  • 1 cup dairy-free butter, softened (two sticks)
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dairy free butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract, beating again until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  4. Add in the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt over the rest of the mixture. Give the top ingredients a stir, then stir all the ingredients to combine.
  5. Fold in the oats, chocolate chips, and walnuts.
  6. Portion the cookie dough onto your prepared baking sheets, using a heaping tablespoon (you’ll need to work in batches – all the cookies won’t fit on two baking sheets).
  7. Place the baking sheets in the oven (on the center rack and upper-center rack if your heating source is on the bottom). Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until a light golden-brown color.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool fully on the baking sheet. When fully cooled, enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • This recipe makes 48 cookies using a heaping tablespoon, but will make less if using a larger cookie size.
  • You can use raisins or dried cranberries in place of the chocolate chips if you prefer.
  • Do not remove the cookies from the baking sheet until fully cooled, or they will crumble and will not hold their form.
