Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are the perfect wholesome dessert made with lighter ingredients like coconut oil, rolled oats, and applesauce.

These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are a favorite of mine.

Soft, chewy, and perfectly sweet while not too sweet.

They are made with wholesome ingredients like coconut oil and rolled oats, and have a lot less junk than “regular” chocolate chip cookies.

They freeze like a dream, and are so fun to bake up fresh for a single serve dessert.

I frozen my extra batter in balls on wax paper and placed them in freezer safe ziploc bags.

Just remove how many cookies you want for dessert, and bake fresh from frozen!

These cookies are so soft that you can bake them straight out of the freezer without thawing and they will just be slightly crispy.

These were a LIFESAVER after our son was born! We would take a few out of the freezer each night and they were incredible.

I used a mixture of coconut oil, olive oil, and applesauce to add extra nutrition and softness to these cookies.

They are sweetened with organic cane sugar and sprinkled with dark chocolate chips, making for a sweet but not overly sweet cookie.

Hi, This cookie looks wonderful and I want to try it however I'm afraid to advertise it as "Gluten free" since you use wheat flour. Do you have a suggestion for another flour that would work?

Hi Rheta,

This cookie is not gluten free, and I have not tried substituting a gluten free flour, so I cannot guarantee results. Here is a link to a gluten free cookie recipe of mine that you may enjoy! https://buildyourbite.com/flourless-peanut-butter-oatmeal-chocolate-chip-cookies/
