Easy Loaded Oatmeal Cookies

Full Recipe

  • MAKES: 12
  • TOTAL TIME: 18
INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 cup butter, or ghee or coconut oil, melted

  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar

  • 2 tsp vanilla, or 1 tsp works!

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 1/2 cup quick oats*

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 cup raisins

  • 3 tbs pumpkin seeds

  • 1/4 cup dark mini chips

  • 2 tbs unsweetened shredded coconut

  • *Notes: I have not tried this recipe with rolled oats or anything other than quick oats so I can’t guarantee how they will turn out with a different variety, whatever you do, just don’t use steel cut oats!

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper

  • To a mixing bowl, add melted butter and coconut sugar and whisk until smooth and combined then stir in the vanilla & salt.

  • Next, roughly stir in the oats followed by the egg until all incorporated.

  • Fold in the raisins, pumpkin seeds, chocolate chips and shredded coconut.

  • Using a cookie or a larger spoon, drop the dough into 12 even rounds on the cookie sheet. Gently flatten each cookie out as they don’t spread much and flattening them yields a crisper cookie (on the outsides). Don’t worry about making them perfectly round, this will take you too much time and you want this recipe to be easy!

  • Bake for 8-9 minutes or until they’re golden brown.

    Remove from oven and let cool at least 30 seconds, if you can, before devouring them! Enjoy!
