  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil room temperature
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup ground old fashioned oats * spoon and leveled (use certified gluten free, if necessary)
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats left whole (use certified gluten free, if necessary)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mix-ins raisins, craisins, dark chocolate chips/chunks, etc.


  • Whisk together flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to gel. This is our flax “egg”.
  • In your stand mixer, beat coconut oil and brown sugar together until combined.
  • Beat in vanilla and flax egg.
  • Beat in ground oats, whole oats, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  • Beat in chocolate chips.
  • Using a large cookie scoop, pack dough TIGHTLY into the scoop and turn out dough onto a silicone mat lined baking sheet - no more than 6 cookies on each baking sheet.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Press down onto each cookie dough ball using the heel of your hand (it takes a little pressure since the coconut oil firms up), until they slightly flatten on the top — they should be 1 inch thick.
  • Bake cookies in preheated oven until golden brown, about 8 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cookies sit for 10 minutes, or until firm.
  • Transfer to a wire cooling rack to let finish cooling or eat immediately!

*Make ground oats by placing about 2 cups old fashioned oats in your food processor. Grind until the oats resemble flour. Measure out 1 and 1/4 cups ground oats and resume with recipe!
