Healthy Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies (GF option)

Since I have to stay at home these days, I feel as if I open the fridge every 10 minutes.  I’ve been trying to eat healthy snacks like fruit, nuts or dark chocolate but I sometimes (or if I’m being honest, daily)  grab some ice-cream or fatty sugary sweets, but I blame it on this tough situation.

So, I decided to create a healthy dessert recipe for myself. This crispy oat chocolate chip cookie recipe is a very easy one-bowl recipe, healthy and so good.  I reduced the sugar as much as I could and instead added high cacao dark chocolate for the sweetness. Also, I added wholesome oats, egg whites which are high in protein, and just a little coconut oil.

I hope you enjoy my healthy cookie recipe:)



Healthy Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 2 (60g) egg whites
  • 30 g (2+1/2 tbsp) sugar
  • 120 g (1+1/4 cups) old-fashioned rolled oats (GF if desired)
  • 60 g (1/3 cup) dark chocolate (I used 70%) - chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil - melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 180℃/360℉. Line a baking pan with baking paper and set aside.

  2. Put egg whites and sugar into a large bowl, lightly beat with a whisk until frothy but not stiff.

  3. Add rolled oats, chopped dark chocolate, coconut oil. Stir until it's well combined.

  4. Spoon onto a baking tray and shape into rounds. You don't need to leave so much room between the cookies because they won't spread.

  5. Bake for 15 to 20 mins, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Helpful Tips

You can add your favorite nuts. But when you reduce the amount of chocolate, it might not be sweet enough for you since it’s already low in sugar, so please adjust the sugar amount as desired.
