Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, lightly mashed ( 1/3 cup mashed)
  • 2 tbsp softened coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 dried cranberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Combine the oats, almond meal, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside
  3. Combine the mashed avocado, coconut oil, maple syrup and brown sugar in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat for about 2 minutes, until creamy. Add the flax egg and continue beating for another minute
  4. Add the oat mixture and mix until until well incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips and cranberries using a spatula or wooden spoon
  5. Working with a tablespoon and a half of dough at a time (use a small ice cream scoop if you have on in hand), form approximately 15 balls.
