  • Preheat oven to 350º F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Stir together butter, coconut sugar, aquafaba and vanilla in a large bowl until well combined.
  • In another bowl, combine oat flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 
  • Pour flour mixture into butter mixture and stir to combine. 
  • Stir in oats.
  • Fold in coconut and pecans.
  • Use a cookie scoop (I used a #30 disher) or your hands to create dough balls. Press down on each dough ball lightly with your fingertips. If you don't have a large enough baking sheet, you can bake in two different batches. You want to make sure the dough balls are not too close so that they don't run into each other. 
  • Bake approximately 12-16 minutes until cookies are set and edges appear light golden brown (mine took 15 minutes).
  • Cool on baking sheet for approximately 5 minutes before transferring to wire rack to continue to cool.



*In place of the chopped pecans, you can use chopped walnuts or vegan, refined sugar-free chocolate chunks or chocolate chips. Please note doing so will change the nutrition information. If you opt for chocolate chunks or chocolate chips, omit the ground cinnamon from the recipe.
If you eat the cookies right away after cooling, they will be crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Storing them in an airtight container at room temperature will soften the outsides as well. They can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Please note the nutrition calculation for this recipe does not include the aquafaba since there is limited information regarding its nutritional composition. According to this Healthline article, aquafaba adds approximately 3-5 calories per tablespoon.
