Vegan Coconut Oatmeal Cookies+ CHOCOLATE HUMMUS is Back!

Since starting The Colorful Kitchen a little over a year ago, the most popular (by far) has been Chocolate Hummus. By now you’re probably very familiar with my love of sweet/salty snacks so I’ll spare you the story about how I decided to make a batch of Chocolate Hummus when I was in the mood for something sweet but not too sweet…you know the drill..

Anyways, I’m all about eating any kind of hummus by the spoonful but I decided to whip up a batch of not-too-sweet Coconut Oatmeal Cookies for dipping purposes. I’m really excited about these cookies because they use very little sweetener (just 1 tbs of agave) and are nicely flavorful. The oats give the cookies a hearty texture, which is the perfect contract to the hummus.

I rolled out the batter and used a heart-shaped cookie cutter, but you can feel free to roll the batter into balls with your hand. My cookies were a little over 1/4″ thick and needed 12 minutes in the oven, so if your cookies are thicker just be sure to add a little extra baking time.

  1. These are so delicious, exactly what I was looking for a long time! The only problem is that the dough turned out very dry and it could not hold together at all. I add one more Tbs of coconut oil but did not change much. I ended up eating crumbs but still so good. Thank you for the recipe! If you have any suggestion how to fix that dough, please let me know.

    • I’m glad you like the flavor but that’s unfortunate about the consistency! Did you mix the batter well? Sometimes it takes a little hand kneading to get the batter just perfect. :)

  2. Beautiful site! I wish to try your cookies.
    Missing liquid in this recipe (?), coconut flour absorbs a lot.
    Thank you!
