Healthy breakfast cookies

I have been wanting to come up with a delicious recipe for a breakfast on the go for a while. This is a wonderful option, as it keeps and you can make it on a Sunday ahead of your work week. It makes a great snack for children at school as it is nut free. These cookies are made with fibre rich oats. They also have chia seeds which are full of Omega 3s and help regulate digestion. They are gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and as mentioned above, nut-free. 

Ingredients

Makes 8 large cookies:

1.5 cups or 192 gm of gluten-free oats

2 mashed ripe bananas

3 tablespoons of maple syrup

3 tablespoons of chocolate chips

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

½ teaspoon of vanilla extract

pinch of salt

Method

  1. Preheat the oven at 175C/350F
  2. Mash the banana in a large bowl and stir in the oats.
  3. Add the maple syrup, coconut oil, chia seeds, vanilla, and salt. Add the chocolate chips last and make sure all the ingredients are mixed well.
  4. Using a tablespoon, scoop some dough and roll it into a ball in the palm of your hands. Flatten it into a cookie sh ape on a baking tray lined with baking paper. The mixture should make about 8 large cookies.
  5. Bake at 175C/350F for 25 minutes. Let the cookies cool down before eating them.

I like to make variations on this recipe, replacing the chocolate chips with raisins and the vanilla with a teaspoon of cinnamon.
