Yield ~30 cookies
- 1¼ cup oats (plain Quaker oats or comparable)
- 1 cup almond butter (or your favorite nut butter)
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 4 tbsp apple sauce (no sugar added)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1½ tsp baking soda
- Zest of 4 oranges
- ½ cup dried cranberries
- ½ cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Mix all the ingredients together in a medium sized bowl.
Use a spoon (or your hand) to form large marble sized portions of the cookie dough. If you’re using your hands, I suggest spraying them with cooking spray to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands, and enabling you to better form round ball shapes (it’s a naturally gooey mixture due to the almond butter).
Space the dough mounds equally on a baking sheet, usually 12-15 at a time.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Allow to cool on the baking sheet for ~5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
