These healthier oatmeal cookies are made with whole wheat flour and oats. They’re just as delicious as your favorite chewy oatmeal cookies, but with healthier ingredients!



  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup whole grain oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine the sugar, oil, egg white, and vanilla together.
  3. Then add in the salt, baking soda, oats and flour and mix until combined.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Drop in rounded tablespoons onto a cookie sheet. I usually make about 10 medium sized cookies.
  6. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned.
  7. Let cool slightly, then transfer from the baking sheet to a cooling rack.


This makes a small batch of cookies, usually between 8-10 depending on the size of the cookies. You can double this recipe if you want to make a bigger batch!
