These soft and chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are dairy free and packed with fiber, making them easy to love and digest.
This oatmeal chocolate chip cookie has long been a favorite of my family and friends. I posted one of my classic version of this recipe on CooksAid over four years ago. Since then it has evolved to become even healthier, though still just as yummy!
If this cookie was in a box it would be labeled:
- 100% whole grain
- Reduced sugar
You could even make it without refined sugar by using sucanat or coconut sugar instead of brown sugar and granulated sugar.
Enjoy with a glass of regular or dairy-free milk…or treat yourself to a chocolate-almond milk-banana smoothie as pictured (delicious)! And let me know what you think!
If you are looking for a more indulgent oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, that is super-easy (throw all ingredients into a food processor) to make, give these a try: Oat-Chocolate Cookies.

- 1 cup sprouted spelt or white whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats

- Preheat oven to 350˚ F.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, oats, and pecans with a whisk.
- In a large bowl or standing mixer, beat oil and both sugars together for 30 seconds. Add egg and beat until smooth. Then mix in the applesauce and vanilla extract.
- Turn mixer to lowest setting and slowly add the flour-oatmeal mixture. Blend just to combine and then add the chocolate chips.
- Use two spoons to drop tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
