I have been slightly obsessed with cookies lately, they are just so easy to make and they are the perfect snacks and sometimes breakfast. Although there are some great healthy shop bought cookies out there, I still believe that the one you make yourself will always be the best. I love playing around with different ingredients and try to pack as much good stuff as possible. I normally would use a mashed banana as a binder but this time I swap it for an apple as they are in season and it worked perfectly! These cookies are chewy with a subtle crunch from the chia seeds and naturally sweet. I love to have them as a mid afternoon snack or as on the go breakfast.
Makes about 8-10 cookies depending on the size
1 apples (skin on) grated
½ cup of smooth and runny almond butter
3 tbsp brown rice syrup or date syrup
2 tbsp of melted coconut oil
A dash of vanilla extract
¾ cup of oat flour
1/3 cup of ground almond
⅓ cup of milled flaxseeds
1 tablespoon of chia seeds (optional but add a nice texture)
1 tablespoon of One Earth Rejuvenate Your Soul Blend
2 tsp baking powder
Line a large tray with some baking paper.
Start by preheating the oven at 180 degrees Celsius. In a bowl mix together the almond flour, oat flour, milled flaxseeds, One Earth blend and baking powder.
In a separate bowl add the almond butter, grated apple, rice syrup and coconut oil. Mix everything together breaking down any lumps of the almond butter. You want the mixture to be quite gloopy and creamy.
Pour the liquid ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Gently mix everything together. Try not to overmix it as it will result in heavier consistency. If the cookie dough is too dry add a splash of almond milk.
Scoop out about 2 tablespoons of the mixture and place it on the baking tray. With your hands try to shape I into a round cookie shape. Don’t worry if they look very irregular, they will still be delicious!
