Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies have crispy edges and a soft center. This 20 minute dessert is naturally sweetened, gluten free & vegan!
0.75 cup gluten free oat flour
0.75 cup gluten free rolled oats
0.75 teaspoon baking soda
0.25 teaspoon salt
0.25 cup maple syrup
0.25 cup coconut sugar
2 tablespoons almond butter (or other nut butter)
2 avocado oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
0.5 cup dark chocolate chunks (or chips)
2 teaspoons salt flakes
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients. In a second bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and stir well to combine. Add in the chocolate chunks and stir again.
Using a heaping tablespoon measure, roll the cookies into balls and line them up on a baking sheet, leaving 3 inches between each cookie. Gently press down on the cookies to make them into a flat cookie shape. Bake for 9 minutes and remove from the oven. Let them cool for 3 minutes on the baking tray and then transfer them to a wire cooling rack. Sprinkle them with salt flakes, if desired and serve.
