  1. Line baking sheets with parchment paper (a healthy non-stick option available at grocery stores).
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Using electric beaters, combine butter with apple butter.
  3. Beat in sugar.
  4. Add eggs, beating well after each. Add vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, raisins and seeds.
  5. Gradually stir dry ingredients into egg mixture. Drop heaping tablespoons two inches (5 cm) apart onto baking sheets; flatten with the back of a spoon.
  6. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to racks to cool.
  7. Store in an airtight container for up to seven days, or freeze for up to four weeks.
