Vegan Oatmeal Lace Cookies [with Coconut]

February 5, 2020

A recipe for Healthy and Vegan Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies. A simple gluten-free and vegan recipe that is ready in 20 minutes.. Little prep work required and makes several dozen cookies.

I’ll be honest, I try not to post finicky recipes. Mostly because who wants to make a recipe that has tons of steps and super specific instructions? But also because when I do I end up having to answer so many questions in the comments. Don’t get me wrong, I love connecting with you guys but not necessarily when I know you didn’t follow the instructions (we all know the people who don’t know how to follow a recipe! Yes…I’m looking at you!)

I originally posted this recipe and 6 years ago and while I thought I was pretty clear in the instructions, it turns out that with finicky recipes I need to really drive the recipe home. It started to get me worried seeing a couple of you not having success so I thought it was due time I retest the recipe (even though recipes are tested 3 times before being posted). For these vegan oatmeal lace cookies I tried to really reinforce the fact that you need to use a TEASPOON (using a measuring spoon!) per cookie dough and to not overcrowd the pan so this time I not only tested the recipe, I also tested where it can go wrong.

And lo and behold my theory was confirmed – there’s nothing wrong with the recipe….some of you guys just don’t know how to follow it ๐Ÿ˜‰ So I’ve decided to update the post below to drill home certain things you need to do to get the perfect oatmeal lace cookies. And trust me, you’re gonna want to follow the instructions because these cookies are DELISH!

What are lace cookies?

If you donโ€™t know what lace cookies areโ€ฆ youโ€™re not alone! They are super thin, crispy yet chewy oatmeal cookies that I canโ€™t get enough of. Like I said, they are really easy to throw together and donโ€™t require many ingredients. Thereโ€™s a fair chance you have everything you need for these cookies in your pantry right now!

Hereโ€™s What You Need:

  • oat flour โ€“ Did you know that you can make your own oat flour by grinding oats in a blender or food processor? You can also use all purpose flour if youโ€™d like.ย 
  • rolled oatsย – regular or quick cooking! Don’t use steel-cut.
  • coconut palm sugar โ€“ brown sugar works great as well.
  • unsweetened coconut flakes โ€“ like I said, I added a flavor twist with these coconut flakes and highly recommend you do the same!
  • spices โ€“ cinnamon and salt
  • coconut oil
  • maple syrup
  • vanilla extract

Perfect Cookiesโ€ฆ Every Time

I canโ€™t say it enough, these cookies are super simple BUT (and I mean BUT!) you must follow the instructions perfectly. When I say to use one TEASPOON, I mean 1 exact teaspoon. I have tested these cookies many times and can tell you that if you use more than a teaspoon per cookie, your cookies will not flatten out. So please use a measuring spoon for every.single.cookie. You got this!

These cookies spread a ton so trust me, only put 12 cookies on a baking sheet. When I make these they usually yield around 4 dozen but be sure to bake each on a single tray, one at a time. They only take 5 minutes to bake so it’s 20 minutes total if you have two trays going.

Bake for just five minutes. Set your timer and watch them as they quickly burn! Remove from the oven but let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for at least five minutes. Donโ€™t touch them before then or theyโ€™ll lose their shape.ย 

Storing Lace Cookies

These cookies are best when theyโ€™re fresh and crispy but there are some tips to storing that help with the crisp.ย 

  1. Let the cookies cool completely before putting them in an airtight container.
  2. Store lace cookies on their own โ€“ donโ€™t mix with other types of cookies!
  3. Store on your counter or in your refrigerator for up to five days.
  4. If you want or need to store them longer, store them in the freezer for up to three months.ย 


Vegan Oatmeal Lace Cookies

A recipe for Healthy and Vegan Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies. A simple gluten-free and vegan recipe that is ready in 20 minutes.. Little prep work required and makes several dozen cookies.

  • Author: Davida Lederle
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 6 dozen 1x


  • 1/2 cup oat flour (AP flour will work too)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  3. In a large bowl combine oat flour, rolled oats, coconut palm sugar, coconut flakes, salt and spices.
  4. In a separate bowl combine coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir to combine. Dough will be wet but not super sticky – this is normal.
  6. Using a 1 teaspoon (using a measuring spoon), scoop dough and place on lined baking sheet. Form into a small ball and flatten slightly with hand. Dough may crumble a bit. They spread a lot so only use 1 tsp!
  7. Repeat for 12 cookies per sheet (will take 4 cookie sheets for whole recipe).
  8. Bake for 5 mins. Watch carefully as they burn quickly.
  9. Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for at least 5 minutes (do not try to remove before then).
  10. Remove from baking sheet using a spatula and let cool completely on a wire rack.
  11. Will keep for several days on counter in an airtight container.

    I usually have bed time snack before bed, but thanks to your posting schedule, that has replaced it ๐Ÿ˜› (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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    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 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 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.

    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.

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

            Thanks for the reply. It still made a super yummy granola. Will remind my husband we need to stick to the recipe next time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    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!

    Hi, what are the nutrition facts on these and serving size?

    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)

      I found these on My Fitness Pal too. I got 35 cookies, and the only difference I made was to substitute all purpose flour for the oat flour. Mine didn’t flatten out either.

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

    Hi! When I baked the cookies they did nitbflatten at all and also had difficulty sticking together (batter seemed pretty dry). Any suggestions on what I could add to makebitbmore moist and spread out? The flavor was still delicious as little mounds, but I wasn’t sure if maybe I could add more oil next time or even a dirt free milk. Thanks!

    The coconut and oatmeal combination is as sweet as it looks i can taste the milky coconut as i look at it just the same recipe that i found it is dairy free and gluten free source:

    Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I made these yesterday, and even my picky daughter who can sniff out a “healthy” treat from a mile away loved these. Thank you!

      Did you use a teaspoon measuring spoon for each cookie? Anything bigger than a teaspoon (measured with a measuring spoon – not a regular spoon) will not spread!

    I made this recipe exactly as directed, even made sure to use a teaspoon, and I ended up with granola. Super disappointing when youโ€™re really jonesing for a lacey cookie.

      Unfortunately, no! You’ll need to use the exact ingredients for these to turn out.
