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!
- 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
- Take regular old fashioned oats or quick oats and blend them until they resemble a flour or powder in a blender or food processor.
- 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.
- Stir in the oat flour (measured after blending NOT before), baking soda, cinnamon (scale this amount to taste preferences), and salt.
- 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).
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- 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.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.
- Remove and allow to stay on the baking sheet for another 2 minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack.
