Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 large, ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup white whole wheat flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350’F and cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the banana with the back of a fork. Mix in the applesauce, peanut butter, maple syrup, flax seed and chia seed.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir well to combine, then add the oat, nuts and chocolate chips.
  4. Drop in large, rounded tablespoons on prepared baking sheet. Flatten a little using your fingers to prevent cookies from getting too puffy while baking.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.

Notes

Make these cookies gluten free by using gluten free oats

Make these cookies vegan by using vegan-friendly chocolate chips

Swap chocolate chips for chopped, unsweetened dried fruit such as apricots, raisins or mango.
