Prep time: , Cook time: , Total time:


Created by Peggy Kotsopoulos for California Almonds to seize the afternoon. #CarpePM with almonds!



1 cup (250 mL) unsalted almond butter

2 tablespoons (30 mL) ground chia (mixed with 1/3 cup [75 mL] water)

1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) cinnamon

1/2 cup (125 mL) maple syrup or coconut sugar

Pinch sea salt

1 cup (250 mL) 100% rolled oats

1 cup (250 mL) coconut flakes, unsweetened

1/2 cup (125 mL) dark chocolate chips (semi-sweet)

1/3 cup (75 mL) slivered almonds



Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Prepare a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or greased with about 1 tablespoon coconut oil.

In a large bowl, mix almond butter, chia mixture, cinnamon, maple syrup or coconut sugar, and sea salt until well combined, then mix in remaining ingredients. You may want to mix with your hands to ensure the ingredients are well combined and a dough-like consistency is formed.

Roll into golf ball–size balls, then press flat on the prepared cookie sheet. 

Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely before eating.
