Maple Nut Oaties


  • 1 cup toasted rolled oats.  I just toast them in the toaster oven set on 350° for a few minutes.  Watch them as they burn easily.
  • 1/2 cup nut butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup chocolate/carob chips or dried fruit (One really good combo is cashew butter with dried pineapple.  Yum!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt (omit if using salted nut butter)
  • Pre-heat oven to 325°.
  • Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Scoop cookie dough by TBSP (I actually use a melon ball scooper) onto parchment or Silpat lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes, and then I just pick them up and form into balls before placing on cooling rack.
