Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on June 30, 2012 by Tommye Solem


These vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are so can't eat just one! They have the moistness of banana bread, and they satisfy any craving for an oatmeal cookie (not to mention chocolate too!).

1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup almond meal
1/3 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
pinch of nutmeg
2 large ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (try our Peranzana, Sweet Barnea, or Castille)
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, almond meal, shredded coconut, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients...bananas, applesauce, vanilla extract, and extra virgin olive oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. With a small ice cream scooper or teaspoon, scoop about 2-3 teaspoons of cookie "dough" onto prepared baking sheet, place about an inch apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove and enjoy! Makes about 3 dozen small cookies.
