Is that supposed to be 1/2 cup of agave?

Lara,
Yes, 1/2 cup. Thanks for catching that – just updated the recipe. :)

Heather! These look great! I love making hodge-podged oat cookies…they’re always delicious.

Sorry about your bummed 12th South experience…Hot Yoga knows where it’s at.

Take care!

Wow this recipe looks really great… just a question though, as a student on a budget, I can’t pour 1/2 cup worth of maple syrup/agave without seeing $$$ signs flowing away …. any cheaper substitutions??? :D Thanks!

Hey Cecilia,
You could always try juice concentrates like apple, pineapple, or cherry. I bet they would work nicely in the Maple Oaties recipe. I did try honey once, but the cookies turned out way too sweet. If you do use honey, only use 1/4 cup instead of 1/2. :)

Thanks for including the tip about using honey instead of maple syrup or agave. We don’t use agave and yeah, the maple syrup price means I usually sub honey.

yum these look fantastic, and i have all those ingredients in my cupboard already, score!

A word of caution: these aren’t gluten-free unless they are specifically made with gluten-free oats. Oats are contaminated with wheat through their growing cycle due to crop rotation, and also in processing. Many celiacs are also sensitive to the protein in oats as it is structurally similar to gluten. Please be careful.

Finally made these! My kids ate ‘em all right up!!

Laura July 28, 2009 at 9:10 am

Unsweetened coconut is very hard to find in my area. If I use the sweetened coconut instead, will I have to alter the recipe at all?

angela June 4, 2011 at 1:27 pm

I order mine from nutsonline.com, its awesome!

megan September 11, 2009 at 7:11 pm

I really want to make these. How many does it make? Thanks!

Amanda September 19, 2009 at 9:38 pm

These look super yummy! Thanks so much for posting it. Is there anything I can use instead of coconut? I’m allergic :( .

Reply

Carolyn October 3, 2009 at 10:15 am

I have the ingredients in my kitchen, so have mixed everything and waiting for it to cool for 15 minutes before it goes in the oven…

Problem is… I keep going back to the fridge to “taste” it one more time…. IT TASTES SO AWESOME!

My son is allergic to wheat (not celiac) so this recipe fits perfectly for him. It’s sweet so I think of it mainly as a treat, but because of the other thing good for him in it, like the nuts, unsweetened coconut, oats and cinnamon- I also think of it as something nutritious to eat.

I love your recipes and thank you for sharing them with us!

- Carolyn

You’re welcome Carolyn. So glad you like the cookies…um, I mean batter. Hehe. Every time I make a batch, I cannot keep CD out of the dough! Enjoy and thanks for reading my blog. :) Hope you have a good weekend. Love, Heather

Ok, so I might have to try and make these with quinoa flakes ;-) I hope they aren’t the suck. I know Oats would taste better. *le sigh* quinoa flakes it is!

Reply

Heather Eats Almond Butter November 20, 2009 at 7:13 pm

Marissa, Please let me know how the oaties turn out with quinoa flakes!

Reply

Angela June 4, 2011 at 1:29 pm

Yes PLEASE share! I have celiac and our whole family is gluten free so we order our oats from Bobs red mill by the pallet BUT I finally realized the oats give me horrible reflux. I was wondering if this would work with the quinoa flakes but figured they are too thin and might fall apart. I may try it too.

Reply

HEAB June 4, 2011 at 5:06 pm

Angela, I’m not sure how Marissa’s turned out, but someone else made them with quinoa flakes and said they turned out great. I also just made some with 1/2 oats, 1/2 quinoa flour, and they were a hit. So, perhaps all quinoa flour would work? Not sure, but definitely worth a try! :)

Angela June 4, 2011 at 5:11 pm

Thanks! I hadn’t realized at the time how old this post was.

Chandra December 9, 2009 at 11:00 am

Love the cookies…I had to substitute a few things and didn’t have the shredded coconut but I used honey instead of agave and used less and used coconut oil to even out the liquids. Will be trying lots of different combos!

Heather Eats Almond Butter December 9, 2009 at 11:06 am

Chandra, So glad you enjoyed your Oaties. Sounded delicious!

Felicia, NEVER make oaties at night…way too tempting fresh from the oven. They will call to you from the kitchen. :)

Jo March 3, 2010 at 2:25 pm

Hey Heather, thanks for the recipe! I just made a batch and they look amazing! I ate way too much of the raw mixture though!

