Vanilla Almond Butter Oatmeal Cookies

By Sunday, January 05, 2014 , , , , ,

I created these bites of heaven when I was craving a cookie, but I had no proper ingredients in my house. These cookies only have 6 ingredients, and they pass the taste test of both my family and I.

These are soft centred and wholesome cookies, packed with protein and fibre and the sweet flavour of vanilla. They make your house smell incredible when they're baking and they're delicious too!



Makes 8 cookies

You will need:

1 cup oats
1/2 cup raw almond butter
1/4 cup almond milk
2-3 tbsps maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder

Optional extras: Cacao nibs, dark chocolate chunks, goji berries, nuts, dried fruit

Preheat the oven to 180C and mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. It should make quite a gooey and sticky cookie dough. If you like, you can also add in some optional extras like superfoods powders, nuts, seeds, etc. Shape into 8 even balls on a lined baking tray and flatten with the back of a fork, then bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top. These will keep in a sealed container for 3-5 days

  2. Absolutely loved this recipe - I subbed the almond butter for equal amounts peanut butter, tahini and cashew butter and it was so good! Also snuck some dark choc on top :-)

  4. Do you blend the oats into a flour or use them as they are?

  8. I used the suggestions above and used equal parts tahini, almond butter, peanut butter and cashew butter to make 1/4 cup. I also added some raisins and just used 2 tbsp of maple syrup and they were divine!! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!

  10. Could you use honey instead of maple syrup as I've ran out of syrup. And which brand of cacao powder do you use. These look so yummy. You're so amazing honestly and are an inspiration to me as I'm recovering from anorexia and you and your recipes are inspiring me to try new things and cook myself new meals so thank you xxx

  12. I have been following you on Instagram for a while and learning about all the ingredients you use and this is the first time I actually make one of your recipes. I'm not vegan, gluten intolerant or anything like that.. I just love to eat and I enjoy it even more when I'm eating healthy but sometimes is hard to find recipes that actually taste good. These cookies are great! I added the dark chocolate chunks, coconut flakes and pecans and they taste really good! I can't wait to try your buckwheat bread and all those pastas and yummy things you post. I literally went to the supermarket the other day with a list of some of the ingredients you use because I'm not to familiar with them but I'm learning and so excited to try them all. The effort and dedication you put in your posts is admirable. Thanks a lot!!! :D
