Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies

February 12, 2014

A recipe for Healthy Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies. A simple gluten-free and vegan recipe that is ready in minutes. Little prep work required!

So after two days of trickier recipes I thought I’d throw in something that you can make with your eyes closed. I say eyes and not ears because if you miss the timer on these bad boys by more than 30 seconds they will burn. I learned that lesson the hard way.

Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies // thehealthymaven.com #glutenfree #veganA few weeks ago when the idea for the bake-off started swirling in my head I posted on Facebook asking what baked goods you wanted to see made healthier? Kelly being the awesome human that she is was the only person to respond. Thanks guys. So today I’m posting this recipe in honour of her and made a healthier version of oatmeal lace cookies as she requested! With some coconut added in because I’m incapable of not throwing in a twist.

Thanks to your lack of requests, I’ve been living in fear that no one will link-up on Friday. That or Blue Host is going to shut my blog server down on me. Blue Host, for the love of cupid GET IT TOGETHER.

Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies 2Despite this, today I wanted to send out the love to all of my blends. From Toronto to New York to Berlin to Edmonton and even all the way in Sydney, I feel incredibly lucky to say I have made some amazing friends around the world. This community that I have found myself in is filled with unique individuals all with interesting and insightful things to share . Recipes are drooled over, controversial posts are written, and on occasion we disagree. But I wouldn’t want to change any of it.

To the people who I talk to on a daily basis, whose posts inspire me, who share their tips with me and let me share my insecurities with them, you know who you are. Thank you and a very Happy Valentine’s Day! All the love.

    I usually have bed time snack before bed, but thanks to your posting schedule, that has replaced it 😛 (not really, but it’s the last thing I do computer wise before shutting it off..)

    The shout out to Sydney was well received….legit in time with the 9pm fireworks. The best thing about blogging is without a doubt the blends- some which may even trump my day to day friends because of the humour and genuine hearts of Gold. OR black gold… ;). As for the cookies- these are like Anzac Biscuits skinny cousin. #9 on my to make list.

    Um, I think I am going to make these tomorrow for my next scheduled snow day (It’s becoming so routine to be snowed in at least one day a week). I have never encountered a recipe for lace cookies that was this simple using “healthier” ingredients. And, no nuts involved. Love. And I love the blogging community as well for the friends I have made across the globe. It’s truly amazing, isn’t it?

    I’m so grateful for blogging too! 4 years ago it helped to change my relationship with food – and to this day it continues to inspire me to be experimental in the kitchen, try new workouts, be more gentle on myself, and to just do what makes me happy. And what I think I love most about the community is the support – you guys all rock!!!

    Those look great! They look so crunchy and crispy! I LOVE that in anything! I wanna make them now! Especially if they are easy! I must resist…..have 7 miles of hard running (plus 6 of easy) in my way first haha!

    I totally agree about the blogging community! I love how in “real life” people going for the same goal would compete against one another, and I am one of the people guiltiest of this, but I feel here it is all about supporting one another, and getting the word out about what is good for everyone. I love it! You are one of the best ones out there! You bring a lot of people together 🙂

    I love how easy this recipe looks, and how delicious it sounds! I even have all of these actual things in my house. Yay! I’m not sure this can be healthified but I loooove sugar cookies with buttercream frosting. Heaven in the form of a ridiculous sugar rush.

    Sending you all.the.love. for Valentine’s Day. You are such an inspiration whether you are making me smile or making me think. I’m so happy to have “met” you through blogging. My favorite thing about blogging is definitely the people. Technology and my tendency to blab has connected me, as you said, to a world of like-minded individuals with whom I occasionally disagree. It’s pretty incredible in my opinion.

    I sooo want to come up with a recipe so I can link-up, but this week is killing me so there’s a 50/50 chance I’ll be a total fail. Unless I’m allowed to link up with break n’ bake cookies, but I’m guessing that defeats the whole point.
    I love how many awesome people I’ve met through the blogging world! I started my blog as a way to not annoy my real-life friends with how much I love working out and being healthy, but it’s been so much more than that. It’s so awesome to find a community of people who share the same values and outlooks as you!

    Is it possible to health-ify pound cake? That’s something I miss since cutting out refined sugar/processed food.

    I love the feeling of community I’ve gotten from blogging. A group of people who have the same interests, who are obviously super-intelligent since they are good writers and so creative – and it’s been so fun to truly make new friends. Speaking of, can’t wait to come to Toronto (make sure Ben is free) xoxo.

    I just made these and they were absolutely delish! However they were a bit greasy. I was just re-reading the recipe and noticed it called for 1/4c coconut. But in the directions it doesn’t mention when to add. I assume it’s with the oats. Please verify. In the picture I see coconut on top of the cookie but I assume that was just for decoration after baked. Can’t wait to make again. Thx!!

      Hi Hinda! Thank you for noticing that! Yes, add the coconut when you add the oats. I’ll add that into the instructions now. I didn’t find mine to be too greasy but I think that’s also just the nature of lace cookies since they are almost a melted texture when you take them out of the oven. I’m glad you still enjoyed them though and thank you for catching that error!

        Hi! My husband made these today. Delicious. But they never spread out at all. They just got crumbly. We did sub coconut flour for the oat flour. Otherwise followed the recipe. Thoughts?

          Hi Mandy! Unfortunately it was the coconut flour that did it. Coconut flour is super absorbent so it requires much more liquid compared to other flours, which would explain why they didn’t spread. I’m sorry they didn’t work out for you! Hope you enjoyed them any way 🙂

            Thanks for the reply. It still made a super yummy granola. Will remind my husband we need to stick to the recipe next time. 😉

    Can I substitute honey for the maple syrup?

    Looking forward to trying the Lace Cookies today, but just wanted to say I really appreciate that you include potential substitutions! Made my life so much easier to know I can use ingredients I already had on hand!

    I love this recipe! I made these this afternoon, but my cookies stayed in the small, slightly flattened balls. They did not turn out flat, like lace cookies at all. I used all the ingredients above (minus the coconut flakes). Not sure why my cookies didn’t come out right. The coconut oil may have been on the warmer side- does that matter?

      with these cookies that may have been what made the difference unfortunately! They’re super finicky when it comes to ingredient temp. Hope they still tasted delicious!

    I just saw these on My Fitness Pal and decided to make them. I followed recipe exactly, but there was hardly any dough and I used a measuring teaspoon, but barely squeaked out 26 cookies. Just wanted to make sure the recipe amounts were correct, since it was supposed to make about 72. I only got 26 quarter sized cookies. They taste very good, but didn’t flatten out. Was the 1/2 cup of rolled oats and 1/2 cup oat flower correct?

      I also ended up making less cookies– 42. I think I wasn’t doing a perfect teaspoon every time. I followed the recipe almost exactly (had helo from my toddler and preschooler which could have skewed some measurements)

    These were sooo tasty! They tasted much sweeter than they actually are. They’ll be a perfect pre-bedtime snack! Thanks!
