No eggs. No flour. No baking soda. No…dough!! No bake? But they’re kind of baked – just enough to harden it into shape at least. But these are your throw-in-a-bowl-and-mix-‘em type of cookies – MY FAVOURITE. Shape them into cookies and shove them in the oven. Any impatient person/lazy bum’s favourite (i.e. me).
I found the original recipe somewhere and it started off as a simple 4-ingredient cookie. You can whittle it down to 2 ingredients actually; a banana oat cookie. I made it a 7-ingredient cookie simply by adding my share of little superfood seeds. Since these cookies are so darn simple, adding a heap of health benefits to it won’t hurt!
2 bananas (mashed)
1 1/2 cup rolled oats (uncooked)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup golden flaxseeds
1/8 cup chia seeds
1/8 cup raw hemp hearts
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1. Dude, seriously. Just mix it all in a bowl & make them cookie shapes.
2. Bake ‘em for 10 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius :)
Other Healthy Alternatives
Nuts – if you don’t have a life-threatening nut allergy like me, toast chopped hazelnuts/almonds/cashews and add them to your cookie!! You can also add a spoonful (or 2, or 3) of peanut butter to the mix and it’ll be a great binding ingredient aside from the mashed bananas.
Dried berries or fruits – swap out chocolate chips for dried cranberries or raisins for that sweetness.
Vegan – exchange dark chocolate chips for raw cacao nibs to make it completely vegan! Unless you’re already using vegan chocolate chips :P
