Soft Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies (No flour, butter, sugar, eggs)





Recently I've been trying to eat healthier and I'm doing pretty well. The good thing is that healthy doesn't mean only salad leaves, grains and fruits. Healthy doesn't have to be boring - it can be absolutely delicious. And the best part of it is that you can have a dessert too! Yup, you won't get those chewy chocolate chip cookies or buttery blondies, but you can definitely have these huge, soft cookies. You can actually have 5 of these and you don't have to feel guilty afterwards. These are packed with nutrients and contain no flour, no butter, no eggs, no baking powder and are low in calories. These have become my favorite healthy cookies. They are soft, slightly chewy and dense. Banana, coconut and peanut butter match perfectly and create the most amazing flavor. Also, they're super easy and quick to mix up. Just let me warn you - you might not get 9 cookies. Why? Because you might eat half of the cookie dough! I never eat cookie dough because eating raw eggs scare me. But I did eat too much of this cookie dough. One moment I even thought these won't get baked because I'll finish the whole cookie dough. But in order to share this recipe with you, I had to resist! 

Soft Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies (No flour, butter, sugar, eggs)

250g (about 2 large) bananas, mashed
15g (1 tbsp) unrefined coconut oil, melted
83g (1/3 cup) homemade peanut butter
85g (1/4 cup) real honey, melted
90g (1 cup) old-fashioned oats, ground
90g (1 cup) quick-cooking oats
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp flax seeds, ground
25g (1/4 cup) dessicated coconut
40g (1/4 cup) semisweet chocolate chips

1) Preheat oven to 160C / 320F degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2) In a small large bowl, add banana, coconut oil, peanut butter and honey. Mix until combined.

3) In a small bowl, stir together oats, salt, ground flax seeds and dessicated coconut. 

4) Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until combined. Mix in half of the chocolate chips.

5) Drop 9 scoops of dough onto the parchment paper (the cookies will be large). Press the remaining chocolate chips on top of the cookies. The cookies will not spread so you can flatten them a little bit. Bake for 12-14 minutes. The less you bake them - the better!

6) Cool completely before serving.

Serves 9 large cookies.
