Yields1 Serving
Prep Time20 minsCook Time25 minsTotal Time45 mins

 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
 2 cups gluten-free oat flour
 ¾ cup raisins
 ½ cup hemp seeds
 ¼ cup chia seeds
 2 tsp baking powder
 2 tsp cinnamon
 2 tsp fresh orange zest
 ½ tsp Celtic sea salt
 ¼ tsp nutmeg
 1 cup applesauce
 ½ cup pure maple syrup
 ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

Grab a large bowl and combine all dry ingredients. Stir until combined.

3

Zest 1 medium orange and add to mixture. Stir in semi-sweet chips, raisins, applesauce and maple syrup.

4

Use a spoon or small cookie scoop to transfer mixture (about 1 to 1/14 Tbsp.) onto baking sheet. Gently press down to make cookie shape. Bake until golden brown, about 14-15 minutes.

5

Remove from heat and transfer to cooling rack. Once cookies have completely cooled. Package in servings (2 cookies) or double the batch and freeze half.

NOTES: I like to mix things up based off what I have on hand in my pantry. You can swap maple syrup with raw honey or chocolate chips for carob chips. I will even switch up the fruit by swapping raisins for finely chopped dried apricots or dates. It just really depends on the level of sweetness you want and what you have on hand.
