Makes about 7 cookies
1 large banana, ripe if possible
1/4 cup peanut butter, make it a generous cup, if you know what I mean
1/4 cup flour (if you want to use GF, be aware that the cookies will be dry as dust the next day)
1/2 cup oats (can use GF if you have)
1 tea spoon chia seeds
1 tea spoon cocoa powder
1/4 cup choc chips (I used choc chips and cacao nibs together as that's what I had at hand)
Can easily be made vegan (watch those choc chips, replace with dairy free choc), gluten free (oats and flour!) and dairy free (those pesky choc chips again...) but I haven't tried all of these so can't guarantee a good result...
Mash up the banana first, this makes everything easier to mix after. Add in the peanut butter and make it mushy. Add your dry ingredients and mix well, I would suggest to use disposable gloves to roll up the cookies before placing them on a baking sheet and pushing down to make them flat. Cook in the oven for about 10 minutes on 175 degrees Celsius.
Once they are cooked and cooled just go ahead and eat them with a cup of tea or coffee (I had one with my coffee from this post) or just on their own. I need little sweet treats in my life that will make those healthier choices a bit easier on a daily basis. These cookies are the ones for now. I have a couple of other interesting recipes to get going with so if they are amazing I'll let you know.
