Maple Oatmeal Super Cookies


You may have noticed a theme this week. Between the French Toast Having Wings, King Chaga: Ruler Of The Land, and the old Create Your Own Burger Adventure we enjoyed yesterday. Yep. I have had super foods on the brain. I don’t know about you but I would so much rather eat a cacao nib filled cookie than pop a magnesium supplement. Food as medicine is one thing, but cookies as medicine… Oh wow!

Maple Oatmeal Super Cookies
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
3 Tbsp raw honey
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp (30 ml) finely ground flax seeds
3 Tbsp  whole flax seeds
1 Tbs chia seeds
2 Tbs cacao nibs
2 Tbs golden berries or goji berries (optional)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp fine sea salt

  • Preheat oven to 350F (180C).  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix all ingredients together with hands or spoon
  • Dollop about 1 Tbs worth onto cookie sheet and form into cookie shape- not too thin though as they do flatten as they cook
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes.

    Hahahahaha. Thanks to reading your blog for the last long while I have all but one ingredient for these cookies in my cupboard. I don’t know why I find that so funny. The missing ingredient is cocoa nibs. Funnily enough, I found out where they are sold here on Monday. Now I have the incentive to go buy some. Can’t wait to try these. Teeheehee.

    Those look awesome, and I actually have everything on hand to make them. I might even add some of the raw dehydrated coconut chips I found last night at the Organic market! (I know I can make my own, but there they were, and quite reasonably priced). Can you tell me how many cookies that recipe should make? I have a feeling they won’t last long! Thanks for all the great recipes, info and ideas!

    Do these cookies really rise in the oven? I’m trying to decide if it would be okay to omit the baking powder and baking soda. I’d prefer to make them raw, but they look so amazing in the photo that my tastebuds are craving the flavor of toasty oven-baked oats!

    • Meghan Telpner says:

      They don’t really rise much… I am sure you could omit it. Not sure how they’d be raw- I am personally not a massive fan of raw oats.

    Nom noms! Cookies as medicine are my kind of cookies!

    These look fantastic! I make a version very similar and I add chopped up dried figs…….also amazing!!!

    You can count me in for the tutorial — can’t wait!!!

  7. Jes says:

    Wow, those cookies look great! I love “healthy” cookies–the less sugar the better. And maple just is so wonderful.

    I dream about attending a Meghan Telpner workshop…someday. :)

    Hey Meghan,

    I want in for the tummy retreat! How do we sign up? (The link you provided with the details doesn’t say how you can pay/reserve a spot!)…Can’t wait!

    Funny that I just read you saying something about avoiding magnesium supplement when I just had one :P As a vegetarian (and a female!) I have to be careful as to what I eat so that I’m not too low on things like magnesium or iron. Do you have some tipps to what food supplies you with which nutrients?

    • Meghan Telpner says:

      Just better to get it from food than supplements. As long as your eating a variety of whole grains and vegetables- steamed and raw, you are a-okay.

  11. Andrea says:

    I just made a batch of these and they smell amazing! Of course, I’m only now just realizing that they probably don’t quite fit the rules of low-GI eating! Fortunately, I think my partner is going to be excited to have these (mostly) to himself.

  12. Deborah says:

    Just made another batch. This time I added some coconut. Very yummy!!!

    These cookies have been a lifesaver during my pregnancy. All of the women in my mothers group are constipated-but not me!

  14. Erin says:

    Just made these for a potluck tomorrow… but they are so good I’m not sure if they will make it… !

  15. Laura says:

    These cookies sound great. One question though, is the amount of rolled oats really only 1/2 cup or is that a misprint? It doesn’t seem like enough. Thank you.
