  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.
  2. To make oat flour: add 1 1/3 cup rolled oats to a food processor and process for 3-4 minutes until very fine.
  3. In a large bow, combine and mix the oat flour, rolled oats, baking soda, salt, flaxseed, and cinnamon.
  4. Add applesauce, mashed bananas, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Mix until just combined.
  5. Carefully fold in the frozen blueberries and let the batter sit for about 10 minutes (see notes below).
  6. Using a cookie scoop , scoop the dough and release onto the line baking sheet. Space them about 1-2 in. apart. Then using two fingers, gently press down to flatten sightly (the cookies will not spread as they bake).
  7. Bake for about 13 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown around the edges and bottom, and the top is set.
  8. Cool completely on a cooking rack. Store then in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 4-5 days. These cookies taste great at room temperature or warmed in the microwave for a few seconds.

Recipe Notes

Oats - You can use rolled oats and pulse them into oat flour. Or use store-bought oat flour in this recipe. The ratio should still be 1:1. 


Fruit - For best results, use pre-frozen fruit when making these cookies so that the fruit does not break up and the juices do not fold into the batter.


Gluten-Free - make sure the oats are certified gluten-free oats)
