Healthy Oat Cookies
These Cookies are my favourite grab and go type of breakfast or just a snack of the moment. They are thick, soft and full of healthy goodies like oats, bananas, carrots, coconut oil, honey etc. These oatmeal cookies are also easy, fast and delicious! You can serve them warm or save them after few days.
Yield: 20 cookies
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
Total time: 30 min
What you need
250g old fashioned oats
95g flour, all purpose flour or oat flour
45g coconut sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
200ml milk of choice
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 tbsp coconut oil
For Banana Cookies:
1 tbsp peanut butter
For Chocolate Cookies:
1 tbsp cocoa
50g chocolate chips
For Carrot Cookies:
2-3 grated carrots
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
*With all these ingredients I made 9 pieces carrot cookies, 7 pieces chocolate cookie and 5 banana cookies.
What you do
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, stir together oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
3. In a medium bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together melted honey (or maple syrup), egg and vanilla. Mix in the coconut oil, coconut sugar and 200g milk of choice (I used almond milk). If you don't have coconut oil you can use melted butter.
4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined. Separate the final mix in 3 separated bowls, if you want to make the 3 version cookies as I did. In the first bowl for carrot cookies add in 2-3 grated carrots, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger. In the second bowl for chocolate cookies add 1 tablespoon of cocoa and 50g of chocolate chips. And in the last bowl for making the banana cookies add in 1 mashed banana and 1 tablespoon of peanut butter.
5. Use a spoon or measuring cup to drop 1/4-cup portions of dough onto the prepared baking sheets. Use your fingers to gently shape the cookies and flatten slightly, as they won't flatten on their own during baking.
6. Bake 15-20 minutes, until set and lightly golden. (If baking more than one pan at a time, be sure to rotate the pans halfway through the baking time.)
7. Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. You can serve them with milk or as they are.
You can make your own oat flour in your food processor. Just add some old-fashioned oats in your food processor and blend until finely ground, about 1-2 minutes.
If you want to save them for few days later, keep them in a plastic food container, it will make them softer.
