Makes: around 12 cookies
Preparation time: 40 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten-free oats
  • 1 large banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried bananas
  • 1/3 cup pecan nuts
  • 1/3 cup almond milk or more if the mixture too dry
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil for greasing
  • 1 tsp baking soda

Directions

  1. First prepare the chia egg; mix 1 tbsp chia seeds with 3 tbsp water and allow it to set in the fridge for about 20 minutes. It will form a paste like consistency but not look very appealing, but believe me, it will help to bind the cookies together.
  2. Grease the baking tray with melted coconut oil.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius and grease the cookie sheet with the coconut oil.
  4. Meanwhile in a large bowl mix the dry ingredients. Add the chia egg, almond milk, almond butter and maple syrup and stir thoroughly.
  5. With an ice cream spoon or using your hands, shape the dough into 12 cookies and place them on a greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  6. Then bake for 10 to 12 minutes until they are lightly browned. Transfer onto a cooling rack and cool down completely. They will last for about 3 days.
