  • 150 g Oats [of choice]
  • 125 g All-purpose flour
  • 80 g Desiccated coconut
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 200 g Brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract or essence
  • 2 tablespoon Dairy-free milk [of choice]
  • 125 g Banana


  • Preheat the oven to 325 F (170 C).
  • Mix the quick or rolled oats, desiccated coconut, flour, and brown sugar together in a bowl.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, mash the banana (or substitute with vegan butter).
  • Add the wet ingredients (banana, vanilla extract, and dairy-free milk) to the dry ingredients (rolled oats, coconut, flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda) and, using your hands, mix well until you obtain a sticky cookie dough.
  • OPTIONAL: At this stage add any extra toppings you may wish to use.
  • Roll the cookie dough into a sausage shape and cut it into 15 thick vegan oatmeal cookies.
  • Line the cookies onto the tray covered with the prepared baking sheet and bake in the center of the oven for 12 to 14 minutes.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely on a cooling rack before enjoying.


  • These cookies can be stored in a sealed container for up to one week.
Tips and tricks
  • Should you wish to make this recipe gluten-free, then ensure the oats used are certified gluten-free and substitute the all-purpose flour with gluten-free flour.
  • If you are adding chocolate chips and still want the recipe to be vegan, ensure these are certified vegan.
  • Quick or rolled oats will give slightly different end results, with the rolled ones offering a chewier and heartier flavor, compared to the others [which will be softer].
  • If adding many add-ons [hello vegan oatmeal raisin cookies!], make sure to balance out the sugar level, by reducing it if necessary.
