Vegan oatmeal cookies, chewy, sweet, and delicious. They only require 8 ingredients and are way healthier than regular cookies. Just need 30 minutes!


  • ½ cup vegan butter (110 g), softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar (200 g)
  • 1 and ½ cups oats (120 g), I used quick oats
  • 1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour (190 g)
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF or 180ºC. 
  2. Add the vegan butter and sugar to an electric mixer bowl and beat until light and fluffy. You could also use a regular large bowl and a hand mixer. 
  3. Incorporate all the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
  4. If your dough is too sticky, refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes.
  5. Now it’s time to make the cookies! I used a cookie scoop, but feel free to use a regular spoon or even your hands. Fill the scoop with dough and just press and release onto a lined baking sheet. Place them evenly onto the baking sheet, about 2 inches apart from each other (about 5 cm)
  6. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the cookies are lightly golden brown. They will be soft when they come out of the oven but will firm up as they cool.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature with a cup of turmeric latte, matcha latte, or golden milk, or even with a glass of oat milk, soy milk, rice milk, cashew milk, almond milk, or hemp milk.
  9. Store them in an airtight container for about 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.


  • You could also use coconut oil (softened, but not melted) instead of vegan butter.
  • Any type of sugar and oats will do.
  • I’ve never made this recipe with a different type of flour, but I believe it would work, so use gluten-free flour if needed.
