These Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are a delicious nostalgic treat! Semisweet chocolate chips and chewy oats are combined with a dash of cinnamon for a perfect combination.
Hi friends and happy Monday! I have a new treat recipe for you today – Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! This recipe may be basic, but it is so delicious and a perfect sweet to make for yourself or share with a friend. As much as I love classic chocolate chip cookies, I love the extra flavor and texture that oats add, and this version is really no harder to make! Also – say what you want about oatmeal raisin cookies, but I much prefer chocolate instead. So, here is how I make them!
What ingredients do I need for vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies?
- Oatmeal – I mean… obviously. I use a mix of quick cooking and old fashioned oats for the best flavor and texture! You can use one or the other and still get great results, but I love the blend of both.
- Chocolate chips – Vegan chocolate chips are a must! I have been using the Kirkland semisweet chocolate chips from Costco recently which are accidentally vegan, and they are so good. There are tons of vegan friendly chips available in stores nowadays, even Walmart has come out with their own line!
- Vegan butter – Can’t make cookies without butter! I use a mix of butter and shortening for the right blend of flavor and structure. My favorite vegan butter is Country Crock avocado plant butter.
- Shortening – I say it every time, but… buy good quality shortening! The flavor totally comes through in the final product, and you don’t want your cookies to have a chemical or artificial aftertaste.
- Cinnamon – I love a sprinkle of cinnamon in these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for a warm, toasty flavor!
- Aquafaba – My favorite egg replacement for cookies is aquafaba, which is chickpea brine! It helps make the cookies light and chewy.
- Vegan white and brown sugar – Remember that many cheaper sugar brands bleach and filter their sugar using bone char. I recommend organic or certified vegan brands for baking.
- Vanilla extract – This is a must-have for all baked goods!
- All purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt.
How do I make these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies?
- Add your vegan butter and vegan shortening to the bowl of a stand mixer along with your white and brown sugar, and beat until fluffy!
- Next, mix in your aquafaba “egg” and vanilla extract, and stir to combine.
- Then, you will add your dry ingredients – the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and of course the oats. Mix everything together until it forms cookie dough!
- Finally, the best part – add in some chocolate chips! Scoop the dough out into big cookies, and bake until golden brown and delicious. Yum!
