Banana Oat Cookies
Ezra has been devouring the sweet potato muffins that I shared a while back so I wanted to find a new recipe to introduce since he's into finger food lately...He has to be able to eat it while keeping all his attention on Trolls ya know! Lol (that kid is obsessed with Trolls)
Anyway, I found this simple recipe and we gave it a shot today! It was seriously so simple that I made a batch before work this morning. You guys know I love simple and it doesn't get much better than this!
5 Ingredients: Oats, Honey*, Cinnamon, Banana, Melted Coconut Oil.
*I use local raw honey. This is not the same as regular store bought plain honey which is basically just sugar and high fructose corn syrup. Raw honey is not pasteurized so all the vitamins, nutrients and enzymes are intact, it has antiviral and antifungal properties, contains powerful antioxidants, boosts immune function, and helps with seasonal allergies because you're building up an immunity to the bits of local pollen that aren't being pasteurized out. That being said it is also not recommended for children under the age of 1 since it is not pasteurized.
Mash the banana with a fork then stir in the rest of the ingredients until well combined.
Drop by spoonfuls on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
Easy Peasy :) These will be moist so to keep them fresh longer store them in the fridge. The batch is small so you'll get about 10-12 cookies out of this recipe. Enjoy!
