  • 3 cups rolled oats

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips (such as Callebaut®)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Combine oats and almond milk in a bowl and let soak for 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, sift together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, and sea salt in a bowl.

  4. Cream together coconut oil, honey, and sugar in a large bowl using an electric mixer. Add eggs and vanilla extract; stir. Stir in oat and flour mixtures. Fold in dark chocolate chips.

  5. Place cookies by spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 12 to 15 minutes.

You can use vanilla almond milk instead of unsweetened, margarine instead of coconut oil, lightly packed brown sugar instead of Sucanat(R), and carob chips instead of dark chocolate chips if desired.
