I come from a long line of chocoholics, and have 4 kids who love sweets. So I have found ways to sneak in some goodness to our favorite desserts! This is a recipe I made as a go-to when we are hankering for a midday pick-me-up and I need something to hold me over until dinner. Packed with nuts, seeds and oats, these buttery cookies are gooey and chocolately, and will leave you satisfying your sweet tooth and your appetite! Great for the busy, active family who needs sustained energy without the sugar high/crash!
2 Cups oats
3/4 cups walnuts
1/2 cups raisens
1 Cup almond flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup sugar or sweetener of choice
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup butter, softened *can substitute nut butter of choice
6 oz. (1/2 bag ) of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit.
Blend oats, walnuts, raisens, chia and flaxseed in a blender on pulse until it forms a consistent, crumbly dough
In a separate bowl, mix almond flour, sugar, salt and baking soda and sunflower seeds
Combine oat mixture with almond flour

Use a melon baller or spoon to form dough into balls
Cook for 10-12 minutes or until just firm.
