Beyond scoring points for convenience and presentation, once made, these treats are about as healthy as cookies can get! Less-nutritious ingredients have been replaced with alternatives such as coconut oil, oats, and flaxseed. Use any color M&Ms you prefer—red and green are the obvious choice for Christmas—and be sure to include a tag with additional ingredients and baking directions. Find free printable tags here.
Makes: 1 dozen mason jar mixes (1 jar yields about 1 dozen cookies)
Ingredients for the mix:
6 cups coconut sugar (1/2 cup each)
9 teaspoons baking soda (3/4 teaspoon each)
2 1/4 cups milled flax seed (3 tablespoons each)
18 cups coats (1 1/2 cups each)
24 ounces chocolate chips (2 ounces each) (Dre recommends Enjoy Life brand)
24 ounces colored M&Ms (2 ounces each)
1. Fill mason jars with ingredients in order listed, starting with coconut sugar on the bottom. Press down each layer tightly as you go. (A pestle works well for this.) Screw on lids.
2. Attach tags with additional ingredients and baking directions, found here.
