Hearty cookies packed with whole grain oats, banana, walnuts, carrots, and cranberries for the perfect on-the-go breakfast or afternoon pick me up!




  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together chia and water. Set aside.
  3. Place banana in a medium mixing bowl and mash with a fork. Add applesauce, maple syrup and vanilla extract, stirring to combine. Stir in chia and water mixture.
  4. Add almond meal, oat flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Mix until just combined. Fold in walnuts, shredded carrot, coconut, and cranberries.
  5. Using wet hands, roll mixture into 16 medium to large balls of “dough”. They will a bit wet and sticky–that’s ok! Wet hands again to pat down cookies until they look round and smooth. Lightly flatten with hands. They won’t spread very much.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Store cooled cookies in an air-tight container in the fridge.
