  • 2 1/2 cups gluten free oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 oz your favorite dark chocolate bar, coarsely chopped
  • coarse sea salt, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. To make oat flour: Place oats in blender and blend on high until oats become a super fine consistency similar to flour. You made need to shake the blender a few times to get it to come together. Alternatively you can use store-bought oat flour.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together your homemade oat flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate large bowl combine coconut oil, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until well combined, smooth and creamy. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until it forms a dough. Gently fold in chocolate chunks.
  4. Using a cookie scoop, drop cookies onto a baking sheet. I always like to test bake a cookie to see how it bakes up. If it's too thin for you, add 1/4 cup more oat flour. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cookies are slightly golden brown on the edges. Remove from oven, immediately sprinkle with sea salt and let cool on the cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes then remove and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Recipe Notes

To make these dairy free, use a dairy free chocolate bar.

For additional flavor and texture, add in 1/3 cup shredded coconut flakes.

Try out coconut sugar instead of dark brown for healthier cookie!
