I'm the hugest fan of a good high energy, high fiber, high protein breakfast cookie (or snack really!). I've tried out a few recipes but need to stick to something that's grain free (and I didn't want all the sugar either).
I found this recipe and fell in love. I made a couple of changes to make it 100% what I want and make a batch almost every week (and freeze to have them ready for when I need them too).
I hope you love it as much as I do!
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup blanched almond flour ( or 1/2 cup quinoa flour)
1/2 apple sauce (if you want it just a touch sweeter add 4 tablespoons maple syrup)
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup pecans (or nut of your choice)
1/2 pumpkin seeds (or pine nuts!)
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2-1 cup dried fruit (raisins, dried cranberries or other dried fruit – I LOVE apricots so I use those)
3 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 350
In your Kitchen Aid mix all the dry ingredients EXCEPT baking soda
Add apple sauce
Add peanut butter and coconut
Add baking soda
Add dried fruit
Make palm size balls (size of about a racquetball) and flatten into 1 inch discs non-stick baking sheet (They don’t flatten out so make them about the size you want).
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. DON'T over bake them. They will become a bit dry so watch out for that!
