Vegan Oatmeal & Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies


Jim really loves his sweets- me being the sweetest of course 😉

Any who, he decided late last night that coming up with a new vegan cookie recipe was a good idea after an utterly exhausting weekend. I was ready to pass out, but he went ahead and found this recipe, that he followed pretty closely to make, quite possibly, the most delicious vegan cookies I’ve ever had. I don’t feel bad about eating them for breakfast either because they’re mostly oats, and come on, oatmeal is a morning food. So good and very proud of Jim’s rising baking skills.

2 cups rolled oats

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

3/4 cup raw sugar

1/2 cup olive oil

1 ripe banana, mashed

2/3 cup vegan chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 tsp pure vanilla

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp nutmeg

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix together banana, sugar, oil, vanilla until creamy
  • Stir together oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and sea salt
  • Pour dry ingredients into banana mix 1 cup at a time, until everything is absorbed
  • Fold in pecans and chocolate chips
  • Mold into cookies and bake at 350 degrees for 11 minutes
