GF/DF Chia-Banana-Oat Power Cookies

It’s hard to come up with a suitable name for cookies like this because you really can add any “power” ingredient you want in them.  For the recipe title, I chose the 3 ingredients that I don’t think you can really substitute—the rest is pretty flexible.  The changeability of the recipe is both a curse and a blessing.  On one hand, you can find whatever you have in your cupboard and throw it in.  On the other hand, YOU CAN LITERALLY PUT EVERYTHING FROM YOUR PANTRY IN.  So really it’s finding a balance between quantity and quality of ingredients.  The ingredients I choose are reflective of some of my pantry staples, but for sure I debated putting in walnuts, flaxseed, cashews, raisins, slivered almonds, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, etc.  Here it is!

Ingredients:  Makes 10 pretty hearty cookies
  • 2 ripe bananas (I used frozen but you can probably use room temperature)
  • ¾ cup gluten free oats
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ¼ cup almond milk (unsweetened)
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • 4 dried medjool dates, chopped
  • 3 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs
  • Almond butter (just to drizzle over)

  1. Mix chia seeds and almond milk in a bowl; let sit for about 10-15 min, until it is a gelatinous mixture
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  3. Mash or blend bananas
  4. Stir in bananas and all other ingredients (except almond butter) into chia seed jelly
  5. Scoop into balls on a baking sheet and flatten a bit
  6. Drizzle a bit of almond butter over top
  7. Bake for 20 minutes
  8. Let cool and enjoy!
