Skinny Banana Oat Flaxseed Cookies
Recipe makes about 15 cookies. *If vegan, be sure to use vegan chocolate chips.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 cup Bob's Red Mill gluten free rolled oats
- 1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill ground flaxseed meal
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- pinch of salt optional
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips*
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a parchment paper lined baking sheet and set aside.
Using a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork. Add in the rolled oats, flaxseed meal, shredded coconut, almonds and salt (if using). Mix together with a spoon. Add in the chocolate chips with mix together again.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop out the cookie batter and place on the baking sheet. The cookies don't spread so don't worry about the spacing too much. Press down gently with your hands if flatter tops are desired. Bake for about 18 to 20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown on the outside. Let cool for about 8 to 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
