Ingredients
  • 1⅓ cups flour - I used ½ cup quinoa flour, ½ cup buckwheat flour and ⅓ cup oat flour, but I've tried it with many different flours and flour mixtures and had success with all of them.
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1.5 cups pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • pinch sea salt
  • ¼ cup chia seeds + ¾ cup water
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground vanilla
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ginger
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper
  2. Mix chia seeds and water and let sit for 4-5 minutes or until it thickens
  3. In a large bowl, mix flour, oats, pumpkin seeds, raisins, walnuts, sunflower seeds and salt.
  4. In a blender, blend the water+chia mixture, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and spices.
  5. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined and there is no visible flour left.
  6. Place heaping spoonfuls of the dough onto your baking sheet and use a fork to flatten and shape the cookies (if it sticks then dip the fork in hot water).
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies start to brown.
