Ingredients

  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 5 Tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons dark maple syrup
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cup rolled oats (old fashioned oats)
  • 8 oz roasted strawberries (recipe follows)
  • ½ cup sliced almonds

Roasted Strawberries:

  • 8 oz strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 ½ teaspoon granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. In another bowl, combine coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup, applesauce, ground flaxseed, and vanilla.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Stir to combine. Fold in rolled oats, roasted strawberries, and sliced almonds until evenly distributed.
  • Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to portion out the dough. Use your hands to form round patties, about ½-inch in thickness. Place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes. Allow cookies to slightly cool on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool to room temperature. Enjoy cookies warm or at room temperature.

Roasted Strawberries:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat. Toss strawberries in sugar. Spread into an even layer on baking sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes until strawberries have softened and expelled juices. Cool. Transfer to an airtight container and keep stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. 

Notes

Baked cookies can remain at room temperature for 12 hours. Place any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Eat chilled, bring to room temperature, or gently reheat in the microwave.
