Chocolate oatmeal cookies can be made a little healthier when they are sweetened with coconut flour. The family will love the dark and white chocolate chips. Cookies are one of my go-to foods when I want just a little sweetness. When you am trying to have a healthier alternative to processed store bought snacks making cookies from scratch are better for kids and all of us.
If you want another easy cookie that you can make for and with your kids, take a look at Easy Valentine’s Day Heart Shortbread Cookies Dipped In Chocolate.
Oatmeal is a great food for fiber and some even say it could reduce your cholesterol. For me, I know it is a simple pure food that adds nutrition to my family especially in cookies. Whenever I can I add oatmeal to my cookies so that while I am giving the kids and myself a sweet treat, I am boosting the fiber and nutrition.
Add White & Dark Chocolate Chips to a Basic Oatmeal Cookie with Coconut Flour
We all know that plain is not always a way to get our kids to eat, but adding the color difference in the white & dark chocolate chips adds fun and sweetness. I also always pick dark chocolate but you can pick milk and I would suggest to always pick the mini ones, to keep the fun, but not too much sugar.
Coconut Flour Adding Sweetness and Boosting Nutrition
I have been experimenting with Coconut flour as it is gluten and wheat free. We are not totally gluten free but again trying to add nutrition and a little fun with a different flavor. I made these cookies and took them to a dinner party at a restaurant (the restaurant does not have good desserts but we all like to play trivia there). You would have thought I had won a cooking contest and was named baker of the year. Everyone commented on how the coconut flour added that little something.
So I would say my plan succeeded, a little dessert that does not overdue, a little surprise with the coconut flavor, and a lot of extra nutrition even if let’s not forget they are cookies.
I halved the flour with half regular flour and half coconut flour. I am going to make these again and try all coconut flour and see if that lowers the gluten without affecting the taste.Print

Good timing – I just got a coconut flour and it’s been a while since I haven’t made cookies with oats. Your recipe sounds amazing and the cookies look so good! Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday party! I hope you’ll have time to visit others, too! 🙂 x
What a great recipe- I have never used coconut flour but I love how it adds natural sweetness~ Thanks so much for sharing with Friday Frenzy!
We use coconut flour (& oat flour) in lots of baking but find it gives a crumblier bake than something like cassava flour, rice flour or quinoa flour. These cookies look delicious. Thanks for bringing them to Fiesta Friday.
