Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 11 minutes
Total Time 31 minutes
Servings 24 cookies


  • 1/2 C Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 C Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 C Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 C Steel Cut Oats not quick cook oats
  • 1 C All Purpose Flour I used Gluten Free Baking Flour

  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3/4 C Shredded Coconut Flakes I used unsweetened
  • 1 C Pumpkin Spice Chips You can substitute chocolate chips
  • 1/3 C Chopped Walnuts (optional)
  • Coarse Sea Salt for Sprinkling on Top


  1. In a mixing bowl or stand mixing bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Add the egg and mix until smooth.

  2. In a medium-size bowl, mix the steel-cut oats, flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix gently with a fork or whisk. Add slowly to the wet ingredients and mix on medium speed. Stir in Pumpkin Spice Morsels and chopped walnuts.

  3. Using a large spoon, scoop the cookie dough and roll into a ball. Place on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Space them 1 to 1.5 inches apart. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes to harden the coconut oil.

  4. Preheat over to 350 degrees. Bake cookies to 10 to 11 minutes. You want the edges to be slightly brown. The tops do not need to be brown. Let them cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before placing on wire baking racks to cool. They will be crunchy when they are completely cool.


Recipe Notes

You can change several elements of this recipe. I wanted a gluten-free cookie, so I used Gluten-Free Steel Cut Oats and Gluten-Free Baking Flour. These cookies are not overly sweet. You can use chocolate chips to make a different cookie, and you can omit the walnuts. cookies-6 Recipe adapted from Life Made Simple
