Ingredients

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup steel cut oats (or an additional 1/4 cup of old-fashioned oats)
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup ground flax meal
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup liquid coconut oil*
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar OR brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup blue agave syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries OR raisins
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup nuts chopped, (walnuts, pecans or almonds) or semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats; set aside.
  • Pulse the walnuts in a food processor until a coarse meal or flour forms; transfer to a large bowl. Add the oats, whole wheat flour, flax meal, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, whisk to combine.
  • Add the almond butter, coconut oil, sugar, agave, eggs, and vanilla extract. Using a large spatula, mix until a sticky dough forms. Fold in the dried fruit, coconut and nuts or chocolate chips. Allow the dough to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Using a standard size cookie scoop, form dough into balls and place onto the prepared baking sheets. Lightly press down (they won't spread a lot while they bake) to flatten.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 7-9 minutes or until the edges become lightly golden brown in color. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

*If using coconut sugar, allow it to dissolve in the warm coconut oil for 5 minutes before proceeding with the remaining steps.
-Feel free to swap the almond butter for peanut butter.
-Skip the cinnamon if you're using chocolate chips!
