  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • ¾ cup oats
  • ½ cup sugar-free chocolate chunks


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small dish, combine applesauce and ground flaxseed and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine sunflower butter, coconut sugar, vanilla, and applesauce mixture. Mix in baking soda, salt and oats. Add chocolate chunks and mix until combined.
