Ingredients

BASE RECIPE:

  • 1 large egg , room temperature (sub with flax-egg for VEGAN)
  • 1/3 cup natural nut butter or seed butter of your choice , I tested these with almond and peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil , softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup honey , maple syrup or coconut nectar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup superfine almond flour OR finely ground oat flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3 1/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats , use gluten free as needed
  • 2/3 cup sugar free chocolate chips or chopped chocolate

Optional add-ins:

  • 1 teaspoon ground flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon hemp hearts

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg, almond butter and coconut oil until creamy and smooth. Add the honey, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and baking powder. Beat until combined.

  3. Stir in the flour, followed by the coconut and oats and mix until everything is just combined. Fold in chocolate chips and any other add-ins of your choice.

  4. Use a 1/4 cup to scoop out the dough and drop onto the parchment paper.  Pat the tops down to flatten slightly. 

    Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are slightly brown and set.

  5. Allow to cool on the cookie sheets completely. Cookies can be frozen in a large resealable bag up to 3 months.
