Oat cookies with almonds, cranberries and coconut flakes!

 

oat cookies 1

 

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees

In mixing bowl place:

1/2 c melted unsalted butter

1/4 c brown sugar

Beat gently with hand mixer and then add:

2 eggs

lightly beat with hand mixer

Then add:

1 1/2 c oats

1 1/2 c flour-I used millet

1 tsp baking soda or powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 c dried cranberries

1/4 coconut flakes (unsweetened)

1/4 natural sliced raw almonds

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp honey

4 oz unsweetened applesauce

Stir well with spoon and then drop onto baking sheet 1 tbsp at a time

Bake for 10 to 12 min-let cool on cookie rack-then store in an air tight container

Next up, according to Max, we will make these but with peanut butter and jelly instead of coconut and almonds!

He helped make them but wasn’t thrilled with the taste/texture. I am still trying to get him to like oats in general! I however love them and plan on eating them post workout this week! Yes, that’s right post workout cookies!

These would be great to bring for the kids after the big game or for you to snack on during the game! Much better than chips and hot dogs from the concession stands! The little things matter! Chose wisely! You can even add chocolate chips to these if that will make them more appealing to the kids or adults!

Enjoy!
