Description

Healthy and delicious overnight oats…in cookie form! Soft, cakey, and not too sweet, they are vegan, gluten-free, and oil-free.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (250 mL) nondairy milk (I used almond milk)
  • 2 tablespoons (18 g) coconut sugar (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon (16 g) creamy nut butter (e.g., almond butter, peanut butter)
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (certified gluten-free, as needed)
  • 1/3 cup dried fruit, finely chopped, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the milk, coconut sugar, nut butter, flaxseed meal, cinnamon, vanilla, and sea salt until blended.
  2. Stir in the oats. Reserve 1 and 1/2 tablespoons dried fruit. Add the remaining dried fruit to bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to 12 hours (the liquid will be absorbed and the mixture firm).
  3. Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Lightly spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  4. Stir the oats to loosen; add the baking powder and vigorously stir to blend.
  5. Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop the dough in small mounds, spacing 2 inches apart, on prepared sheet.  Sprinkle the reserved fruit bits on top of cookies.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 11 to 13 minutes until cookies have spread, are golden brown, and the centers are set.
  7. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool on sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Notes

Storage: The cookies will keep, without refrigeration, while transporting on the go. However, they are best stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or the freezer for up to 6 months.

Tip: The flaxseed meal can be replaced with an equal amount of ground chia seeds.
