  • ¼ tsp. maple extract
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Prepare a large cookie sheet with a non-stick mat or parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk oats, shredded coconut, chopped walnuts, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt until fully combined. In a separate bowl, mix melted coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and maple extract until thick and smooth.
