Oat Almond Chocolate Chunk Cookies and Cookie Mix in a Jar. Glutenfree Oilfree Vegan recipe

Print Friendly and PDF
What I like about these chocolate chunk cookies.... are the Dark Dark Chocolate chunks.. Those chunks of delicious dark chocolate, of different sizes, lots of them, make this one amazing cookie. Unlike evenly shaped chocolate chips, the uneven chunks mean that  there is more chocolate and well distributed chocolate in every cookie. The smaller chunks hide inthe dough and the bigger chunks give that burst of chocolate. Ohh Chocolate.

Just 5 main ingredients.. Oats, Almonds, raw sugar, Chocolate chunks and almond milk.




This easy cookie can be converted into a Cookie mix in jar. With all that chocolate, it has to be on this year's gift list. Layer the ground Oats, Chocolate chunks, ground sugar, almond flour and you are done. I mix in the baking powder and spices, if using any, into the Oat flour. So what should I call them Oat Almond Chocolate chunk or Almond Oat chocolate chunk or just Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies:)


More Cookies from the blog here. Almost all can easily be converted into a Mix in a jar too. Are we ready for Holiday season yet!




How many chunks can a Chocolate chunk cookie have.. 



Chewie is doing well today. Yesterday, I gave him Hypericum Perforatum 6c(Homeopathy pill version of St Johns wort) and some Benadryl to help him relax. He was keeping himself too stiff and I think yelping out of anxiety with even a tiny bit of pain. With all that, and late morning and  afternoon naps, he was walking fine and yelping only in certain positions. By the evening, he had forgotten everything and wanted to play fetch.. duh. thank you everyone for sending good wishes. 



The below cookies are made from scratch, with extra chocolate chunks. 

All the other pictures are cookies from cookie mix in a jar.



More Chocolate! Or substitute it with dried cranberries:)


Steps for Cookie Mix in a Jar:


Empty the jar in a bowl, mix it with a few strokes.




Add almond milk or non dairy milk. Mix, press down, mix/knead lightly into a dough.(2-3 minutes, 
so that some of the oil from the almonds gets mixed in, hence eliminating the need for added oil)



Chill the dough for 15 minutes.

Shape into flat cookies.



Bake for 17-18 minutes depending on the size of the cookies.

Done.

Ingredients:

From Scratch Cookie:
1/4 cup almond milk
3 Tablespoons raw sugar (Use 4 Tbsps or 1/4 cup for sweeter)
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup raw almond flour(I grind my own almonds, so they are usually coarsely ground)
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup Oat flour(certified glutenfree if needed)
spices of choice(I did not add any)
1/3-1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

Dry Cookie Mix for the jar:

3/4 teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt mixed in 1 cup Oat flour
1/2 cup ground raw almond
1/3-1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
3-4 Tablespoons ground raw sugar
spices if using

Method:

From scratch cookie:
In a bowl, Mix the baking powder, salt, finely ground raw sugar. almond flour into the Oat flour.
Add almond milk to the Oat flour and mix well for 2 minutes(so some of the oils from the almonds gets mixed in) to form a stiff, very slightly sticky dough.
Add the chocolate chunks, as many or as little as you want and combine well into the dough.
If the dough is too dry and doesnt come together, add a teaspoon or so more almond milk.
Chill the dough for 10-15 minutes.
Take dough out and make balls and flatten them.
Bake in preheated 350 degrees F for 17 minutes. (a minute or so longer for larger cookies)
Cool for a minute. Devour.

When ready to bake, Dump the contents in a bowl, mix with a few strokes.

If you like chewier cookies add 2-3 teaspoons virgin coconut or organic canola oil along with the almond milk. If the dough is too dry and doesnt come together, add a teaspoon or so more almond milk.
Cover the bowl and chill the dough for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
Shape into balls and then flatten, place on parchment lined sheet.

  15. Wow, these were really good and simple to make. I accidentally doubled the recipe (realized I had put a whole cup of almond meal instead of 1/2 cup so had to double everything else.) Since I had so much dough I made the first batch without oil and then added a teaspoon of oil to the second batch. Both were really yummy. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I think it's going to be a standard in our house. :-)

  16. Hello :)

    Can you give me any advice to change oat for something else? I am thinking of millet flakes. Do you think is it a good idea to change oat for millet flakes?

    Thank you :)

    1. you can use millet flour. the amount of liwuid needed might change a bit. add enough to get a stiffi-ish, slightly sticky dough and proceed with the baking,
