Are oatmeal cookies healthy?

Oatmeal cookies are one of the healthiest cookie choice ever. Oats is among the most nutrient-dense foods with 13 grams of protein and 8 g fiber per 100 gram. Therefore, oatmeal cookies are great fulfilling cookies to start the day or refuel after a workout.

Is oat gluten-free?

The answer is no, oat is not gluten free. However, research shows that most people with celiac disease can tolerate oats. The research shows that the main reason why people reacts to oats is a contamination issue. In fact, most oat facilities also process wheat, barley, and rye. That is why gluten-free oats, also known as non-contaminated or pure oats is safe for most people with gluten-intolerance and often tolerated by people with celiac disease.

Liquid ingredients

Dry ingredients


  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, slightly oil the paper if your paper tend to stick to food. Set aside.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, add all the liquid ingredients: peanut butter, maple syrup, melted coconut oil and vanilla.
  • Microwave 30 seconds to soften peanut butter then combine with a spatula until it forms a consistent shiny batter. It shouldn't take you more than 1 minute.
  • Stir in rolled oats, almond flour and baking powder.
  • Combine until it forms a cookie dough, it gets drier as you go. Stir in chocolate chips if used and keep stirring to incorporate.
  • Shape a cookie dough ball. If too dry or crumbly, add a splash of water (think 1 tablespoon max.) to gather ingredients together. This could happen if you used almond meal instead of almond flour. It contains more fiber and can dry out cookie dough.
  • Cut the dough into 8 even parts. Roll each part into ball between your hands.
  • Place each cookie dough balls onto the cookie sheet you prepared before. Leave a thumb space between each cookie. They won't expand while baking but you need some space to flatten the cookies and ensure they don't touch each others for consistent baking.
  • Press each cookie dough ball with your fingers to flatten
  • If the sides crumbles, slightly, use your fingers to soften the edges – see video for tips and tricks.
  • Bake at 180°C (350°F) for 12-14 minutes or until the sides are golden.
  • Cool 10 minutes on the cookie sheet then transfer onto a cooling rack. Slide a spatula under each cookie to careful carry them from the tray to the cooling rack.
  • Wait until fully cool down to enjoy. They get crispier with time.


  • Store up to 3 weeks in a cookie jar in the pantry, at room temperature. Don't store in the fridge or they will soften. Can be frozen in an airtight zip bag and defrosted the day before.


  • Make sure you are using rolled oats and not jumbo oats. Rolled oats also known as porridge oats is crushed jumbo oats.

    Hi there! I tried these cookies and they were delicious. The only thing I changed is that I replaced the chocolate chips by pecans. Thank you for this great recipe, it will become a regular in my house (my kids loved them!).

      Excellent recipe, so easy to make with simple, natural ingredients. Fabulous energy boosters before or after a workout, and they also satisfy my (frequent) sugar cravings! I make a large batch to freeze every so often, then take 5 out at the start of the week for work. So handy!
