Cookies can be controversial. Are you team soft and gooey, team chewy, or team crunchy? If I HAVE to pick just one kind, I’m team soft and gooey, all the way. These chocolate chip cookies are my favorite classic recipe, and holy shit these are my favorite cookie recipe EVER.

But honestly, I think there’s plenty of room in the cookie jar for all different types of cookies. Growing up I was pretty in love with oreos (which are vegan!), and you really can’t go wrong with a super chewy, sweet cookie.

Today, we’re talking about some super chewy cookies. While I love a gooey, soft, rich cookie, there’s something so satisfying about a really chewy cookie full of amazing, oat-y texture. These vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are everything you want in a chewy sweet treat, and you only need three ingredients.

THREE!

We’re keeping it simple AF today, because you guys know I’m all about ease when it comes to simple, healthy sweet treats. All you need is oats, some we’ll keep whole and the rest we’ll grind into flour. Date paste for the always amazing caramel-like sweetness, and vegan chocolate chips.

Tada!
