Weekend Baking: Vegan & Gluten Free Oat Cookies with a Peanut Butter Drizzle

IMG_0780

Happy Sunday everyone! If you're anything like me, you love cookies. I could eat cookies all day everyday, and be the happiest person ever. Except, I'd probably gain lots of weight, and my skin would suffer, and it would just be a bad time. I have figured out the solution... healthy cookies! These vegan and gluten free oat cookies with a peanut butter drizzle are healthy, delicious, and contain no refined sugar! That sounds pretty good to me. pbbanana3

You will need: (makes a dozen cookies)

2 ripe bananas, mashed

2 cups of oats

4 tablespoons of peanut butter (any nut butter would work) (and 1 tbsp for the drizzle)

4 tablespoons of maple syrup

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together all of your ingredients until it forms one ball of "dough". Using a tablespoon scooper, measure out your cookies and place onto the baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Once cool, melt some peanut butter and drizzle over the top of each cookie for extra deliciousness and some prettiness.

These cookies are great to have for breakfast, with an afternoon tea, or even after a workout as they're full of protein and omega. These will become a staple for you if you're a cookie addict like me.
