The Best Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Makes 12-14 cookies

These cookies are a healthier version of a regular oatmeal chocolate-chip cookie.  They are made with oats as the flour and healthy fats such as coconut oil and dark chocolate and are gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free.  They are simply delicious and when they come out of the oven my family can’t devour them fast enough!


  • 1 cup gluten-free Old Fashioned Oats
  • ½ cup gluten-free quick Oats
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • ½ cup Coconut Oil
  • ¼ - ½ cup Dark Chocolate Chips


  • To make Oat flour: Blend old-fashioned oats in a food processor or blender until they resemble a flour or powder.  Measure 1 cup after blending. 
  • Melt coconut oil and let cool.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the oat flour, quick oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  • In another bowl, stir together the vanilla, egg, maple syrup and cooled coconut oil.
  • Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  • Fold in dark chocolate chips.
  • Cover the dough and place in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes or until the dough has firmed up (it should feel like regular cookie dough).
  • Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  • When dough is ready scoop onto parchment lined or lightly oiled cookie sheet.  If dough gets too firm from chilling just let it sit out for 15 minutes until it can be scooped into balls.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until very lightly browned around the edges.  Let cookies sit as they will harden as they cool on baking sheet.
  • Enjoy!
