Banana Oatmeal Cookies
adapted from Live Well 360 (which may not exist anymore)
yield: 2 1/2 dozen
For a nut-free version, I bet oat flour (oats ground in a food processor) would work in place of the almond meal.
3 large bananas
2t vanilla extract
1/4c melted coconut oil
2c rolled oats (I used Extra Thick, use GF if desired)
2/3c almond meal
1/2t sea salt
1c mini cinnamon chips
Preheat the oven to 350deg.
In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Add in vanilla and coconut oil and whisk well to combine. In another bowl, mix together oats, almond meal, cinnamon sea salt and cinnamon chips. Add to the banana mixture and stir until combined. Using a small cookie scoop (or a 1T measure), drop cookies onto a parchment-lined baking sheet ~1" apart. Press down gently with your fingers to get a flatter cookie (they won't spread while baking). Bake for 12-15min, until they're not too soft to the touch and the cookies don't look wet anymore. Let cookies cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container.
