Chewy, Oatmeal Cookies – St Patty’s Day Edition

St. Patty's Day Oatmeal Cookies. Gluten-Free and Vegan.

St. Patty’s Day Oatmeal Cookies. Gluten-Free and Vegan and GREEN!

I’ve been experimenting with different nut and seed butters in my baking adventures and I stumbled upon this cool mixture that produced yummy, chewy, oatmeal cookies with a green centre. I figured it was due to the sunflower seed butter content. Perfect for St. Patrick’s day right? I shared them at work with staff and patients today and I think they were a hit. I’ve made them gluten-free, however, I’m sure the recipe would work fine with regular wheat flour.


GF/Vegan Oatmeal Cookie Mixture




  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour (I mixed brown rice flour with coconut flour)
  • 1.5 cup demerara brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • ¾  cup coconut milk (you could use any type of milk)
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini dark chocolate chips. My favourite is Camino.


Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

-In a large bowl, combine the oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

-In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, pumpkin seed butter and vanilla. Pour the wet mixture onto the dry ingredients and mix until combined.

-Fold the chocolate chips into the dough.

-Take about 2 tablespoons of dough, roll it into a ball, and then press the dough between our fingers to flatten. Space cookies a couple inches apart.


All done and ready to eat! Chewy oatmeal cookies with a green centre.

-Bake for 10 minutes at 350F until the cookies are golden brown on the bottom. Remove from oven and place onto a cooling rack for 15 minutes.

-Enjoy and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
