One Bowl Vegan Oatmeal Cookies with Sea Salt

These one bowl vegan oatmeal cookies are perfect with crunchy sea salt, or bling them out with chocolate chips, shredded coconut and nuts! 

Since I’ve made these cookies three times since I first created the recipe not even a month ago, I suppose it’s about time I share the recipe.

I knew these cookies were a winner the first time I sunk my teeth into the soft, caky cookie, just a few minutes out of the oven. But I didn’t realize how good they were until a couple weeks ago when the hubs and I threw an impromptu party for the Clemson vs. Auburn game. I didn’t have a ton of time to cook, so I served the rest of a batch of these. My friends were raving about them, something I didn’t expect for a gluten free and vegan cookie.

The best part about these cookies? You can make them entirely in the food processor or one big mixing bowl if you already have oat flour made! Like, hardly any cleanup at all.

The following is the basic recipe for these cookies. Feel free to stir in any mix-ins you like. Chocolate chips, shredded coconut and nuts are all smart life decisions. But really, I think I might prefer the plain version with just a sprinkle of crunchy salt mixed throughout.
