Peanut Butter Chocolate Rye Flakes Cookies


  • 6 to 8 tablespoons Sucanat to taste**
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Scant 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves coarsely chopped, or chopped dates or chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled rye flakes
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour scoop & scrape! don’t spoon & scrape, or your cookies will spread.
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4). Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine Sucanat, agave, applesauce, coconut oil, vanilla, salt, and garam masala.
  • Add pecans and flakes on top. Sift flour and baking powder on top. Stir until well combined. Let stand about 10 minutes.
  • Scoop a generous 1/4 cup of packed dough per cookie, place on the prepared sheet. Flatten slightly since the cookies won’t spread a lot while baking. Repeat with remaining 5 cookies.
  • Bake 18 minutes, until the edges and tops of the cookies are golden brown. Let cool on the sheet for at least 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • These are best served at room temperature. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
