Excuse the extremely long title.
There was a lot to fit in one line.
Did you know…oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are one of the most popular cookies ever? You probably did. I mean, if you went to any basic
betch cafe, you’d be semi-certain that a classic oatmeal cookie would be present.
When it comes to oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, I’ve always been VERY skeptical. More often than not, I’d choose a plain chocolate one or my favorite white chocolate macadamia variety.
It’s not because I have anything against the pairing of oatmeal and chocolate chips.
It’s not because I prefer pure chocolate over a hybrid.
It’s not because oats are carbs and carbs are the enemy.
It’s not you, it’s
me the imposter.
Who is the imposter?
THE DARN RAISIN.
Because of this, I’ve always avoided chocolate chip cookies, out of the irrational fear that I might accidentally be biting into a raisin. Oatmeal raisin cookies have a place for themselves, often next to decaf coffee.
To everyone who has ever been deceived by the silly raisin- This one is for YOU.
If you’ve been a regular reader on TBMW, you’ll know that edible (egg free!) cookie dough is one of my favorite recipes. I shared a version way back last year, followed by a pumpkin version and a snickerdoodle version. However, I wanted to create a version which was as close as possible to REAL oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough…with a healthy twist.
Traditional oatmeal cookie dough uses the following basic ingredients- Oats, flour, brown sugar, butter, eggs, and milk.
Personally, I think all of those ingredients could totally be part of a balanced diet, but we want something here we can enjoy every single day and even better, for breakfast. Not only that, but we can play the ‘team greedy’ card here, and make it single serving so we can polish it off on our lonesomes. With a few cheeky swaps, I’m stoked to share today’s beauty with you- This healthy single serve oatmeal chocolate chip breakfast cookie dough!
This oatmeal chocolate chip breakfast cookie dough is your answer to a deceptively healthy dessert for breakfast recipe which is single serving! It has the taste and texture of real cookie dough, minus the typical ingredients- You won’t use any sugar, eggs, butter, cream or milk in the entire recipe! It’s made from wholesome, healthy and easy ingredients which you’d have on hand! The key to achieving the true classic cookie dough flavor is adding a dash of blackstrap molasses. The reason for this is because I find that brown sugar is what gives the cookie that distinct flavor. Saying that, molasses can be VERY overpowering (think gingerbread-eque recipes!) so half a teaspoon is all you’ll need for the recipe. Because of the ingredients used, this recipe is naturally gluten free, vegan and dairy free! For those skeptical of eating ‘raw’ cookie dough, this is 100% egg free and uses no white/wheat flour, so don’t hold back!
HACK! Protein lovers, you’ve been covered! This totally works with adding a scoop of your favorite vanilla or neutral-tasting protein powder- I love this using this vegan protein powder, as it really compliments the ingredients well, and doesn’t have the grainy taste other protein powders can have.
Make this healthy single serve oatmeal chocolate chip breakfast cookie dough and raise your raisins….
…and aim them at the bin.
Just kidding, wasting food is a big no-no. We’ll save them for their own special recipe.

Oatmeal Cookie Dough
- 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
- 1-3 T granulated sweetener of choice I used a stevia blend, monkfruit*
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder optional
- 2 T smooth cashew butter
- 1 1/2 T light agave nectar can sub for pure maple syrup or dark agave syrup
- 1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses can sub for extra agave/maple syrup**
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch sea salt
- Dairy free milk***
- 2-3 T dairy free chocolate chips
- Add the rolled oats into the blender/food processor, and blend until a flour is formed. Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the milk and several chocolate chips. Blend until fully immersed. If batter is too thick/sticky, add a tiny amount of dairy free milk to desired batter thickness.
- Remove from blender/food processor and place into a bowl. Top with remaining chocolate chips and enjoy!
By hand option
- Blend oats until a fine flour is formed.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine your oat flour, granulated sweetener, protein powder, sea salt and mix well.
- Stovetop or in the microwave, melt your nut butter with sticky sweeteners. Pour into the dry mixture, except for the chocolate chips. Mix very well until combined. If dough is too thick, add dairy free milk until desired batter is formed. Stir through chocolate chips and mix until combined. Transfer for a bowl and enjoy!
** Do not go overboard with molasses- It’s very distinct and a little goes a long way!
*** If you want a creamier dough, add more. If you want a VERY thick dough, you may not even need any!
Oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough is freezer friendly- If you want a thicker texture even adding more milk, refrigerate overnight before enjoying!

I’m still recovering from a raisin cookie I thought was chocolate chip when I was a child. -shudder-. I could see myself enjoying this for breakfast!
Oh geebuz!!!! Please do, I think you’d like it 🙂
Well I wouldn’t be surprised if oatmeal chocolate chip is one of the most loved cookies out there! It tastes out of this world! I used to hate the darn oatmeal raisin vs. chocolate chip cookie situation too, but I did learn to love them both!
That’s the best way to go about it, Cassie! 😀
Now this is bae and bae is perfect! Oatmeal raisin cookies are pretty much like false hope, chocolate chip is 198403284034x better!
Totally agree on those pesky raisins pretending to be chocolate chips! Had this for breakfast this morning – delicious!
Oh fantastic- Glad you enjoyed it!
Hahaha…you sounds like Laura with your irrational and unfounded fear of oatmeal raisin cookies. Well that’s ok because it just leaves more for me. The chewy, oaty, raisiny deliciousness…mmmm. 🙂 But with that said, I’d gladly save my oatmeal raisin cookie for later if I had some of this breakfast cookie dough around. But can I add some raisins to mine? 🙂
When you put it that way…it sounds pretty delicious!
Hehe… I agree and yet I still like oatmeal raisin for some reason. However, I really need to try an eggless version of cookie dough some time, and I think yours are the only ones I’ve seen. 🙂
Thanks Emily, I hope you do, it’s been made by readers already and they’ve loved it!
I actually like oatmeal raisin cookies better than chocolate chip. 🙂
….As long as the chocolate chip one gets considered a second breakfast 😀
I sent this link to Rachel, who thinks raisins are the devil. She says, “THIS ARTICLE IS A BEACON OF TRUTH.” ← direct quote that she literally just sent me.
I, for one, usually prefer to find raisins in my oatmeal cookies. But I am falling more in love with chocolate chip cookies (read: Levain Bakery), and I can always go for some cookie dough 🙂
Of course you would prefer raisins over chocolate chips…You are below the quality of human being Rachel and I are. You should hear what we are plotting once you are away!
