Chock full of healthy ingredients including oatmeal, flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp hearts, real butter, coconut, dark chocolate chips, dried cranberries and mixed nuts. Rich in essential healthy fats, fiber, antioxidants and protein power, and loaded with taste. MMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!
In a large mixing bowl melt 1 stick of real butter
Add to this 7oz of flaked coconut
1/2 cup of oatmeal (not cooked)
1/3 cup of hemp hearts
1/3 cup of crushed flaxseeds, 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
2 eggs
¼ cup water
Stir all of this very well then add the following ingredients
1/4 cup of oatmeal ground to flour in the food processor along with half a dark chocolate bar
1 bag of Betty Crocker cookie mix – oatmeal choc chip
1 cup of dried cranberries
1 cup of mixed nuts chopped (pecans, almonds, filberts, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, cashews etc. whatever you like)
1 cup of Ghirardelli Dark chocolate chips (more if you like lots of chocolate)
Roll into little balls and place on cookie sheet. You can freeze these on the cookie sheet first and then store in a ziplock baggie until your cookie craving overwhelms you. Freezing them separately on the cookie sheet first prevents them from sticking to each other.
Cooking time and temps
Toaster oven – 235*-17 minutes
