Oatmeal banana chocolate chip cookies

I love this recipe because it can be used a couple different ways. You can make muffins, cookies, or bread with it.

These cookies are perfect for a quick breakfast, or afternoon snack. My toddler LOVED them, and I felt good about giving them to her. She’s been SO picky lately, and only wants pirates booty! Can you relate??

Here’s what you need..

2 cups of almond flour

4 tbsp. pure maple syrup

3-4 very ripe bananas

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

1 cup of gluten free oats

2 eggs

 

PREHEAT OVEN TO 350

  1. In a large mixing bowl, crack your eggs and whisk. Now you can add vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, maple syrup, melted coconut oil. whisk
  2. In a medium bowl, mash your bananas until they are smooth. Add them to the egg mixture and stir.
  3. Next you can add the oatmeal, almond flour and chocolate chips one by one. fold everything in with a spoon.
  4. If your making cookies, use an ice cream scooper to scoop the batter out and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, at least 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake them for about 10 minutes on the center rack of your oven. When they begin to be a golden brown on top, they are done!

 

**If your making muffins, I’d suggest baking them for about 15-20 minutes, checking the center with a knife, and when it comes out clean they’re done.

**For bread, grease the loaf pan, and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.

 

ENJOY!
