So, you know those times when you really need a cookie. These Small Batch Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies are made for those times. Crazy fast to whip together and no chill time means you can go from needing a cookie to eating a cookie in about 30 minutes flat. Did I mention these are naturally sweetened, gluten free, and made without any butter or oil?? I honestly shouldn’t even bring that up, because trust me – these are real deal cookies.
Make these cookies
The main ingredient in these cookies is nut butter. I used cashew butter, but feel free to sub in almond or peanut butter. Whichever one you choose, just make sure to choose a natural one, where the ingredients are just nuts and salt.
Combine the cashew butter with coconut sugar and an egg. When that mixture is well-combined, add the vanilla, baking soda, and cinnamon. Stir in the oats and shredded coconut, then finally the chocolate chunks. Scoop onto a baking sheet, and bake for 10 – 12 minutes. That’s all she wrote! No need to chill the dough!
Use naturally sweetened chocolate to make these completely free of refined sugar. I made my own with cocoa powder, raw honey, and cocoa butter – (recipe coming soon!). Or, simply chop up your favorite dark chocolate bar. If you’re not feeling chocolatey today, add in something else – like craisins or nuts. Or just bake them up without any add-ins. I promise they will be delicious 🙂
