Applesauce Energy Cookie

Dry mixture
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free oats
  • 1 cup almond flour (I used NuNaturals Green Banana Flour)
  • 1/2 cup hemp seed
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt (if you aren’t using them during runs use 1/4 tsp)
  • 1/2 cup mini carob chips (dairy free!)
Wet mixture
  • 1/2 cup creamy Once Again Nut Butter (whatever kind you like, almond, peanut, tahini)
  • 6 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Vanilla NuStevia to taste
  • 1 large egg (or 1 flax egg to make vegan)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix together all dry ingredients
  • In a second bowl (or food processor) mix together all wet ingredients
  • Pour your dry into the wet and use a spatula to fold in
  • Use a cookie dough scoop to drop cookies on to a sprayed baking sheet
  • These won’t spread or puff, so it’s ok to flatten them, unless you want more of a ball shape.
  • Bake 9 minutes
  • Best stored in the fridge

I love these because they freeze well. Pull one out and place in a tiny zip loc, let it thaw while you run!
