  • 1 ¼ cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¾ cup cane sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax seed meal + 2 tbsp water)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup chopped apples such as honeycrisp
  • ¼ cup finely chopped pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Prepare flax egg by mixing flax seed meal + water in a small bowl. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking soda and powder, salt, and spices. In a separate bowl, combine melted coconut oil, sugars, flax egg, vanilla, and milk. Pour wet mixture into dry. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, combine until a soft cookie dough forms. Fold in chopped apples and pecans. Use a cookie scoop to scoop dough onto the baking sheet. Slightly press down with the palm of your hand.

  3. Bake for 14-15 min. until light golden brown. Let cool for 3 min. before enjoying!
