Tips to make your favorite nut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

  • These cookies work with most all nut butters. 
  • Nut butters have varying consistency from smooth drippy (almond butter) to thick peanut butter. If the nut butter is too thick/stiff keep it outside to come to room temperature before using.
  • Depending on the nut butter consistency you will need a few tbsp more or less flour in the dough. The dough maybe soft or slightly stiff. If it starts to feel too stiff, add in sprinkles of non dairy milk or oil to make it easier to handle. 
  • Bake time depends on the oven, nut butter and your preference of crisp, soft texture. Play around with each batch to find the right time to bake all the next batches!

Ingredients 
 

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp warmed non dairy milk, , such as almond, soy or coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats, , use certified gluten-free if needed
  • 3/4 cup flour, , I use a mix of all purpose and wheat. Use Oat flour or gf blend for glutenfree
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips, , use dried fruit like raisins, currants, blueberries or cranberries for no chocolate

Instructions 

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment. Preheat the oven to 350 deg F ( 180 C) 
  • Mix the peanut butter, maple, warmed non dairy milk and vanilla until smooth. it will take a minute to combine. (The warm milk will help the nut butter mix in more easily).
  • Mix the baking soda and salt into 1/2 cup flour. Add the mixed flour and oats to the nut butter bowl and mix well. Add spices such as cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice if you wish
  • Add more flour if the mixture is too sticky. Depends on the flour and the nut butter. I need 2 to 4 tbsp more * .Fold in the chocolate chips. 
  • Bring the dough together. Use a 1.5 tbsp cookie scooop and scoop onto parchment lined baking sheet. 
  • Press each scoop down to flatten. Add some chocolate chips on top if needed.
  • Bake at 350 F for 12 to 14 mins, longer for crispier. Cool for 5 mins, then remove from the pan and cool completely.
    Store on the counter for upto 5 days. Refrigerate for freshness for upto 2 weeks. 

Notes

Use other nut butters for variation such as cashew butter, almond butter, pecan butter, hazelnut butter. 
For nut-free make these Sunbutter Oatmeal Cookies. 
 
*Many nut-butters have added oils in them so the flour amount needed will depend on that. If the dough is getting too stiff, add sprinkles of nondairy milk or oil to help make it a smooth soft dough.

    I made this on Mother’s day for my mother in law and she and the whole family absolutely loved it. I didn’t have Vanilla extract, so I skipped it but it still tasted great. Thank you.

    WOW! I live in a university dorm and I just made these by eyeballing all the measurements and put them in the oven without preheating and they still turned out AMAZING! Now to try and not eat them all at once…

  5. Ovi says:

    I recently discovered you, thank you so much for all the recipes that you shared.
    I really like this receipe recipe, simple and tasty.
    After one day, the cookies are started to get softer. Is it expected or did I do something wrong?

    1. Richa says:

      it depends on the nut butter. Bake it a bit longer for crispier and they should not soften.

  6. Tanya says:

    Hi! I would love to make these but I don’t have maple syrup. What can I use instead? and how much of the substitute would I need to put in. Thanks so much!

    1. Richa says:

      Use the same amount of sugar and add another tbsp non dairy milk.

  8. Vlad says:

    Killer recipe. I used spelt flour and Trader Joe’s crunchy P-nut butter. Their butter is made from blanched p-nuts and no other added crap. Also threw in some whole organic sesame seeds to add crunch. Thanks for the inspiration. wallace
