How It's Made

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of oats (gluten-free if desired)
  • 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour (or a gluten-free flour blend)
  • 3/4 cup of grated coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of the trail mix of your choice
  • 2 tablespoon of ground flaxseed (or ground chia seeds)
  • 6 tablespoons of water
  • 1/4 of melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup of almond butter
  • 1/2 cup of coconut sugar (or cane sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, flour, grated coconut, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Mix the ground flaxseed with the water and set aside for 5 minutes, until it becomes a thick gel.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the wet ingredients: the flaxseed gel, coconut oil, almond butter, coconut sugar and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix. Add the trail mix of your choice and stir to combine.
  4. Scoop out about two tablespoons full of dough and place on the cookie sheet. Repeat until you are out of cookie dough. Leave about 3 to 4cm of space between each cookie. Flatten slightly with a fork.
  5. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Let cool.
