They’re great and they are easy and healthy. No added sugar, and you can add whatever you want to the mix to suit your pantry contents.
I eat these for breakfast, they make a great snack and as I was writing this my mind wandered into all the things you could do to them to make them all sorts of wonderful! Looks like I’m going to have to make these again soon 🙂
Banana Oat Cookies
3 Large, ripe bananas, well mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut oil – barely warm, not solid or olive oil
2 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup coconut, finely shredded, unsweetened
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
6-7oz dark chocolate, chopped
In a large bowl, combine the bananas, vanilla extract and coconut oil. Set aside.
In another bowl whisk together the oats, almond meal, shredded coconut, cinnamon, salt and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined.
Fold in the chocolate chunks (and whatever else you like).
Drop spoonfuls of dough onto lined baking sheets.
Bake for 12-14 mins. (I find these can’t really be overcooked, and I like ’em best over rather than underdone).
