Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 18


  • ½ cup peanut butter (no sugar added)
  • ½ cup cashew butter (no sugar added)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ cup dried cherries or dried cranberries
  • Cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add peanut butter, cashew butter, maple syrup (or honey), eggs and vanilla extract. Mix with a rubber spatula.
  • In a separate medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, pumpkin seeds, pecans, chia seeds, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.
  • In the large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir. Once combined, fold in the dried cherries (or cranberries).
  • Spray your clean hands with cooking spray or use a small ice cream scoop to create dough balls. Place them on the sheet pan and use your hands to flatten the dough in a round shape.
  • Bake for 10-13 minutes. Cookies will be done baking when the outside edges appear to be browning. Let cool for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!


Any nut butter can be used as well as any nut or seed. Feel free to use almond butter, walnuts or even sunflower seeds for a nut-free option.
Replace the cherries with another dried fruit, such as raisins, cranberries, dates, etc.
Cookies can be stored on the counter for 2-3 days in an airtight container or in the freezer for 2-3 months.
