This recipe is always a hit among kids and adults; it's significantly lower in fat and cholesterol than traditional butter-laden (and even margarine-laden!) varieties, but it makes the kind of cookie that you want with a cup of dairy-free cocoa or tea.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup flour (all-purpose)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 cup
  • powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 large eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups
  • dark dairy-free chocolate chips

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, powdered sugar, baking soda and salt.
  3. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the canola oil, eggs, lemon juice and vanilla extract until combined.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing until just combined.
  5. Fold in the dark dairy-free chocolate chips.
  1. Drop the mixture on the prepared sheet with a spoon, spacing the cookies about 2 inches from one another.
  2. Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until lightly golden brown around the edges.
  3. Let cool on a wire cooling rack and serve warm or at room temperature.
