Apple & Pecan Breakfast Cookies

makes 6-7 cookies

Hi everyone! Sorry I have been so MIA. Life has been crazy lately! Last week, B had to go to Charleston for work and I got to tag along. It was a blast and I got to explore the city even more! 

This week, I am sharing a breakfast cookie recipe that is great for busy mornings or mid-day snacks. Even better, these are packed with all the Fall ingredients: apple pie spice, apples, dates and pecans!

What You Need
1 cup old fashioned oats (I did gluten free)
2 TBS ground flax seed
1/4 TSP salt
1/2 TBS apple pie spice
1 egg
1/4 cup apple sauce (I made my own using this recipe)
2 1/2 TBS coconut sugar
2 TBS coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup apples, diced
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup dates, chopped

1. Preheat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a medium/large bowl, combine the oats, flax seed, salt and apple pie spice.
3. In a small/medium bowl, whisk together the egg, apple sauce, coconut sugar and coconut oil until combined.
4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
5. Stir in the apples, pecans and dates. 
6. Grab a handful of dough and squeeze it into a ball. Place on the baking sheet and slightly flatten with your hand. Continue with the remaining cookies. 
7. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until slightly brown and holding together well. Let cool for 5 minutes and then enjoy!
* I store my leftovers in the fridge to keep them fresh.
