These Banana Oatmeal Cookies are the bomb! They have no processed sugar, are gluten-free, and vegan, so you can feel good about eating them any time of day. Made with wholesome ingredients, they can be meal prepped and enjoyed for one-the-go breakfasts, snacks, or as a yummy dessert with a piece of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate on the side. Bonus: they’re made in the food processor! Ahem, minimal clean up!


Ingredients


What (your ingredients):


2 ripe bananas


6 dates, pitted (make sure they’re soft and sticky)


1 tablespoon coconut oil, not melted


Pinch of salt


1 teaspoon baking powder


1 teaspoon vanilla extract


2 cups rolled oats


Directions


How (your directions):


Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.


Add bananas, dates, coconut oil, salt, baking powder, and vanilla to a blender.  Pulse 10 times, then blend on high until smooth, about 30 seconds.


Add rolled oats and pulse 5-8 times.  You want the rolled oats slightly broken down to form a dough, but not blended so much that you end up with a paste or completely smooth dough.  Leave a little oat texture.


Spoon six cookies onto lined baking sheet.  Smooth edges, and create a flat top to the cookies using the back of your spoon.


Bake for 20 minutes.


Enjoy warm! 


Store remaining cookies in an airtight container for a week.  Reheat and serve with a drizzle of peanut butter and a side of fruit for breakfast.


Why (the science):  Oats and bananas are prebiotics, which means that feed the healthy bacteria in our gut, which improves our mood and immune system.
