Ingredients

  • 1/3 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1/4 Cup Nut Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Molasses
  • 1 Teaspoon Grated Ginger
  • 1/2 Cup Date Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 2/3 Cups Oat Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Flaxseeds
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the applesauce, nut butter, molasses, ginger, date sugar, and vanilla extract. Add the flaxseeds, oat flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until combined.
  3. Scoop into 2-tablespoon-sized balls and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten, if desired – the cookies won’t spread much during baking. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Enjoy!
