Maple Walnut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies {gf, v}

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

I’ve been on a maple spiced kick lately, and these cookies just made this flavor even better. These cookies are made with sweet potato! The sweet potato adds a perfect moistness to the cookies, but they’re still nice and chunky. This recipe is lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup and dates, as well. You’ll also find many other nutrient dense ingredients in these cookies, such as hearty oats and walnuts, flaxseed meal, raw almond butter, and spices. This is such a fun flavor combo, and you’re sure to love these chunky, but gooey cookies! They’re super simple too, so stick around. Per usual, they cookies are vegan and gluten free friendly.
