Three big honey oat cookies leaning against a white tumbler.

Honey and Oat Cookies

These egg free and dairy free honey and oat cookies are a healthier spin on a childhood favourite, with whole wheat flour and a little ginger for kick. There's no added sugar here, just honey, and the cookies are chewy and soft.

  • 100 grams rolled oats
  • 40 grams whole spelt flour*
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 60 grams coconut oil, melted
  • 60 ml honey
  • 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cm fresh ginger grated (optional)***
  • Optional: 1/4 cup raisins chocolate chips, or sliced almonds (60g, 50g, 40g, in that order)


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (you may need two sheets if yours are small).
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and vanilla powder. Add the raisins or chocolate and the sliced almonds if you're using them.
  • In a smaller dish, whisk together the coconut oil, honey, milk, and ginger.
  • Add the honey mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to incorporate. If it seems too thin let it sit for five minutes to thicken up a little before shaping the cookies.
  • Place two tablespoons of the cookie dough onto the baking sheet and spread it out to about a 1 cm thickness with the back of a spoon. Repeat until all of the dough is used, leaving 6 cm (2 inches) between each cookie to allow for spreading.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Remove the pan from the oven and let the cookies cool on the pan for 10 minutes before carefully lifting them off with a spatula and letting them cool fully on a rack. Store in a sealed container for up to 3 days.



• Please note that in the video, my oven was running hot and the cookies baked too quickly, so they spread less. Still good!
