So one morning I was hungry and didn’t have my usual ingredients to make smoothie. There are many things that I could have made, but what I really wanted was a cookie… 🙂
I’m a big girl, with no kids in the house anymore so I could have gotten away with eating a cookie and no one knowing.
Then I had a thought… What about making a breakfast cookie that would be quite healthy and completely legitimate to eat first thing in the morning… Filled with healthy fats, oats, flax and fruit.
Alas a new cookie and breakfast was created! If you have a child that just doesn’t like eating breakfast or doesn’t have time, just pop a few of these into them 🙂
Cranapple Breakfast Cookies (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar Free)
1 c. gluten free oats (I use Only Oats)
3 Tbsp. coconut flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. sea salt
3/4 c. palm sugar (or desired granular sugar)
1/4 c. ground flax
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. chopped dried cranberries
1/3 c. coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. grated apple **
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium size bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. Set aside.
In another medium size bowl, cream coconut oil. Add in eggs and vanilla, cream. Stir in grated apple.
Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir thoroughly.
Drop by spoonful onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Flatten cookies with fork.
For teaspoon size cookies bake for 10-11 minutes or until golden.
For tablespoon size cookies bake for 12-13 minutes or until golden.
Let cook completely. Store in sealed container on the counter for approximately three days or you can freeze them.
** One cup of apple is approximately one medium sized apple. I grate it with the skin on for added fiber. You can peel the apple before grating if desired.
Makes approximately 48 teaspoon size or 20 tablespoon size cookies.
Store in sealed container on counter for up to five days. They also freeze well.
