Equipment

  • Baking sheet
  • 3 tablespoon scoop

Ingredients

  • 1.5 tablespoons chia seeds
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 2 cups whole rolled oats
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • cup coarsely chopped nuts optional
  • ½ cup additional mix-ins optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, combine the chia seeds and almond milk and set aside to thicken for 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the oats, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Then, add the almond butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup and stir well to incorporate. Stir in the chia seed mixture.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients and fold in just until combined. Fold in the nuts and any additional mix-ins.
  • Using a large cookie scoop, scoop batter for each cookie onto the baking sheet. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until browned around the edges. Cool on the pan for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • These cookies are pretty delicate, so allow them to cool completely before digging in. I know it's hard!
