Easy loaded breakfast cookies jam-packed with all the good things.  Nutritious and delicious.  Gluten free, paleo, and vegan.


  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, ghee, or coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp nut butter or sunflower seed butter
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds (I use THIS brand)
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds (or flax meal)
  • 1 cup almond flour (I use THIS blanched brand)
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder (like this)
  • 1 tsp baking powder (I like THIS corn free brand)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut shreds (like this)
  • 3 tbsp cacao nibs (like this )
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup nuts and seeds of choice, chopped (I used sunflower seeds and pecans)


  1. Preheat oven to 350’F.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together applesauce, maple syrup, melted fat of choice, nut butter, chia seeds, and flax meal until well incorporated.  Allow to sit for 5 minutes to let chia and flax to soften. Then add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.
  3. Using a cookies scoop, scoop out small mounds onto prepared baking sheet.  Flatten slightly with fingers as cookies do not flatten on their own. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden on the bottom.
  4. Allow to cool a bit before serving.  Enjoy!


  • The amount of cookies you get depends on how big you want them. THIS is the cookie scoop set I have.  I used the medium one and got 12 three inch cookies.
  • I prefer raw cacao nibs as raw cacao is so nutritious.  You can also use mini chocolate chips if you like.
