Recipe type: Cookies
Cuisine: American
Serves: 18 cookies
Ingredients
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon, ground
  • ¾ cup whole wheat
  • 1½ cup old fashion oats (I used Trader Joe's rolled oats)
  • 1 cup pear, peeled, cored, diced small (1 large pear)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl; add coconut oil, coconut sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Mix with a spoon, until well combined.
  4. Add to the same bowl, baking soda salt, cinnamon and whole wheat flour; mix until well combined. Stir in pear and oatmeal.
  5. With a large cookie scoop (I used 3 tbsp. capacity scoop), scoop out the dough and pat it into the scoop to form a firm cookie. Place onto prepared baking sheet, spaced about 2" apart. I put 9 cookies per baking sheet. Note: I used my fingers to pat the top of the cookie to flatten a bit and to make sure it is held together.
  6. Bake in oven for 10 minutes, until bottom of cookie turns lightly brown. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes; place on cookie rack until completely cooled.
Notes
You can make the cookies gluten-free by using gluten-free oats and flour.
