Well, well, well…….  I don’t have much to say about these besides the fact that they are THE BOMB.  These little things are So. Dang. Good.  I mean I really want to cuss they are THAT good, but I’m going to refrain.

I can’t take credit for these, but I would make one change to the recipe.  I would use coconut sugar instead of brown sugar.  I didn’t actually have any, so i went with the brown sugar, and wasn’t disappointed AT ALL, but I’d rather use coconut sugar if available.  I found this recipe on Chelsea’s Messy Apron.  Thank you Chelsea for an a-mazing cookie recipe!

Now – do yourself a favor and GO MAKE THESE!

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons dark brown sugar, lightly packed OR coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 and 1/2 cups oat flour (regular oats blended)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Take regular old fashioned oats or quick oats and blend them until they resemble a flour or powder in a blender or food processor.
  2. Combine the vanilla extract, large egg, and brown sugar in a bowl. Melt the coconut oil and let it cool slightly before adding to the bowl. Beat everything together until just combined.
  3. Stir in the oat flour (measured after blending NOT before), baking soda, cinnamon (scale this amount to taste preferences), and salt.
  4. Stir until just combined and then fold in the dark chocolate chips.  (She let her dough sit for an hour, but I went right for it!  If you have patience, let it sit for an hour in the fridge).
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. Using a cookie scoop (and pack these in the scoop very tightly or they may crumble), scoop out balls of the dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Press a few more chocolate chips in the tops if desired.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.
  8. Remove and allow to stay on the baking sheet for another 2 minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack.
  9. Enjoy!
