Tropical Strawberry, Pineapple + White Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

 

Tropical Strawberry Pineapple + White Chocolate Oat Cookies
These delicious oatmeal cookies have a nice tropical flavor and are so easy to make. They are great as a sweet treat, snack or even breakfast! The dried pineapple caramelizes while these cookies bake and are complemented by the slight tartness of the freeze-dried strawberries. Each bite of this cookie has sweet pineapples, strawberries and white chocolate chips, while the tahini adds a nutty, salty undertone. If tahini isn’t your thing, or you don’t have any on hand, swap it for almond butter or whatever nut/seed butter you like. Bonus: these cookies are vegan refined-sugar free AND gluten-free!

  • ¾ cup oat flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar

  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped dried pineapple
  • ½ cup freeze dried strawberries, broken into smaller pieces

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.

  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients — oats, oat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In another bowl combine the wet ingredients — flaxseed egg, maple syrup, tahini, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  • Add the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Gently stir in the chopped dried pineapple, freeze dried strawberries and white chocolate chips.
  • Place dough in the fridge to setup for 30 minutes (do not skip this step).
  • Use a portion scoop to scoop dough onto the prepared sheet pans.
  • Press the cookies down gently, adding some extra white chocolate chips into the tops if you like.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are golden.
  • Allow cookies to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before moving them to a wire rack and cool.
