Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup (packed) coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup brown rice syrup or more maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar optional, can omit to reduce sweetness
  • 1 - 1½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup oat flour see note
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon or ¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp flax meal
  • 1/4 cup pecans or walnuts lightly broken or chopped (omit, or for a nut-free version use ¼ cup of sunflower seeds)
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds if not substituting for pecans, above
  • ¼ cup raisins can substitute more seeds or chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the coconut butter, maple syrup, brown rice syrup, sugar (if using), and vanilla. Mix on low speed to incorporate for about a minute. In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, except the nuts and seeds, and stir well. Add about half of the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Churn with the mixer to start to incorporate, and then add the remaining dry mixture, as well as the nuts and seeds. Continue to stir on low speed, just until the mixture comes together and forms a dough on the paddle.  Scoop spoonfuls (1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons in size; a cookie scoop works very well but isn’t essential), and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 14 minutes, then remove from the oven and let the cookies cool for about a minute on the baking sheet. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
