Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the rolled oats, flour, cinnamon, coconut, flaxseed meal, salt, and baking soda.

In a medium bowl, use a beater to cream the vegan butter and sugar together. Once incorporated, add vanilla extract and agave nectar. Stir until combined.

Combine sugar-butter mixture with the dry ingredients and mix well. Vegan butter brands have different moisture content, therefore, add up to 1 tablespoon of water until dough holds together.

Avoid eating all the cookie dough and let the dough rest for 15 minutes.

Take two tablespoons of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Place onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until you have used up all the cookie dough.

Bake for 14-18 minutes or until edges are just brown. Let cool on the pan for 2 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack.
