Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (or gluten free flour blend)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon powdered cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter or vegan butter, at room temp

  4. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl, and mix on low speed until just combined. Add the oats and mix to combine.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips, raisins, and sprouted pumpkin seeds by hand.
  6. Cover and chill the dough in the fridge for at least 45 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  8. Scoop large balls of dough (about 2-3 tablespoons each). Place at least two inches apart on the cookie sheets.
  9. Bake for about 13-15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool. Sprinkle each cookie with flakey sea salt if using.
  10. Keep cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.
