PREP TIME 10 mins

COOK TIME 10 mins

TOTAL TIME 20 mins

Serves: 18 cookies

Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 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
  • Optional: coarse sea salt
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.
  5. Chill the dough for at least one hour.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. 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.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.
  9. Remove and allow to stay on the baking sheet for another 2 minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack.