I’m going to write up about it on my blog but will be sure to credit you.

Thanks!

Heather Eats Almond Butter March 3, 2010 at 3:17 pm

So glad you enjoyed the Oaties Jo, and yes, that raw batter is super dangerous to have around. It’s like granola cookie dough!

Reply

jane March 18, 2010 at 7:54 pm

these are soo good, but when i cooked them for only 12 minutes they were still super soft. i ended up leaving them in closer to 15-20 minutes til the outside got almost golden brown, and even then they are still really mushy in the center. no complaints cause they taste FANTASTIC- but is that the right consistency?
oh, i also used 1/4 cup mashed banana and 1/4 cup maple syrup in attempt to cut down on maple syrup (im a poor college kid and the only way i get syrup is when my parents treat me hah) and the taste was fantastic, espeically cause i used peanut butter and chocolate.

Reply

Heather Eats Almond Butter March 18, 2010 at 8:27 pm

Jane, Glad you liked the Oaties. No, mind don’t stay really soft in the center. The cook all the way through. I’m wondering if the banana changed the texture? Oh well, doesn’t matter, as long as they turned out delicious, right? Enjoy!

Once again, HEABS recipes to the rescue. After some tracking (not wanting to but needing to), I’ve found my sugars are too high so pizza pancakes tomorrow for supper it is.

AND I’m making the maple nut oaties for a “Good for you, good for the earth” green themed basket for a giveaway next week.

Sally from Goodlovefairytales.com April 3, 2010 at 9:12 am

Oh. My. I finally made these this morning. I tasted them warm and they were deeeelicious. I justed tasted another cooled, and I think I may swoon. These are positively the best cookies I have made in a very long time. I would say that I need to hide them from myself but it doesn’t really help if I know where that hiding place is. So, I think I will just beat myself to the punch and snarf them all down in the next, ummm, 46 minutes :O

Heather Eats Almond Butter April 3, 2010 at 9:21 am

Sally, I often have to hide the Oaties from my husband. Glad you enjoyed. :)

lo April 13, 2010 at 6:31 pm

what’s the nutritional info on these buggers? i need to know how many of them i can eat ;)

Reply

Heather Eats Almond Butter April 13, 2010 at 6:37 pm

lo, I added it up once for another blogger. If I remember correctly, it was over 200 calories per cookie if you make 12 cookies per batch. They are definitely NOT low cal, but so yummy. :)

Reply

Cindy April 14, 2010 at 4:15 pm

I finally made these today. When my husband came home from work, he popped one in his mouth and gave me a look that said this was probably the best thing I’ve ever made. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I’ve already passed it along to a friend.

Hi H–
I’m making a care package for my cousin who’s away and college and oh-so-homesick….
I was thinking of making these cuties to send along to her for a special treat…included in my care package. Would they last in the mail a few days or go bad quickly? I don’t want her to open rotten agave (no maple on hand) nut oaties ;)

Reply

HEAB September 26, 2010 at 12:34 pm

Namaste Gurl,
I mail these all the time, but I always ship priority mail, especially if it’s warm outside. The cookies should be okay for a few days as they contain no eggs or dairy. Hope your cousin enjoys them! :)

I’ve just discovered your website and love it – the recipes are fantastic! I made these a few days ago and am making another double batch today. Dark vegan chocolate, agave, dried cherries and toasted sliced almonds. Yum!! Keep the great recipes coming. Thank you, Heather!

So glad you found me and thanks for reading. This is my favorite cookie recipe ever, and I’m so happy to hear you’re enjoying some Oatie love. Your cherry almond version sounds delicious! :)

Whitney October 31, 2010 at 3:07 pm

Thanks so much for our oaties! I love them- they taste like almond joys, but better! I am making a couple of batches to send to my brother right now- except that he doesn’t like nuts or coconut so I hope they turn out ok without those mix-ins :) Thanks again!

HEAB October 31, 2010 at 4:22 pm

Whitney,
So glad you guys liked them…you would have gotten more, but CD stole a few…or 5. :) Such an easy recipe and one of my favorites. Hope Josh likes them, and please tell Nick thanks again for all his help with the furniture. We really appreciated it!

I had a ton of pomegranate and made these oaties into POM, Chocolate & Nut oaties. I used 1/4 tahini to replace half of the nut butter. They turned out really well and I included them in my goodie bags for my party guests.

Thanks Heather for the recipe and inspiration.
