Chewy chocolate-chip oatmeal cookies

Updated: May 18, 2020

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

  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips/chunks


  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.

  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. No need to space them out too much. When all the small heaps of batter have been transferred, you can gently flatten each one with a fork.

  7. Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 12-15 min, just until golden. Remember to set a timer.
