  • 1/4 Cup Slivered almonds
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 Cup Natural almond butter
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 tsp Almond extract
  • 1/2 Cup + 2 Tbsp Quick oats (not old fashioned)
  • 1/2 Cup Udi's Gluten Free Vanilla Granola
  • 1/4 Cup Cacao nibs
  • Pinch of salt


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Spread the almonds onto a small baking sheet, and the coconut flakes onto a separate sheet. Bake until they are both golden brown, about 5-8 minutes for the almonds and only 2-3 minutes for the coconut. They both burn quickly, so watch closely! Once toasted, reduce the heat to 325 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, or a silpat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the almond butter, honey, applesauce and almond extract until smooth and creamy.
  • Add in the quick oats, granola, cacao nibs, pinch of salt and the toasted almonds and coconut. Stir until well mixed and a sticky, thick dough forms.
  • Drop the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet in 10 large mounds.  Use a fork to press the cookies out about 1/3 inch thick. Make sure to use the fork to press in the sides around the cookie to make sure they stick together.
  • Bake at 325 degrees until the edges are golden and the top of the cookie feels "set," about 23-24 minutes.  Let cool COMPLETELY on the pan.
