Description

This version has less sugar and butter than the original.


Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp ground flax
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¾ cup dried apricots
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  1. Mix together the flax and water in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, pulse together the oats, flour, salt, baking soda, and sunflower seeds.
  3. Add in the apricots, raisins, coconut, and chia seeds. Pulse until the apricots are chopped into small pieces.
  4. Stir together the water/flax mixture, melted butter, canola oil, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla.
  5. Add to the food processor and pulse to combine.
  6. Grease mini muffin tins (recipe makes ~48 bites). Using a small cookie scoop, place one scoop in each tin. 
  7. Bake for 11-12 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit on until the edges just start to turn a golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and using the backside of the cookie scoop, press the tops down (see video to get the idea).
  9. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then flip over onto a cutting board to release them from the pan.
