Sweets are a rarity in this house, but every once in a while temptation strikes. I am glad I have a few safe options on standby for those days. This recipe is based upon a recipe in Pamela Salzman’s cookbook; Kitchen Matters.

  2. Cream the coconut oil and sugar until light and fluffy, about three minutes. Add chia seeds, vanilla and blend.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Add to the oil/sugar mixture.
  4. Add the oats, plus any other mix-ins.
  5. Scoop about two tablespoons of dough to form a small ball, then slightly flatten.
  6. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, depending on how done you prefer your cookies to be. Allow to cool before enjoying.
