Choc Chip Cookies | Vegan + Refined Sugar Free

I was searching far and wide for the perfect version of this recipe, until I gave up and created my own.

You see, I can be a little fussy with ingredients.

The moment I think I’ve found something, I’ll skim through the ingredients only to find I need to add an unnecessary amount of sugar to the mix.

It’s not that I’m anti refined sugars. Please understand this. I’m not really anti any kind of food – meat and dairy products included, despite my preference over a good vegan recipe.

I would just rather use ingredients I am more comfortable with. When it comes to added sweetness for me, this usually comes from maple syrup or even fruits – products where it is usually naturally occurring.

I won’t get into a debate about it and I don’t feel like I need to justify it to anyone. It’s simply my own personal taste and therefore preference. I don’t think anyone should have to justify that.

Let me have my maple syrup in my cookies.

Let them eat cake.

1 cup oats (I used Dad’s Oats – the Quick variety)

1 tsp bi carb soda

1 tsp salt

1/4 cup + 1 tbsp coconut oil (melted, cooled)

2 – 3 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup vegan choc chips (I used Sweet William)


1. Preheat oven to 180 Celsius and line one large oven tray with baking paper.

2. In a mixing bowl, add all dry ingredients and combine well.

3. Add wet ingredients to dry mixture and combine well.

4. Form cookies on baking paper and pop in the oven. They shouldn’t take too long, but just keep an eye on them after about 10 – 15 minutes until they’re browned to your liking.
