Everything Cookies

Jill Dalton
These cookies are called Everything Cookies because they have a little bit of everything in them. What they don’t have, is gluten or oil! There is a tiny bit of sugar if you include the chocolate chips and cranberries but other than that, they are sweetened by banana and dried fruit.
These cookies were inspired by a recipe my grandma used to make called Cowboy Cookies. They were a basic oatmeal cookie but she added anything she had left over like a handful of raisins, the remainder of what was left in the shredded coconut bag, walnuts and sometimes even potato chip crumbles!  They were soooo yummy!
This version of her cookie is all whole food goodness. Heck, you could even eat them for breakfast.

Can I use something other than almond meal? I am sensitive to almonds.

Oh my gosh. These are now my favorite cookies! I added 1/2 tsp coarse salt and made a few substitutions to make them ‘tree nut free.’ They’re so so good. My food processor was full to the brim, but did a fine job! I love everything about them (except rolling the balls, but they’re worth it).

Can i use quick oats?

Do you think pumpkin purée could be substituted for the banana?

Thank you, the cookies look great can’t wait to make them.

Jill, would you share the brand and where you purchase your chocolate chips? The stores near me do not carry them, so if you order them off of the internet, please share the link.

Thank you!

I did not have all the ingredients on hand so I used cranberries, walnuts, chocolate chips, coconut, and pepitas. Perfection! Loved them so much. Thanks for another great recipe Jill! Between this and your blizzard, my families’ sweet tooth has never been so healthfully satisfied.

Can you tell me what kind of food processor you use?

Jill Dalton January 27, 2019 - 7:59 pm

I have a Cuisinart 12 cup Elite. It works really well =)

Lydia D June 15, 2019 - 2:23 am

These were so easy to throw together! I didn’t gogi berries or macadamia nuts, so I added chopped dates and walnuts. They held together really well for shaping. Really wholesome, all healthy ingredients. I made them for my nephews, and they loved them!

How do you store them, room temp or refrigerated?

Jill Dalton June 19, 2020 - 6:24 pm

It is better to keep them in the fridge in an airtight container so they will last longer.

Sandra Marks January 14, 2021 - 10:08 pm

Made this recipe from your new cookbook. This cookie really does have everything in it! 🙂
Really good cookies. Excellent for a mid afternoon treat with a cup of tea or coffee. I baked a few and then put the rest in the freezer for when they are needed.

Hi I just made this recipe and it’s delicious! I didn’t have cranberries so I used dark chocolate covered mangoes and I didn’t use any chocolate chips. I did add a heavy sprinkling of Ceylon cinnamon and these cookies are amazing. Just one cookie after dinner hit the spot and while I can’t wait to eat more I’m both full and satisfied.

Absolutely delicious! The chocolate chips actually make them quite decadent! (and very appealing to kids)

Liane Rollin December 29, 2021 - 1:59 pm

Ces biscuits sont tellement bons. Merci pour cette belle recette!

Karyn January 27, 2022 - 12:34 pm

Omg these cookies are absolutely delicious! They are now my family’s new favorite cookie… and we didn’t even add the chocolate chips! I also used dried cherries instead of cranberries. Thank you so much, these really are fantastic and they are so easy to make.

These cookies are divine!!! I made a few subs. I used raisins for the dried cranberries, dried apricots for the goji berries and walnuts for the macadamia nuts. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!!!

Linda July 8, 2023 - 12:58 pm

Fantastic taste! I used a cookie scoop then flattened. Perfect IMO, chewy on the inside, crunchy on the outside.
Thank you for sharing your amazing talent!
