Oat Flour Chocolate Chunk Cookies

by: claire cary

These oat flour cookies are soft, chewy and so easy to make. They're naturally gluten free, filled with chocolate chunks and can be made refined sugar free.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 15 mins
Chill Time 1 hr
Total: 1 hr 25 mins



  • ½ cup softened butter dairy free or regular
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 2 ¼ cups oat flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks*


  • Add the softened butter to a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer with both sugars.
  • Beat together until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  • Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  • Beat in the dry ingredients aside from the chocolate. Be sure to spoon and level the flour, don't scoop from the bag.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips or chunks.
  • Add the dough to the fridge for 1 hour.
  • During the final few minutes, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Use a large cookie scoop (about 2 1/2-3 tablespoons) and scoop the dough into balls.
  • Press on a few extra chocolate chunks on top. Bake for 12-16 minutes or until just golden brown around the edges.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool before serving. Sprinkle with salt flakes and enjoy!


I like to chop up a chocolate bar and use 1 cup of that instead of buying chocolate chunks. This way, you get some of different sizes. 
I have not tested these oat flour cookies without egg, but since there is only one in the recipe, I imagine a flax egg or even apple sauce would be fine. If using apple sauce, use 3 tablespoons or make 1 flax egg with 1 tablespoon of ground flax with 3 tablespoons of water.
