Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 12 cookies
- 1 egg or sub 1/4 cup applesauce or a flax egg for egg-free
- 1/2 cup almond butter or nut butter of choice
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/3 cup gluten-free 1:1 baking flour
- 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt less if you are using salted almond butter
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup dried tart cherries or dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone liner or parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until smooth. Add the oats and cider vinegar and mix together. Let sit for 10 minutes for the oats to soften.
In the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a large bowl with a hand mixer), add the egg, almond butter, coconut oil and maple syrup. Mix until evenly combined.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated. Mix in the banana/oat mixture.
Stir in the oats, pecans, dried cherries, and chocolate chips. Scoop 3 tablespoon sized mounds onto a baking sheet. Spread to flatten slightly before baking. Bake for 13-15 minutes until golden and set. Cool on the rack for a few minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
Cookies can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days or frozen for a few weeks. Enjoy!
MAKE IT EGG-FREE: Substitute 1/4 cup applesauce or a flax egg for the egg.
HOW TO STORE: These cookies can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days, or frozen for a few weeks.
Any nut butter will work in this recipe. My favorites are almond butter or peanut butter!
