Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Cookies

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 cups old fashion gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp salted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup Monkfruit Sweetener (sugar-free alternative)
  • 1 large egg
  • ⅓ cup mashed banana, which is a almost one whole banana
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup sugar-free chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugars. I used an old-fashioned egg-beater but if you’re lucky enough to have an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed.
  4. Add the egg, followed by the mashed banana and vanilla extract.
  5. Working by hand, stir in the flour mixture and the oats until just combined.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Drop heaping spoonfuls onto baking sheets, flattening each cookie slightly. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until cookies become light brown at the edges. Do not overbake these cookies!
  8. Let cool on baking sheet for 3 or 4 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy!
