These soft and chewy oat flour chocolate chip cookies are easy to make and ready in under 20 minutes. Made with just 8 ingredients (including flaxseed!) and without butter, oil and refined sugar, these delicious cookies are total guilt-free dessert. Naturally vegan and gluten-free.


Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free oat flour*
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raw, unsalted creamy almond butter (or any nut or seed butter you prefer)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup mini vegan dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients. Add the oat flour, flaxseed, baking powder and salt to a medium-sized mixing bowl and whisk together.
  3. Add the wet ingredients. Add the almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix together until well combined.
  4. Add the chocolate chips. Stir in the chocolate chips using a large wooden spoon.
  5. Form the cookies. Use a retractable cookie scoop to form cookie dough balls and place them on the lined baking sheet (1 heaping tablespoon each makes about 15 cookies). Roll each ball together betwen your hands and slightly flatten each cookie.
  6. Bake for 8 minutes. After removing from the oven, allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  7. Enjoy! Serve immediately or store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months.


Making your own oat flour is actually really easy and takes less than a minute. Simply add rolled oats to a mini food processor and process for 30-60 seconds until it forms a fine powder. However, I do not recommend using homemade oat flour when baking cookies. Even with the use of a high-speed blender, the oat flour will likely not be as fine as store-bought versions and therefore the cookies will come out more dense.
