When you’re raiding your pantry to collect all you will need to make some vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, you might find you already have a lot of the items that this recipe calls for. It uses simple baking ingredients and leaves out the dairy and eggs. Here’s what you’ll need to get started on these cookies:

How to make Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Turn on the oven and let it preheat while you work. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, add the flour, oats, cinnamon, soda and salt and combine it using a wire whisk. In a larger bowl, add the butter and sugars and beat with an electric hand mixer until smooth. Next, add the vanilla and vinegar and beat once again.
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients along with the milk. Put some muscle into it-the dough will be thick! Once everything is well combined, stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop the cookie dough by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared pans. Place them in the oven and bake until the edges are just lightly browned, as they will firm up a lot while cooling.
Cool the cookies completely on the pan, then enjoy!
Top Tips for Making Vegan Cookies
- Use an electric Mixer: It might be tempting to just use a spoon to combine the wet ingredients instead of pulling out your mixer, but I recommend using one anyways! Beating the butter and sugars will help them to be really fluffy, improving the final texture of your cookies.
- Use your hands: Once you have everything mixed into the batter, the dough will be quite thick. I recommend using your hands to make sure everything gets mixed into it thoroughly.
- Don’t Overbake: Once you see the edges start to turn light brown, pull the cookies from the oven. This way, they will firm up while cooling but will still be soft and chewy in the middle!
Once you’ve finished baking your delicious vegan gluten free oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, it’s time to enjoy them! Whatever leftovers you have will store great in the fridge or freezer. I recommend storing these cookies in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week. In the freezer, they will last up to 3 months when sealed in an airtight container or freezer style ziploc bag.
