What You Need to Make These Sugar-Free Oatmeal Cookies

To make these healthy oatmeal cookies, you’ll need:

Flax meal
If you’re trying to go egg-free in baking, flax ‘eggs’ can be a good substitute. It’s basically just flax meal and water or milk.

Non-dairy Milk
I use unsweetened organic soy milk for these cookies, but you may use other non-dairy milk you have on-hand.

Unsalted Butter
You can make a dairy-free version of this recipe by opting for a non-dairy butter substitute such as this.

Sugar-Free Sweetener
To make it sugar-free, I use erythritol as my sweetener. You may use other sugar substitutes such as monk fruit, stevia, or sugar substitutes blend.

Almond Flour
Almond flour is one of the best flours I’ve tried for baking. I’ve done a lot of wonderful baked creations with it like this.

Gluten-Free Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
There’s a difference in texture between quick-cooking oats and old-fashioned rolled oats. For this recipe, you will need the old-fashioned variety. I love using Nature Path’s Gluten-Free variety.

Baking Powder
Like any other baked goods, baking powder is used for this recipe to add volume and lighten the texture of the cookies.

A small amount of salt will be needed to bring out the flavor of the ingredients.

Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips
If I don’t have homemade chocolate chunks in the fridge, I love using these sugar-free chocolate chips.

How to Make These Oatmeal Cookies

Step 1. Make the flax ‘egg.’
To make the flax ‘egg,’ simply mix the flax meal and the non-dairy milk together. Let it set for at least 5 minutes.

Step 2. Cream the butter and sweetener together.
Using a handheld mixer, cream the softened butter and sweetener together until you achieve a homogenous mixture.

Step 3. Add the flax egg to the butter-sweetener mixture. Mix well.

Step 4. Add the dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips/chunks to the wet ingredients.

Step 5. Fold in the chocolate chips/chunks.

Step 6. Scoop the batter into the prepared baking pan.
Bake at 325F for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

Step 7. Let it cool completely before serving or storing.
