Super Simple Oat Cookies!

Val was in baking mode this week!  And she tried out a recipe for Simple Oat Cookies.  She made a few tweeks (she added chocolate!) and shared them with us 🙂

Nothing like the smell of fresh baked cookies.  These are super easy and super good.  The recipe was taken out of Deliciously Ella, by Ella Woodword.

Ingredients

3 large, ripe bananas

4 heaping tablespoons of almond butter

4 tbsp maple syrup

1 tbsp coconut oil, plus extra for greasing the pan

2 1/4 cups oats

Additions:

1/4 cup mini chocolate chips or cacao nibs

1 tsp pure vanilla

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Peel the bananas and place them in a large mixing bowl. Mash them with a fork until they are smooth.
  3. Add the almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup and the vanilla to the bananas and mix well until a sticky mix forms, at which point, stir in the oats. Mix until evenly mixed then fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Once the oats are totally covered and nicely sticky, grease a baking sheet with coconut oil and then
  5. scoop heaping tablespoons of the mixture onto the tray, using your hands to spread them out into cookie shapes. They should be nice and thin so that they become crunchy.
  6. Once all the cookies are on the sheet, place it into the oven and bake 18-20 minutes, until the cookies begin to turn golden brown.
  7. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes before enjoying.
  8. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

The cookies have a nice crispy outside and a yummy chewy inside.  Give them a try and let us know how they are!  Or if you change it up and add stuff to them, we would love to hear it.
