Flourless Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are ready on your table in 25 minutes! These healthy cookies are made of rolled oats, honey, almond butter, coconut, eggs and chocolate chips.
If you are looking for a recipe for oatmeal cookies without flour and sugar, you are at the right place.
Flourless chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are made with rolled oats and instead of adding refined sugar, honey is used.
I don’t have another healthy cookies recipe on the blog but I have a few other treats you might like:
- Dark Chocolate Beet Brownies
- Chocolate Covered Dates
- Avocado Chocolate Mousse
- And if you are left with some oats, make super Homemade Granola! It’s packed with nutrients and it’s a hundred times better than the store-bought ones.
How to make flourless chocolate chip oatmeal cookies?
First, process the oats in a food processor – don’t turn them into meal. Just pulse several times to break them into smaller pieces.
Get a bowl that is large enough to hold all the ingredients. A medium-size bowl will be fine. Throw all the ingredients in altogether with the oats and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined.
Note that if you have coconut oil in solid form, you need to melt it first.
Roll this mixture into balls and place them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Using the back of a spoon or measuring cup, press each ball down to form a cookie.
Bake them in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes.
Can I make these flourless chocolate chip oatmeal cookies without eggs?
You can make them egg-free but read the following before you try:
To substitute the eggs, add extra almond butter. In this case it would be about 6 tablespoons. Now because you are substituting the eggs for something different, you have to bear in mind that the texture of your eggless flourless chocolate chip oatmeal cookies will also change.
They will be soft when you take them out from the oven so they need to be cooled down completely before you can enjoy them. If you try to transfer them before they are completely cooled, they will fall apart.
They also tend to crumble a lot so eating them can get pretty messy.
I also recommend reducing the amount of honey to 1 tablespoon as the extra almond butter used is sweet enough to flavor them.
Now that being said, they are delicious with or without the eggs but they hold their form better with eggs.

- Take them out and let them cool down.

- Desiccated coconut can be substituted with shredded coconut (Desiccated coconut is dried than shredded coconut).
- If you omit almond butter your cookies will turn out drier.
