Ingredients Needed and Substitutions:
- Brown Sugar - If you want to make a sugar free oatmeal cookie recipe you can swap the brown sugar for Swerve or if you want a healthier cookie recipe try swapping brown sugar with coconut sugar as it contains vitamins, minerals and fiber.
- Butter - If you are looking for a low fat oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe you can try swapping butter with applesauce or mashed banana.
- Chocolate Chips - Feel free to swap the chocolate chips for Hershey's Sugar Free Chocolate Chips to make a sugar free oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe.
- Egg - If you want to make a low calorie vegan oatmeal cookie recipe swap the egg with ¼ cup of unsweetened applesauce.
- Substitute Flavors - If you don't like chocolate chips try using white chocolate chips to make a white chocolate oatmeal cookie. Using nuts in the mix also works really well - try adding walnuts and raisins for a thick and chewy oatmeal raisin cookie. If you are feeling adventurous add a little bit of everything for a scrumptious kitchen sink oatmeal cookie.
- Icing - If you want to make a weight watchers iced oatmeal cookie recipe try this simple low calorie icing recipe - 3 ounces of light cream cheese softened, 2 tablespoons of zero point granulated white sugar sweetener ( I use Lakanto classic or baking sweetener) 1 egg yolk and ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract - mix together and add the icing to your Kodiak Cakes Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
How To Make This Recipe:
1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prepare 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil. If you are using aluminum foil give the foil a spritz of olive oil to prevent sticking.
2: Add Butter and Brown Sugar to a large mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to mix the butter and brown sugar together until smooth. If you don't have an electric mixer or just don't feel like breaking out appliances and having more things to clean you can easily blend together using a fork and spatula.
3: Once you have mixed your butter and brown sugar well add in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix all together.
4: Now add in the Kodiak Cakes Whole Wheat, Oat, & Honey Flapjack & Waffle Mix and the rolled oats. Mix all together until it turns into a nice doughy batter.
5: Add in your chocolate chips or change it up and try some raisins in the mix or walnuts. Kids love M&M's so you could try that. Don't be afraid to be creative and try different things...it's fun!
6: Now that your cookie batter is prepared to your liking scoop 2-3 tablespoon-sized dollops onto your prepared baking sheets.
7: Bake for 9-11 minutes in the oven until golden around the edges. You can also make these in the air fryer in small batches.
Just cut a small square of parchment paper and place 2-3 dollops on the paper in the air fryer and air fry for about 3 minutes at 350 degrees. You may have to adjust the time and temp for your air fryer as some air fryers cook hotter than others.
I find the Ninja Foodie cooks very hot and fast so those cookies will cook quick but the air fryer is perfect if you just want to make 2-3 fresh cookies for the day as snacks in the morning.
- To keep your cookies from fusing together on your baking sheet and turning into one giant cookie try placing your oatmeal cookie batter dollops in alternating rows on your baking sheets. For example, place three cookies in the first row, two in the second, three in the third, two in the fourth, and so on. Your cookies will be perfect every time!
- If you love chocolate like me try making double chocolate oatmeal cookies. Just add in ½ cup of natural unsweetened cocoa powder to the recipe ingredients and you will have created the ultimate mouth watering chocolate oatmeal cookie.
- For coconut lovers add in ½ cup of coconut flakes for a light and crispy coconut oatmeal cookie. Adding cranberries and raisins can also make for some extra sweetness while still keeping this a Weight Watchers approved dessert.
- Not sure which topping to mix into your cookie batter, try adding in all of the above for a batch of delicious loaded oatmeal cookies.

These homemade without flour oatmeal cookies are healthy as they are prepared with Kodiak Cakes Waffle Mix. Kodiak Cakes contain 14 grams of whey protein isolate per serving. Proteins are the building blocks of life so being able to include protein in your dessert is a double win. Satisfy your sweet tooth and by adding more protein to your diet you will boost your metabolism which aids in weight loss.
No, homemade cookies do not need to be refrigerated. Place the cookies in an air tight container for up to 5 days at room temperature. Your raw cookie dough can be refrigerated for several days before baking.
If you have baked a large batch of oatmeal cookies and cannot eat them all, it is great to freeze them for another day. After baking, let your cookies cool completely. Then place them in a freezer-safe zip-top storage bag labeled with the name and date.
Usually frozen cookies will stay good for about 6 months in the freezer.
When thawing frozen baked cookies, take them out of the containers and let sit out at room temperature so that condensation doesn't form and make them soggy. You can reheat frozen or thawed cookies for that fresh-baked taste and texture: place them in a 275°F oven and bake - check on them after 10 to 15 minutes.
