  • Mixing Bowls
  • Spatula
  • Parchment Paper
  • Baking Trays


  • 1 cup Rolled oats
  • ½ cup Almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon Baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Sea Salt
  • ½ cup Almond butter
  • 2 tablespoon Maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • ½ cup Chopped dried fruit and nuts of your choice, strawberries, apricots, dates, blueberries, pumpkin seeds


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the rolled oats, almond flour, baking soda, and salt.
    1 cup Rolled oats, ½ cup Almond flour, ½ teaspoon Baking soda, ½ teaspoon Sea Salt
  • Add the almond butter, maple syrup, honey, and vanilla into a separate bowl and whisk to combine.
    ½ cup Almond butter, 2 tablespoon Maple syrup, 2 tablespoon Honey, 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • Pour over the dry ingredients and mix to form a rather thick dough.
  • Fold in the dried fruit and seeds.
    ½ cup Chopped dried fruit and nuts of your choice, strawberries, apricots, dates, blueberries, pumpkin seeds
  • Scoop the dough into balls or roll by hand. If using clean hands, get them slightly wet so that the dough doesn't stick as easily!
  • Arrange cookies on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, allowing two inches between each cookie and sprinkle with flakey sea salt. For a flatter, less tall cookie press the dough down gently before baking.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, watching for the edge to start to brown.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool for 5-10 minutes before enjoying!


Frequently asked questions
  • Do you need to chill the cookie dough? Usually, I’d recommend chilling the cookie dough in the fridge to solidify the butter and prevent the cookies from spreading while baking. That step isn't necessary for these cookies because the almond butter won’t melt and spread as quickly as butter.
  • Can you freeze the raw oatmeal cookies? Yes! Make the dough as normal, then roll it into balls and place them on a baking sheet. Set the sheet in the freezer until the dough balls are frozen, then transfer them to a freezer-safe bag. 
  • Can you bake frozen oatmeal cookie dough? Yes, the frozen dough can be baked right from frozen. All you need to do is add a few minutes to the baking time.
