  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup applesauce 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup carob powder
  • 1/4 cup Kosterina Organic Everyday Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 325 F. 

  2. 2

    To a medium bowl, add the sliced almonds, pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, apple sauce, egg, and vanilla extract and mix well to combine. 

  3. 3

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop the mixture onto the sheet to form 12 clusters. Use a spoon to press each cluster into an even layer. 

  4. 4

    Bake the cookies for about 12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool completely, then place in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes.  

  5. 5

    In a small bowl, combine the carob powder and Kosterina Everyday Extra Virgin Olive Oil and whisk until completely smooth. 

  6. 6

    Remove the chilled cookies from the oven and use a fork to dip the bottom of each cookie into the carob mixture. Place the cookies back onto the parchment-lined baking tray and return to the fridge to chill for at least 1 hour or until the carob is set.
