Banana Oat Cookies With Almonds and Chocolate

Tips to make super easy and healthy Banana Oat Cookies:

  • If you don’t have oat flour, you can blend the oats in a high-speed blender or food processor. Use only whole grain oats, they are the healthiest version of oats.
  • You can use any other kind of nuts of your choice, for example, mixed nuts or walnuts, etc.
  • I didn’t add extra sweetener to the cookies because I have enough sweetness from the banana and chocolate pieces, but if you want the cookies to be sweeter you can add honey, coconut sugar, or any other healthy sweetener. If you use a liquid sweetener, then probably you may still need to add flour or oats, if the dough got too moist.
  • You can add different seeds and dried fruit, but it can make the cookies too nutritious.
