The Ultimate Loaded Cookie

These chewy cookies are absolutely packed with all sorts of goodies, and though some may call them breakfast cookies, they are really anytime cookies, whether on-the-go or to savour with tea. Why I love them? The base is oats. The glue is crunchy nut butter. The sweetener is a whole banana and apple butter. And the filler are seeds, cacao and dried fruits. No sugar or oil added. Gluten-free. Delicious.

  1. Preheat oven 325F degrees.
  2. Mash banana, and combine all ingredients until well mixed.
  3. Form the dough into balls with your hands and place onto a lined and greased baking sheet.  Flatten into a cookie shape with your palms. Repeat with rest of the dough. The cookies will not expand so you can place them close together. 
  4. Bake 15 minutes and allow to cool completely before removing them. Store covered for up to 1 week… if they last.
