You gals, I was SO bummed when I pulled these cookies out of the oven. I’ve failed at cookies over 50 times so seeing these as flat as they were made me feel defeated yet again. 🥺😫 Instead of tossing right away I decided to let them cool so I could at least have a bite. First bite sent my tastebuds straight to a bakery. #whatrobinbakes lives on!

Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies (Recipe adapted from @themindfulhapa’s PB Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies):

  • 1 cup cinnamon snickerdoodle cashew almond butter
  • 1 egg, Chino Valley Ranchers soy free, organic, & free range
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup rolled GF oats 
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Half a chocolate bar of choice
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides (optional)
  • Pink himalayan sea salt flakes to top

Directions:

  •  Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Using a hand mixer, mix together cinnamon snickerdoodle cashew almond butter, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and collagen peptides. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, mix again.
  • Stir in the remaining dry ingredients: rolled oats, baking soda, sea salt (not the flakes!), and chopped dark chocolate bar.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to form equal size balls, place on cookie sheet, and slightly press down so they are flat.
  • Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until cookies have started to brown.

PS: I took this photo myself using a tripod. I held one of the legs between my teeth and the other two were resting on my belly. That was a sight to see for sure. 😂👋🏻 #doitforthegram
