Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are just the best – especially when paired with an iced coffee. Back when I lived in New York, that was my favorite indulgent snack on a Friday afternoon in the office. Buttery, crispy, chocolate-y goodness plus the bittersweet taste of an iced latte!

At home, I like to bake with alternative flours like almond flour, millet flour, oats, etc. to add some nutritional value. I decided to come up with an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe – but this time I wanted to make it eggless (with a vegan option, too). I’ve never experimented with flax eggs but was pleasantly surprised! It turns out it isn’t so difficult to grind up a tablespoon of flaxseeds in a blender. It held the cookie dough together perfectly; you wouldn’t even guess that it was made without eggs. These cookies come out well with coconut oil or butter – I found that everyone at home enjoyed the butter version of the cookies more as the flavor of coconut in baked goods can be overpowering to non-vegans. You can even make the recipe with half butter and half coconut oil if you prefer.

Now, who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?
