Ingredients

  • .5 cup maple syrup or honey
  • .25 cup nut butter optional
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • .25 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • .5 teaspoon baking soda
  • .5 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 3 cups of rolled oats divided
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips optional
  • .75 cup of nuts optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350

  2. Pulverize 2 cups of oats in the food processor to create oat flour. Add in baking soda and powder and salt and pulse to combine.

  3. Add in nuts, chips, and last cup of oats and pulse 5-10 times to break them up. 

  4. In a pan, melt butter and banana together. Smash as you go until it's pretty smooth. 

  5. Remove from heat once warm and smooth and add the sweetener and nut butter (if using). 

  6. Add in your egg and vanilla and whisk until smooth before adding to your dry mix. Stir well until totally combined.

  7. Scoop into tablespoon sized mounds into a greased or lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool about 5 minutes on the tray before removing.

Recipe Notes

  • Nuts and chocolate chips are optional, as is the nut butter. Using the nut butter will result in a denser, more rich cookie.
  • Feel free to substitute coconut oil for the butter to make this recipe dairy free. 
  • This is probably the only cookie that I will tell you tastes even better the next day after it cools. The exterior gets a bit softer and chewier and so amazing.
