Prep time: 10 minutes plus 20 minute resting time
Baking time: 20 minutes
3 large ripe bananas (or 3.5 medium bananas)
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup chopped dates
1/3 cup unflavoured vegetable oil such as grapeseed oil. I find olive oil does change the taste of the cookie
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
**optional – add handful of semi sweet chocolate chips for a little chocolate flavouring.
Preheat oven to 350F
Mash bananas, add chopped dates, oatmeal, vanilla and oil. Stir to mix well.
Let sit at room temp for 20 minutes.
Drop onto cookie sheet – ungreased
Bake until lightly brown. About 20 minutes.
Allow to cool on a cooling rack and enjoy!
Note: These cookies freeze very well for a grab and go breakfast or snack idea. Will defrost naturally in about 10-15 minutes or you can defrost in the microwave to save time.
