These vegan chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are easy to make and the recipe makes a bunch of cookies for everyone to enjoy! (or just yourself we’re not judging!)

I love oatmeal anything (I mean I have a whole section of this food blog dedicated to oatmeal!) so it only seemed right that made a vegan recipe for chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I’m a big oatmeal raisin cookie fan but my Twitter followers roasted me. So to appease them I made this incredible vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe. But I’m still making an oatmeal raisin cookie soon 😉

How to Make Vegan Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

This vegan chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe is similar to most other cookie recipes out there with a few caveats. As a vegan egg replacement for cookies, we used Just Egg liquid and let me tell you it works great! If you still don’t have access to Just Egg there are plenty of other egg substitutes that you can use. The simplest is a flax egg or a banana. Our recipe calls for 2 large “eggs” for whichever substitute you decide to use.

Now you know your oven better than me because well, I’ve never even seen your oven. And it’s a well-known fact that most ovens are actually liars. Now what I mean by that is most ovens aren’t calibrated for the right temperature, so you might put in 350F on the display but actually in the oven it can be way off (which is most often the case). So if you know your oven runs hot either reduce the heat a bit or put them in for a shorter amount of time. The easiest way to know for sure what temperature your oven is is by using an oven thermometer to tell you.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies (Vegan)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda cinnamon and salt.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, use a hand blender to beat your vegan butter until it has a smooth consistency. Througout this step use a spatula liberally to scrap the mixture off of the edges and back into the bowl. Add your brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat on medium speed until well mixed in. Next blend in the Just Egg, vanilla and molasses. When that is well mixed in blend in the dry ingredients on low speed. Now blend in your oats, and finally when everything is well mixed together add in your chocolate chips. Be careful not to over blend the chocolate chips because they will fall apart.
  4. Put a piece of parchement paper on a cookie tray. Use a spoon or a ice cream scoop to scoop the dough out and form a ball with your hands and place on the cookie rack. You want about 2-3 tablespoons of dough per cookie. These cookies do spread out quite a bit though so be sure to space them out accordingly. I used a standard cookie pan and only did 9 cookies per tray and constantly had 2 trays rotating. Place in the oven for 13 minutes. Remove and let sit for at least 5 minutes. They will look very gooey when they first come out but I promise they set very firmly so don’t overcook them.
  5. Top with flaky salt and enjoy with a nice glace of cold oatmilk!

Also, my friend Candice of The Edgy Veg taught me that interestingly enough almost all semi-sweet chocolate chips are vegan, except Hershey. It’s always good to check just to be sure.

Rescue Dog Kitchen Vegan Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Kitchen Equipment I used for recipe:

  • Wild 3 tier cookie cooling rack – Alright I know I said a cooling rack is a cooling rack, but when I was scrolling amazon the other day I found this crazy 3 tier cookie cooling rack! Now I don’t own this myself or know how functional it is but it looks wild lol
  • Gold Cooling Rack – There really isn’t a difference between a regular cooling rack and a gold one BUT they look super cute in pics so I love mine so much!
  • Aesthetically pleasing teal spoon set – a lot of people recently have been asking about my spoon set and I feel like a fraud because everyone thinks it’s some expensive set but it’s super inexpensive and they look amazing!

No surprise here, even if this recipe does have oatmeal in it, there is still a ton of stuff that isn’t packed with a lot of nutrition. Although one cookie certainly wouldn’t ruin your day, eating the entire batch (over 6000 calories) certainly would and could also have some other serious health implications. Like we always talk about when we discuss “junk” vegan food, moderation is the key to success.

There isn’t much nutritionally to vegan chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. It’s essentially a lot of sugar and fat held together by oats. That being said the oats do help add some fiber which aids in stabilizing blood sugar levels as well as the fancy molasses add a nice boost of iron. So there are definitely worse foods to eat. That being said we would try to limit your intake to just a few especially if you’re worried about your blood sugar or extra calories.

    These are DEEELISH! Just lil patties of butter, sugar and oats. 5 stars!

    I guess i misunderstood the assignment. It took me a lot longer than 25 minutes to make 2.5 batches. I found the hand blender just threw the oats and then the chips so had to hand stir those in. Probably because my cookie dough was a lil drier. Mine came out pretty dark from the get-go and was careful not to over cook. I will reduce the chips next time by a cup.

    Great recipe! I made larger cookies (3 tbsp) for me because I like them chewier and smaller cookies (2 tbsp) as my partner likes them crunchier. They are both delicious!
