When I first saw these photographs I said to Jaye: ‘Shouldn’t we redo these pictures? Not because of the photography, but because of the actual shape of the cookies, they look so homemade!’
And Jaye’s response was: ‘They look perfect! They remind me of the oatmeal cookies my grandmother used to make on the farm when I was a kid.’
So…. we didn’t redo the pictures, and here they are. My super dooper ‘homemade’ looking vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
I mean most of my recipes look ‘homemade’ – that’s exactly what they are after all! So there’s no shame in that, but now and again, I feel a bit awkward if it looks like it’s going a bit too far that way! But maybe in the case of oatmeal cookies, this is a good thing.
The taste was certainly spectacular!
This recipe was very closely based on my simple vegan oatmeal cookies recipe. I just added in chocolate chips (well, chunks for me, since I can’t get chocolate chips here so I just chop up a bar of vegan chocolate into chunks) and made a couple of small adjustments to the recipe to account for the chocolate chips.
Just as with the original recipe, this is a super easy, really straightforward recipe, with a very wholesome oatmeal, coconut, cinnamon, brown sugar delicious flavor and texture!
Adding in chocolate chips to get all melty in there makes this recipe just the bees knees!
You will love these vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! They are:
- Crunchy and soft at the same time
- Deliciously chewy
- Packed with chocolate chips
- Brown sugar sweetened
- Oatmeal and coconut textured
- Easy and fun
- Simply divine
You can keep them covered at room temperature, or covered in the fridge. I did not notice any drying out in the fridge, so long as they were covered. They stay fresh for up to a week.

- 1 and ½ cups (144g) Rolled Oats
- 1 cup (125g) All Purpose Flour
- 1 cup (80g) Dried (Dessicated) Coconut
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- ½ tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 cup (200g) Brown Sugar
- ½ cup (112g) Vegan Butter/Margarine
- 3 Tbsp Golden Syrup (or any syrup)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 Tbsp Soy Milk (or other non-dairy milk)
- 5.5 oz (~150g) Vegan Chocolate Chips or Chunks (divided)
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Add the rolled oats, all purpose flour, coconut, baking soda, salt and cinnamon to a mixing bowl and mix together.
- Cream the vegan butter and brown sugar together and then add the syrup and vanilla.
- Add the dry ingredients into the wet and stir until the mixture is very crumbly.
- Add the soy milk and mix in. You may need a little more or a little less, this will depend on the water content of your vegan butter or margarine. Add roughly two thirds of the chocolate chips, leaving about a third of them behind to place on top when they come out the oven. Check if you can roll some of the batter into a ball - it should be sticky enough to do so. If not, add a tiny bit more soy milk. Roll into balls, making sure that you get some chocolate chips into each ball and place the rolled balls onto a parchment lined baking tray.
- Bake for 15 minutes. The edges should be firm and the tops lightly browned. As soon as they come out the oven, press the remaining chocolate chips into the top of the cookies while they're still warm and soft.
- Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
*In the original recipe, we made the cookies much bigger so only got around 16-18 cookies per batch. This time we rolled them smaller, so got 30 cookies. It's up to you if you want to go with large cookies or smaller cookies, the recipe stays the same.
*You can bake these in two batches if you want to space them out on the baking tray so that they don't stick together while they're baking. We didn't - but our cookies did bake together and needed to be separated once cooled.
