  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup almond butter or peanut butter or sunflower seed butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup apple butter or apple sauce
  • 3 tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips optional
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds or any other kind of chopped nut


  • Preheat oven to 325°F. 
  • To a stand mixer add all of the ingredients.
  • Mix until combined. Use a large cookie scoop (3T scoop) and scoop dough into balls.
  • Place the balls of dough on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Use palm of your hand and flatten the cookies into disks (These cookies don’t spread. Shape them how you want because that’s how they’ll come out of the oven.) I do about 1/2 inch thickness. Bake for 13 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.


Store cookies at room temp in an airtight container for 3-4 days and in fridge for 1 week.
Can freeze cookies after baking them, store in an airtight container or ziplock bag. Will last 3 months.
