Oat Cookies, Gluten-Free, Vegan

oatmeal cookies

When I was growing up in Russia, we had “oatmeal cookies” that were very delicious, but too sweet and too dry. I created these no-flour, gluten-free vegan cookies this morning to recreate and improve the oatmeal cookies of my childhood. And improve they did! Light, chewy and moist, these cookies are going to be a new staple at my house.

    1. Preheat the oven to 375 *F.
    2. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix. Slowly mix in all other ingredients. Spoon the dough onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until the cookies are lightly (!) browned on top. "Lightly" is the key word.

        These were absolutely delicious. I will make them again soon. (I did tweaked a little too. Little bit less of coconut oil and 1 egg instead)
        Thank you for great recipe!

        I just made these but tweaked it a bit. I wanted more protein, so I cut down the ground oats to 3/4 cup and added 4 Tbsp of vanilla brown rice protein powder. I also only used 1 mashed banana and 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce. These are YUMMY!!! Thank you for the recipe! Taste like little banana bread cookies! đŸ™‚

        Do you think it will still come out good if I dont use banana?

        These sound good! I just started grinding oats into flour and used it to make pancakes! Loved them! Could we replace the maple syrup with honey in this recipe do you think?
