Those who know me know that as far as food prep goes, I’m pretty lazy. I mean, I get the job done, but I like few ingredients, no mess, and no weird soaking-overnight stuff.
Oh, and anything I make has to be completely ready (start to serve) within about 30-45 minutes max. Which brings me to the recipe I want to share with you. These cookies are fast, delicious, wholesome, and most importantly, easy. They’re also gluten-free, vegan, and did I mention delicious?
Try ‘em out! Happy Tuesday.
Gluten-Free, Vegan, Chunky Monkey Cookies
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups rolled oats
½ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
½ cup carob chips or cacao nibs
3 tbsp. chia seeds
Mix all ingredients together. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased (use coconut oil) cookie sheet and flatten slightly with your palm. Bake at 375 for about 12-14 minutes, then let set for 2 minutes on cookie sheet before removing to cooling rack.
Makes 2 dozen cookies—try not to eat all of them immediately.
