Why Nut-Free Cookies
Finding safe and delicious treats can be challenging for people with nut allergies. Nuts are a common ingredient in many baked goods, including cookies, making it difficult to indulge in a sweet treat without fear of an allergic reaction. Fortunately, plenty of nut-free alternatives are just as delicious and satisfying. Like the cookies I am sharing today!
How to Make Nut-Free Vegan Trail Mix Cookies
These Nut-Free Vegan Trail Mix cookies are easily made by combining the dry ingredients including oat flour, oats, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder, monkfruit, sea salt, and flaxseeds. Next, you combine the wet ingredients, which are applesauce and seed butter. Incorporate the wet and dry ingredients together, then stir in your mixins, including roasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds, chopped dates, and chocolate chips.
Divide the batter into 14 circles on a baking sheet and bake for 14 minutes. Once the cookies are fully cool on the cookie sheet, they’re ready to eat!
Swaps and Substitutions
Not a fan of some of the mixins? There are plenty of swaps you can make to make these cookies more suitable to your tastes.
- M&Ms for chocolate chips (sort of like traditional GORP!)
- any other dried fruit for dates…cranberries, raisins, or chopped prunes would be good
- add in shredded or flaked coconut
- swap the sunflower and pumpkin seeds for nuts like walnuts, pecans, or almonds if you’re not nut-free!
