Ingredients

1/2 cup white flour (all purpose) 65 g
1 1/2 cup rolled oats, ground 150 g
1/2 cup sunflower seed butter 140 g
4 egg whites
1/2 cup maple syrup 125 mL
1 tsp vanilla extract 5 mL
2 tbsp coconut oil 30 mL

3 tbsp pumpkin seeds 26 g
1/8 tsp salt 0.4 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to make the oat flour.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175ºC/350º. Line one or two baking sheets with parchment paper. Depending on the required amount, you may have to bake in batches.
  2. Put the rolled oats in a food processor. Pulse until oat flour is formed.
  3. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, including the oat flour. Form about 10 cookies per baking sheets then place them on the baking sheet. Lightly press down on the cookies to flatten them a little bit.
  4. Bake in the middle of the oven until the cookies turn light brown around the edges, about 15 min. Let the cookies stand 2 min on the sheet, then transfer them to a rack, using a spatula. Let cool down 30 min before serving.
