I can tell you, these cookies are one of my new go-to recipes.
Let's take a look at how we prepare the vegan cookies with oats. Don't forget to take a look at the tips and substitution options.
After I thumbed your nose, I don't want to withhold from you what's in these great oat cookies. You can find the exact quantities below in the recipe card.
Dates or Raisins
Let's take a look at which ingredients you can exchange for the dairy-free oat cookies.
Sunflower seeds are full of healthy fats, we take advantage of these properties for the oil-free oat cookies, as we prepare them without oil or butter.
You can also use cashews instead of sunflower seeds. To do this, simply replace the same amount.
Instead of using maple syrup as a sweetener, you can also use date syrup or coconut sugar. Here you can take what you like best.
Dates are incredibly sweet and packed with nutrients. We take advantage of the property of sweetness and use it to sweeten the oat biscuits.
If you don't want dates, you can use other sweeteners as well.
The almond flour serves to prevent the dough from becoming too dry and tough. Almonds are full of healthy fats that help ensure the cookies get the right texture.
You can for example replace it with pumpkin seed flour, tiger nut flour, etc.
The almond milk serves as a milk alternative here. Of course, you can also replace the almond milk with other plant-based milk alternatives such as oat milk, soy milk or rice milk.
There are so many different diets. Here I would like to give you a few examples of how you can adapt the oat cookies so that you get for example Nut-free, gluten-free, cookies.
The vegan oat biscuits can be easily made nut-free, simply use a seed flour or a tiger nut flour.
In principle, the cookies are gluten-free. To be on the safe side, use oats that are certified gluten-free. Oats are gluten-free but are often processed in factories that process grains containing gluten.
Paleo and Keto
Since these are oat biscuits and oats are the main ingredient, I unfortunately cannot give you an alternative here. Paleo and Keto ban grain products. And thus these cookies.
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Start soaking the sunflower seeds and dates.
In the meantime, add the old fashioned rolled oats, oat flour and almond flour baking powder, baking soda to a mixing bowl.
In a high speed blender, blend the drained sunflower seeds and dates with water, maple syrup and almond milk until you get a creamy cream without pieces.
Pour the cream into the dry ingredients, add vanilla extract, lemon zest, cinnamon and optionally raisins or chopped dates and mix everything together until you get a homogeneous mass that just comes together. The dough should be more reminiscent of crumbs. If the dough is too moist for you, which may be depending on the oats and sweeteners, add a little more almond flour.
Put about 2 tbsp-sized large balls of dough on a baking sheet and press them flat. Let them stand for about 15 minutes. And bake the oat biscuits for about 15 minutes. Let the cookies cool on a wire rack.
Prepare in Advance
You can prepare the oat cookies up to 1-2 days in advance.
You can also prepare the dough the evening before and bake it fresh the next day.
Store the vegan oat cookies in the refrigerator for about 1 week. Put the biscuits in an airtight box.
You can also keep them at room temperature for about 4 days. To do this, place in an airtight container.
To freeze the biscuits, first freeze them on a tray in the freezer and then freeze them in portions in containers. That helps the cookies not stick together when frozen and you can always take the biscuits one by one.
If you can't find oat flour, use a high speed blender to grind oats into flour.
Do the same with almonds, if you can't find any ground almonds, then grind them to fine flour in a high speed blender.
You can also use quick oats instead of old fashioned rolled oats. However, the consistency will be a little different.
