Serves 2-3 Dozen | Prep Time | Cook Time 10-12 minutes


3/4 C Apple Sauce, Unsweetened Natural
¼ C Raw Natural Honey
2 Egg Whites
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
½ tsp Almond Extract
1 ½ C White Whole Wheat Flour
1 tsp Kosher Salt
½ tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Baking Soda
1 C Cooked Quinoa (Red Quinoa if Available)
1 C Old Fashioned Oats
1 C Dried Cranberries or Dried Fruit of Choice
½ C Slivered Raw Almonds or Raw Nut of Choice
1 Tbsp Almond Milk, Vanilla Unsweetened or Flavor of Choice

Mix first five ingredients (wet ingredients) in a mixer until well blended.

2. Add flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Pulse mixture until just combined.

3. Add remaining ingredients until combined. Do not over mix.

4. If mixture seems too dry, fold in a very small amount of almond milk. Mixture should be moist but thick.

5. Drop heaping tablespoons of mixture onto ungreased, non-stick baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until edges begin to lightly brown.
