There is not one person I know, that doesn’t love cookies. Ok, mostly we are talking about the store bought ones, since some of you consider making them yourself too messy or demanding, or just don’t know how to start.
The bumper with buying the cookies from the store consists in the fact that they have a looot of added sugar and other ingredients that are not ideal for you or are not appropriate for when having a healthy lifestyle.
This is why I hereby present to you another healthy cookie recipe, ideal for when you want a nutritious snack or a quick breakfast.
By the way, before we go on with explaining the recipe, you can check also my previous oat-flakes cookie recipe here. They do have some similarities so it might come in handy if you feel you do not have all the ingredients for this one.
Ok, so now let me tell you how you make these beauties .
Step 1: make the dough
Smash 3 very ripe bananas and mix them
with 2 eggs.
Meld 50 g of dark, quality chocolate together with 50 g of raw coconut oil, than add to the banana and egg mixture stirring until well combined.
Continue with adding 300 g of oatmeal ( I basically blend the oat flakes until they have a floury texture) 1 teaspoon of baking powder / vanilla essence and pinch of salt, than stir for about 3 minutes, until everything is combined.
Since I had at my disposal, I used 1 tablespoon pure dates syrup, but feel free to use acorn or maple syrup as well. If you really do not have any syrup home, you can use 1/2 spoon of honey
For some extra taste, I added 25 g of chopped white chocolate to the dough.
Step 2: baking the cookies
Preheat oven to 180 degrees and layer a baking tray with baking paper.
Use a spoon or ice cream scooper to place the dough on the baking tray , as shown in the picture below.
Bake for 15 minutes, remove, let them cool and enjoy .
Ps: you can also store them in the fridge for up to 5 days – so this recipe is great for meal- preps.
Hope you enjoy them just as much as we did 💕
