Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 1 dozen cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax + 2 tbsp water)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup peanut butter (use sunflower seed butter for nut-free option)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1½ cups oat flour
  • ½ cup chocolate chunks
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silplat mat or parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the flax and water and set aside to thicken (about 10 minutes).
  3. In a large bowl, add coconut oil, peanut butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Mix the ingredients until very smooth.
  4. Add in the baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix again until combined. Add in the oat flour and flax egg, and mix again.
  5. Finally, add in the chocolate chunks and stir by hand. Make sure everything is combined very well. Add a bit of plant milk if your batter is too dry, a tablespoon at a time.
  6. Roll batter into 12 large balls, place them on your prepared baking sheet, and press down gently on each ball, with the palm of your hand, to flatten.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.
Notes
*Use sunflower seed butter to make these cookies nut-free.
*Add a tablespoon or two of plant milk (almond, hemp, soy, etc.) to your batter if it is too dry to roll into balls.

To make oat flour: Take 1½ cups rolled oats and add to your food processor. Process until the oats resembles flour. 1½ cups rolled oats = 1½ cups oat flour.
