- 2 mashed overripe bananas
- 2 tablespoons sunflower seed butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup packed shredded apple (I used Gala)
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup oat flour
- 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons shredded coconut (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, mash together your bananas, sunflower seed butter and vanilla.
Add your shredded apple, oatmeal, oat flour, hemp seeds, chia seeds and shredded coconut. Mix all the ingredient together.
Form 12 cookies and place them on the prepared cookie sheet. They don't spread, so don't worry about putting them close together.
Bake for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days or in the fridge or freezer.
To make the oat flour, I simply blended rolled oats in my blender for a few seconds.
If preferred, feel free to use peanut butter or almond butter instead of sunflower seed butter.
