HEALTHY OAT COOKIES
RECIPE BY @NUTORIOUS_
MAKES: 12 – 15 large cookies
PREPARATION: 15 MINS
COOKING: 15 MINS
WHAT'S IN IT?
2 1/3 cups (190g) quick cook oats
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup (240g) almond butter
1/4 cup (85g) honey or maple syrup
3 ripe bananas (medium size), mashed (about 1 cup)
1/3 cup (60g) cranberries
1/3 cup (60g) of almonds
1/3 cup (60g) pepitas
1 egg, large
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:
Preheat the oven to 160C fan forced or 140C conventional and line two cookie or baking trays with baking paper.
In a small bowl cut and mash the bananas and set aside.
In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients (oats, salt, cinnamon, nuts and cranberries)
Add the remaining (“wet”) ingredients to the dry mix, including the banana, and mix until thoroughly combined.
Using approximately 3 tablespoons of mixture per cookie, place the cookies 3cm apart and slightly flatten once on baking tray.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool before eating as the cookies will not crumble once cooled.
Store in an airtight container for a week or freeze for up to three months.
