Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup fine almond flour
  • 1/4 cup Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
  • 3 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries no added sugar
  • 1/4 cup mini M&Ms
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  • Beat the egg, peanut butter, and coconut oil together until smooth.
  • Add honey, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder and continue beating until totally combined.
  • Add flour, almond flour, collagen peptides and oats. Mix in until just combined.
  • Use a wooden spoon to add in the dried cranberries, mini M&Ms, and walnuts. Fold until mixed in completely.
  • Use a large cookie scoop (3 TBS) to place round balls of the cookie dough on the prepared baking sheets. Lightly press down on the cookie balls to flatten slightly. Make sure cookies are at least an inch apart on all sides so they don't run together. 
  • Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes, allowing to cook until edges are slightly golden brown but not dark. They will not be hard when you remove from the oven. 
  • Immediately move from baking sheet very carefully and place on a cooling rack to allow to completely harden. 

Notes

Substitute the mini M&Ms with sugar-free mini chocolate chips to remove the added sugar from the recipe.
