  • ¾ cups rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour (you can substitute gluten-free flour)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter (you can substitute a non-dairy margarine)
  • 2 tablespoons skim milk (you can substitute a non-dairy milk)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk chocolate chips (you can substitute non-dairy chocolate chips)


  • Preheat the oven to 350F/180C and stir all the ingredients together in a medium-sized bow. If the cookie dough feels a little dry, add more milk 1 teaspoon at a time until it takes on a strong enough consistency so you can roll the dough into balls.
  • Evenly divide the cookie dough into 12 pieces and roll each one into a ball. Line a baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and lay the balls out onto the lined baking tray. Press each ball down slightly with your palm to create a more cookie-like shape. These cookies don't spread very much.
  • Bake the cookies for 14 minutes until they just begin to brown. Leave to cool on the baking tray (they'll carry on cooking a little longer on the tray) until they reach room temperature.
