Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

My Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies have quickly become the most popular recipe on my website. I love seeing all of you making and enjoying them!

These cookies are a twist on the classic – they contain no dairy so are crunchier, but still are nice and chewy inside (not dry like a biscuit).

They’re super quick to make so, if you start now, you could be taking these out of the oven in 15 minutes!

I suggest making both varieties to compare and contrast! 😉

This recipe makes 5 cookies.

Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe by Siun ClinchCourse: DessertDifficulty: Easy


Prep time


Cooking time




  • 100g regular oats

  • 60ml honey

  • 40g chopped milk chocolate or chocolate chips (use a good dark chocolate for dairy free)

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Pinch of salt


  • Heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Mix the oats, honey, egg, vanilla and salt together in a large bowl and stir through the chopped chocolate.
  • Divide the mixture up into 5 balls and place them on the parchment paper. Gently press down with your finger tips to around 1cm thickness. They won’t rise or expand so you can judge what size / thickness you want them before you put them in the oven.
  • Bake for 10 – 12 minutes and then cool on a wire rack.
