Hi There!
So I've been playing with the cookie recipe and have made a few changes, good ones I think! I've been eating 2 of these for breakfast w/coffee (decaf, of course) and they are quite satisfying! Give them a try and let me know what you think!

Maple-Oat-Banana Breakfast Cookies ("Oaties")

A yummy high protein breakfast or snack, great for peeps on the go!

2 tsp. ground flaxseed

2 tablespoons water

1 cup regular oats

1 cup garbanzo bean flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ cup raisins (optional)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 banana, mashed

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 375.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the flax seeds with the water and set aside until thickened.

Mix the oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a medium mixing bowl.

Add the maple syrup, vanilla, mashed banana, and lemon juice to the flax/water mixture and combine well.

Pour into the dry mixture and stir well but don't over-mix.

Drop by heaping tablespoons onto a baking sheet lined with a silicon mat or parchment paper and flatten each cookie slightly with a fork.

Bake for 8-12 minutes or until bottoms and sides are lightly brown. Cool for a few minutes on a wire rack before serving.


Yield: 18 cookies
