  • 6 tablespoons Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 cup Oat Flour (Blend an equal amount of rolled oats until fine)
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Organic, Cage-free Egg
  • 1/4 cup Nut or Seed Butter (such as, peanut, almond, or sunflower)
  • 2 tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Nuts (of choice) (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup Raisins or Chocolate Chips (*optional)


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Mix oats, oat flour, coconut, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl until well-combined.  In a medium bowl, whisk egg, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon until well-combined. Add nuts and raisins or chocolate chips (if using), and fold gently into the dough. Scoop cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet and press gently with a fork to flatten slightly. Bake for 10 – 14 minutes or until golden brown and set. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Yields: 12 – 15 cookies

Total Preparation Time: 30 minutes
