Heart Healthy Cookies almost sounds like an oxymoron, but these cookies are made with healthy ingredients, have a great flavor and add a lot of fiber to your day.

Hearty Healthy Cookies Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 12 min
Ready In: 30 min

Servings: 30

Ingredients
1 med organic Egg, beaten
¼ cup Rice Milk
½ cup Organic Butter (1 stick), softened
½ cup Coconut Oil, warmed to a liquid consistency
½ cup Pure Honey
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1½ cup Oat Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Sea Salt
3 cup Rolled Oats
½ cup Walnut Pieces
¼ cup Sunflower Seeds
½ cup minced, peeled Apple

Directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix together wet ingredients, including softened butter, in a large bowl. In a separate, smaller bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and sea salt. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, stirring constantly, until you have a smooth batter. Add oats, nuts, seeds, and apple, stirring gently until mixture is uniform. Drop with a spoon onto a greased cookie sheet, and bake for 9- to 12 minutes. Cool briefly before devouring.

Tips & Notes
If you cannot tolerate any dairy, coconut oil can be used instead of butter with no change in flavor. Any nuts or seeds and many fruits can be used, so don’t be afraid to experiment. Add grated zucchini to moisten and add flavor to these cookies.
