  • 2 tbsp ground chia seeds + 6 tbsp water or one regular egg
  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 3/4 cups plus 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup vegan or regular butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips dairy free, if desired
  • 3 tbsp crushed chopped candy canes


  • Preheat oven to 350F and line two baking sheets with a silpat or parchment paper.
  • Mix together the chia and water and place in the fridge for one hour. Omit if you do not want to make this vegan and simply use a regular egg.
  • In a bowl, mix together the oats, flour, baking powder, cocoa, cinnamon and salt.
  • To another bowl, cream together the butter with brown sugar using electric beaters until fluffy. Add in the vanilla and peppermint, along with the chia egg or regular egg.
  • Add the wet to the dry, and fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Roll into one tablespoon balls, flatten slightly on a baking sheet with an inch between them and sprinkle with crushed candy canes.
  • Bake for 12 minutes. Allow to cool before transferring to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
