You guys, these are seriously some of the best cookies I've ever had. They are so moist and flavorful and healthy! Whole grains, no added fat, vegan, chocolate. I'm not gonna lie, we ate them for breakfast.
This makes about 3 dozen cookies.
2 cups regular oats
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 1/2 cups mashed very ripe banana (about 3 large bananas)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 cup peanut or almond butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup dried goji berries
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, combine banana, syrup, nut butter and vanilla. Add goji berries and stir to combine.
In a separate bowl, stir together oats, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
Add half the dry ingredients to the wet and stir to combine. Add remaining dry ingredients and stir until completely incorporated. Add chocolate chips and stir again.
Using a spoon, scoop onto a cookie sheet, leaving about an inch between each cookie.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Let them cool on the cookie sheet about 5 minutes before placing on a cooling rack.
Don't feel guilty if these don't make it past the end of the day. I'm almost certain they won't around here!
|and a little sunshine for your day!|
