Big and Chewy Healthy Oatmeal Cookies with Orange Citrus Icing

Big and Chewy Healthy Oatmeal Cookies with Orange Citrus Icing

Big and chewy healthy oatmeal cookies with orange citrus icing–it’s quite a mouthful but every word is extremely important in the description of these cookies. I debated whether or not to add gluten-free, refined sugar-free, high in protein with a vegan option to the title. What do you think? Probably best the way I left it. Now you know that besides these cookies being big, chewy, healthy oatmeal cookies with orange citrus icing they are also everything else I listed above–and absolutely delicious, of course!

When I was little, I was always one of those weird kids that actually loved oatmeal cookies. In fact, I preferred them over most cookies. Weirdo–I know! Now that I’m adult, it’s much more accepted for an oatmeal cookie to be your favorite kind and I embrace it for all it’s worth. Bring on the oatmeal cookies!!!


For these oatmeal cookies, I added almonds and flax meal just for funsies. No, I’m kidding. I did have a specific reason in doing so. The almonds adds a little extra crunch and the flax adds a little fiber. Can’t go wrong with either, right? Along with almonds and flax, I added protein powder. I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select Protein. Get 30% off using my affiliate code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website www.pescience.com. For a vegan option, use a plant based protein (PEScience has that as well).

Can we take a second to admire how beautiful thee cookies are and they taste just as good as they look. Only way to find out is to make them for yourself!

Big and Chewy Healthy Oatmeal Cookies with Orange Citrus Icing

Big and chewy healthy oatmeal cookies with orange citrus icing.

Ingredients

    for the cookies
  • 3/4 c gluten-free oat flour
  • 3/4 c gluten-free rolled oats
  • 32g vanilla protein powder, vegan if necessary PEScience 30% off code PBCHOCO
  • 1/4 c granulated zero calorie sweetener Swerve
  • 1/4 c coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 c + 1 tbsp maple syrup (sugar-free works as well)
  • 1/4 c slivered almonds
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch sea salt
  • zest of 1 orange
    for the icing
  • 1/4 c zero calorie confectioners sweetener Swerve
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
    other (optional)
  • dried orange slices

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place all dry cookie ingredients into a bowl and stir until combined. Add in the wet ingredients and mix until a sticky dough forms. Separate the dough into 8 evenly sized balls. To keep dough from sticking to your hands too much, wash your hands after rolling every 2 balls.
  3. Press the balls flat onto the parchment paper. Top with dried orange slices if desired and bake for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Remove from the oven and let cool. Once cooled, stir together the icing ingredients and drizzle over cookies. Serve.

Notes

You can replace confectioners sugar with protein powder for the icing. Be mindful of liquid amount used. You may need to add more or less orange juice until you have reached a desired consistency.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c almond flour
  • 1/2 c gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 c protein powder PEScience 30% off code PBCHOCO
  • 1/4 c Truvia or granulated sweetener
  • 1 tbsp Tapioca flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger

Instructions

  1. Place all dry ingredients into a mixer and mix until combined. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix using a paddle attachment until a dough forms. You may need to stop and scrape the sides.
  2. Wrap dough in plastic and place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 375F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove and roll dough out about 1/4 inch thick on a clean dusted surface. I used tapioca flour for dusting.
  4. Place the cut outs on the baking sheet about 1" apart. Bake for 6-7 minutes. Don't over bake. Let cool before serving.

Notes

I prefer these cookies without icing but for the photo I just used powdered erythritol and almond milk. I didn't measure--just mixed until I got the consistency I was looking for.
