  • 4 cups rolled oats (not quick or instant oats)
  • 1 ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup Maple syrup

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Nutmeg
  • sea salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until uniform.

Recipe Notes

  • I use refined coconut oil to make these in order to avoid the coconut flavor but feel free to use unrefined coconut oil if that is your preference.
  • Oats are naturally gluten-free, however, often come in contact with grains that aren't during processing. If you are gluten-intolerant, be sure to look for and use gluten-free oats to make this recipe.
  • Store these cookies in the fridge if not consumed immediately.
