what you focus on you create more of
This little snack is great for your next meal prep day or for the next time you need a little something sweet. They are small, but really filling. Here is what you will need:
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
extra 1/2 banana, sliced (optional- for pressing into top)
1 1/2 C old-fashioned oats
1 t cinnamon
1 T chia seeds
2 T chopped walnuts (optional)
3 T nut butter
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment.
2. Mix all ingredients.
3. Scoop batter onto cookie sheet and press sliced banana onto the top of each cookie to flatten a bit.
4. Bake for about 15 minutes.
If you don't like banana, you could probably use sweet potato or pumpkin.
If you want a little more sweetness, try 1-2 T of honey or pure maple syrup
Any other add-ins would be fun- dried fruit, flax, other nuts, mini chocolate chips, coconut, etc.
