- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup chopped hazelnuts (or almonds)
- ¼ cup sunflower seeds
- ¼ cup pomegranate seeds
Prep + Bake
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Add the yogurt, banana, honey, dates, egg white and vanilla into a small food processor. Process until the dates have broken down into small pieces.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, almond flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, sunflower seeds and chopped hazelnuts.
- Stir the yogurt mixture into the oat mixture until well combined. Then, gently stir in the pomegranate seeds. Your dough will be quite wet.
- Drop the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet with a small ¼ measuring cup. Flatten with a fork.
- Bake until the cookies feel just set, about 12 – 13 minutes. Immediately transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely & ENJOY!
*Tip ~ Cookies will keep fresh in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, after this they are best frozen.
