Athlete Cookies

Ever finish a long run, and just NEED a cookie? Well, if you can't relate, you can stop reading. If you know the feeling, these cookies are a MUST. Even picky Dillon loves them. I can't take all the credit, my friend Annika (wife of Pro Athlete Aaron Braun), invented the recipe when she became gluten intolerant. So YES, they are gluten free (and can be dairy free if you get the right kind of choc chips!) Ready, set, bake!

  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 2 Cups Gluten Free Rolled Oats (or any oats)
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons Flax Seeds or Hemp Seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • Walnuts and Chocolate Chips (your desired amount, or add your other favorite mix-ins!)

Coaching: Preheat oven to 350, mix all ingredients together. If it is too dry, add more applesauce/honey/peanut butter. Plop onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Bake for 10-15mins... Take them to your next group run and they will be devoured!
