Food To Be Fit: HIIT Cookies

These cookies are the definition of "everything but the kitchen sink". This is my take on Whole Foods' Spelt Power Cookie - and it is delicious. This is an excellent breakfast cookie, or something to grab pre-workout. But - just as with any cookie...too many cookies can be bad for you. As I wrote below, these cookies are not "perfect" looking. They spread out a lot, and need to be cut cleanly with a knife. Enjoy!

Wet Ingredients:

  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup raw honey
  • ¼ cup molasses (or add an extra ¼ cup raw honey)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 4 tsp vanillaDSC_0114

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cup oat flour
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp flax seed
  • 2 tbsp chia seedsDSC_0118
  • 1 cup large flake rolled oats


  • 1/3 cup crushed almonds
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup pecans
  • 4 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup raisinsDSC_0121
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 F.
  2. Melt your coconut oil in the microwave and let it cool to room temperature.DSC_0125
  3. Add the coconut sugar, honey and molasses to the coconut oil and mix.
  4. Whisk in the egg and add the almond and vanilla extract. Mix.
  5. Add the dry ingredients (oat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, flax, chia and oats) to the wet ingredient mixture.
  6. Mix to combine evenly.
  7. Add all your extra ingredients (almonds, walnuts, pecans, coconut, raisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and chocolate) to the mixture. Mix.
  8. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out balls of the batter onto your baking sheet.
  9. Using a water-dipped fork, squish down your cookies until they are ½ inch thick.DSC_0152
  10. Bake cookies for 20 minutes, until the batter no longer looks wet on top and the bottom is slightly golden.
Warning: these cookies are not round. They spread out SO much...nonetheless, still extremely delicious!
