Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

oatmeal chocolate chip cookies
Yvonne Ruperti

These chewy, coconut oatmeal cookies are bursting with chocolate chips (and they're vegan too!)

Notes: You can purchase vegan chocolate chips online or look for high quality dark chocolate that doesn't contain dairy or animal products and then chop it into chunks. For example, Dandelion Chocolate's single origin bars are made from just cacao and sugar.

Whole wheat flour can replace 1/4 cup of the all-purpose flour.
