocolate is such a great combination!
They are especially perfect when they first come out of the oven.
The chocolate is all gooey and melted and the oat, cinnamon and vanilla flavors just fill up your home.
Sometimes I can’t resist just having a couple for breakfast, it’s a slightly less healthy, yet absolutely delicious way to enjoy your oats!
To get the perfect chewy texture with an ever-so-slightly crispy outside, I found the sweet spot for baking to be between 11-13 minutes.
Between 11-12 will give you a softer and more chewy cookie, and between 12-13 will give you a slightly more dense one.
Once you see the golden brown edges you’ll know they’re ready to come out though!
Also keep in mind they will finish cooking after they’re out of the oven, so it’s okay if they’re still slightly soft when you take them out!
How to Make Vegan Oatmeal Cookies
Mixing the Oatmeal Cookie Dough
When you’re ready to make these cookies, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.
Then mix your dry ingredients in one bowl, and your sugar and vegan butter in another – then add the flax egg and vanilla to the butter and sugar and mix well.
Slowly incorporate the dry into the wet until fully combined, and then stir in the oats and chocolate chips evenly.
Shaping and Baking Vegan Cookies
Take 2 tablespoon amounts of dough and roll them between the palms of your hands to make a ball.
Place on a baking tray covered in parchment paper 2 inches apart, and ever so slightly press them down just a bit.
Bake for 11-13 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the pan and then transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy once they are cool enough to touch!
