The Best Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

The Best Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

Hot fresh oatmeal cookies that are soft and chewy make for a great snack or even breakfast.  They are loaded with nutrients and antioxidants and can be made even better with tasty ingredients such as: nuts, dried fruits, seeds, chocolate chips, or whatever you can come up with!

Oatmeal Cookies

With the proper substitutions these can be made:

  • Dairy free
  • Vegan
  • Gluten free
  • Nut free
  • Sugar free

Yields: About 10 cookies

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook time: 12 Minutes

  • 1/3 cup softened butter (can use plant based vegan butter)
  • 1 cup erythritol (or similar sugar free sweetener)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg (or vegan egg substitute)
  • 1 cup gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups instant or quick oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup mix-ins: dried fruits, nuts, sugar free chocolate chips, seeds, etc...


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Combine butter, vanilla, cinnamon, and sweetener in a mixing bowl and cream together to create a wet sand texture
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix again to form a cookie dough
  4. Scoop onto baking sheet and flatten by hand
  5. Bake for 12-13 minutes, let it rest for 5 minutes, then enjoy soft chewy oatmeal cookies!


These are best eaten right away, but can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week.  I prefer to reheat leftover cookies in the microwave for 15 seconds to freshen them up.
