Recipe and Photo by Avocado Skillet
Perfect for fall, these cookies are super easy to make, you just need one bowl and your oven. They are also made with healthier for you ingredients like oat and almond flour. Plus they are refined sugar free because they use coconut sugar.
1 flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flax + 2 ½ Tbsp water)
½ cup Artisana Organics Almond Butter (can sub another nut or seed butter except for tahini)
¼ cup maple syrup (can sub honey)
¼ cup coconut sugar (can sub brown sugar)
½ tsp vanilla
½ cup + 2 Tbsp oat flour
1 ½ tsp cinnamon
¼ cup almond flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 small apple - diced into small cubes
Make your flax egg by mixing together flax and water. Let sit refrigerated for 5-10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together your wet ingredients including flax egg until smooth.
Pour in dry ingredients except for apples. Mix again until smooth.
Lastly fold in apples.
Form 9-10 evenly sized cookies on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. The dough is very sticky, so work quickly and with wet hands.
Bake cookies for 12-15 minutes until they are golden on the edges and cooked through.
Cookies will come out a little lumpy so I reshaped mine into perfect circles with a cookie cutter, this step is optional. Let cookies cool for at least 10 minutes and dig in.
