Health Rating

Ingredients


3 cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Quick Cooking Oatmeal
1 cup Coconut flour
1 cup Coconut, shredded, unsweetened
1 tsp Baking soda
3 tsp Vanilla bean powder
1/3 cup Peanut butter, natural (sugar free)
1/2 tbsp Peanuts (chopped)
3/4 cup Almond milk, unsweetened
1/2 tbsp Cinnamon
1/4 cup Chia seeds
3/4 cup Water ((water or other base liquid))
1/2 cup Applesauce, unsweetened (suggested amount for sweetness and texture, add to your liking)
1 tbsp Coconut oil
1 cup Carob chocolate chips

Instructions


1. Preheat oven to 350

1. In a separate bowl, mix chia and water (or any other liquid you want to use to create as a base flavour like coffee for example) and stir well so liquid and chia are evenly distributed and free from clumps. Cover and let sit for at least 10 min. 

2. Set 1/2 of the oatmeal portion aside and mix remaining dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add peanut butter and begin to mix dry ingredients, gradually adding more oatmeal as the mixture begins to become more moist. Add almond milk slowly to add extra moisture to the mix. Add apple sauce to the mix as well, it also helps add moisture to the batter but acts as a sweetening agent too.

3. Add soaked chia seeds and slowly add oatmeal, mixing thoroughly with spoon or hands. Continue to add more almond milk, apple sauce or water or base flavour as needed to achieve desired cookie dough texture after mixing all ingredients together.

4. Using coconut oil or a liner to coat the baking sheet, and add dollops of the cookie dough to get an idea of spacing. 

5. Using a fork you can press down on the cookie, I found I needed to shape them a little since the dough was quite thick. 

6. Once your sheet if full of cookies, place it in the middle rack.

7. Cook times may vary, I used smaller trays and made several batches to get through the mix. Each batch took roughly 10-12 minutes to bake, depending on the size of the cookies. Use this as a guide for time, if you added additional liquids to the mix, counter this is as it may require more time baking. Test a cookie to see if the toothpick or fork comes out dry. 

8. Enjoy and remember to share!
