oat + flax + chocolate chip cookies

These cookies are going to be your new go-to when that cookie craving strikes again! But these aren’t your standard chocolate chip cookie, they are relatively guilt free and SO easy to make! Twice in the past week, I have found myself in the kitchen baking up a batch of these little gems. Seriously, they are THAT good (and I wanted to make sure I had the recipe down pat before I published this!) There is something so rewarding about baking. I don’t think there is any better scent that can fill your home, the same way freshly baked cookies (or any baked good!) can. These little treats are super simple, delicious, soft on the inside, a little crispy on the outside and are packed full of clean ingredients AND GLUTEN FREE. What more could you ask for?!

 

INGREDIENTS

one cup of almond flour

one and a half cup of rolled gf oats

half cup of unsweetened shredded coconut

half teaspoon baking powder

half cup of coconut sugar

four tablespoons of melted coconut oil

half teaspoon of vanilla extract

one mashed, ripe banana

one pouch of applesauce (I like to use GoGoSqueez blueberry flavour)

two pinches of Himalayan salt

one teaspoon of ground cinnamon

two teaspoons of ground flax

two teaspoons of hemp hearts

half cup of chopped chocolate chunks (I use a belgium milk chocolate from Bulk Barn)

 

DIRECTIONS

Okay, pay very close attention here…ready?

Pour ALL these delicious ingredients into a mixing bowl, stir up quickly and voila….you have your no-fuss cookie dough! How easy is that? You know how some recipes want you to separate the dry ingredients from the wet and carefully add in each ingredient in a certain way or order? Yeah…not happening! At least not for this recipe and that is why it is one of my absolute favourites, because it is seriously SO simple.

If you’re finding the dough a little too sticky, you can pop the bowl in the fridge for 10 minutes to help make rolling up the dough into two-bite size cookies.

Line your cooking sheet with parchment paper, preheat the oven to 350 degrees, get your little cookie balls on there and pop in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

Enjoy!
