Chewy chocolate-chip oatmeal cookies

Updated: Oct 30, 2022

Growing up, for some reason, cookies were generally divided into two categories - classic chocolate chip, and oatmeal raisin (purportedly the "healthy" option). I've never been a huge fan of raisins in cookies, so I decided it was time to bridge the divide, and create a yummy, chewy chocolate-chip oatmeal cookie.

These are the perfect all-around cookie. Not too sweet. Pairs well with coffee or tea. Great for mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack time. And can easily be packed to take on the go.

Recipe: chewy choc-chip oatmeal cookies

(Makes approx. 15 cookies)


  • 1 cup almond flour

  • 1 cup oats

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • Pinch of sea salt

  • ¼ cup coconut sugar

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce

  • 4 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1 egg or “chia egg” (1 tbsp chia soaked in 4 tbsp water for 10 min)

  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips/chunks (or raisins)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper.

  2. Mix the chia egg, and set aside.

  3. Combine all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

  4. In a separate bowl, mix together all of the wet ingredients. Then pour these into the dry ingredients. Mix everything until combined. If the batter seems a bit runny, add another few tbsps of almond flour.

  5. Add in the chocolate chips and mix together.

  6. Use a regular tablespoon and transfer one slightly heaping spoon of batter at a time to the baking sheet. Then use your hands (or spoon) to gently nudge each scoop into a round, flat shape.

  7. Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 10-12 min., just until golden. Remember to set a timer.
