Granola Cookies

After a day of indulgence, I like to reconnect with my inner-hippie. She's very zen, only wears flip flops, and talks long walks in the sunshine.

She loves these cookies.

Full of rolled oats, sunflower seed butter, and sweetened only with agave, these are cookies you can feel good about. Eat one...or four.

For some added adventure, you could add a half cup of dried fruit, dark chocolate chips, or use almond or peanut butter instead of the sunflower seed butter. I have a feeling this is a forgiving batter.

If you're feeling really frisky, dunk them in a glass of almond milk. I won't tell.

Granola Cookies

1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sunflower seed butter
1/4 cup agave
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until thoroughly combined.

Drop rounded tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Use a fork to gently flatten them to about 1/2 inch thick.

Bake 12 minutes- rotating cookie sheets midway through baking.

Makes ~27 cookies


  1. Granola Cookies - I like that. The first word sort of negates the second - to make you feel ok about having 5 in a row, no?

    Jokes aside, this is a great recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  2. For lack of a better term, a cookie they were named. Perhaps nibbly bits of healthy deliciousness is more appropriate, if not a bit long.
