Start your morning with these healthy, sweet and chewy breakfast cookies!
2large ripe bananas or 3 small ripe bananas
1Tbsp.pure maple syrup
1 ½tsp.vanilla extract
2 ½cupsof rolled oats
¼cupchopped nuts; I used a variety of roasted lightly salted nuts
2Tbsp.whole wheat flour
¼cupmini dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash the bananas with a fork until it looks like a banana puree. Stir in the honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla extract, egg, baking powder and baking soda until well combined. Fold in the oats, nuts, chia seeds, flour and chocolate chips. The “dough” will be slightly thinner than a typical cookie dough.
With a spoon or mini ice-cream scooper, scoop cookie dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle a few more chocolate chips to your cookie and lightly flatten with your hand (the cookies will not spread too much). Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
I recommend keeping these cookies in a tubaware in the refrigerator
