  • Mixing Bowl x 2
  • Electric Whisk
  • Baking Sheets and Paper


  • cups Oatmeal coarse
  • 6 tablespoon Brown Sugar soft
  • cup White sugar
  • ¾ cup Plain Flour or Gluten Free
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 100 g Butter vegan
  • 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • ½ tablespoon Ground Flaxseed whisked with 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Walnuts or pecans, coarsely chopped


  • Preheat oven to 180c.
  • In a bowl, sieve together the flour, salt and baking powder. Add 1 cup of the oatmeal and mix.
  • In a blender, process the white and brown sugars, along with remaining ¼ cup of the oatmeal, until fine.
  • In a large bowl using hand whisk or food mixer, blend butter and maple syrup. Then add the blended oatmeal/sugar mixture in two lots until blended. Add flax egg and vanilla, mix for another minute.
  • Incorporate the dry ingredients in two lots until thoroughly mixed, then, using a wooden spoon, fold in the chocolate chips and nuts. The mixture will be pretty stiff at this point.
  • Roll the mixture into balls, you can make them as large or as small as you like, I like to make them slightly smaller than golf balls. Place them onto a lined baking sheet and flatten them down. They won’t spread out much during baking, so again you can choose to make them as chunky or flat as you want.

  • Bake for between 10-12 minutes or until just turning light golden. Don’t overbake!
    Cool on a wire rack, then eat!
