Have you wondered what to do with bananas that are nearly too brown to deal with? Make banana bread! Ha, ha just kidding. That’s a classic go-to with bananas, but these 5 ingredient bananas + oat cookies are easier and just as tasty as classic banana bread.
Spend around 10 minutes whipping up a batch of these healthy, yet tasty cookies. Throw in chocolate chunks, raisins, or nuts for an extra nutritious punch.
Manitoba Milling was generous enough to send a sample of their flaxseed meal. I used it in this recipe to add even more nutritional benefits. The flaxseed goes unnoticed and adds ALA Omega 3 fatty acids. One of the healthier fats that is occasionally a point of concern for those following a plant-based diet. Sneaking flaxseed into meals is an excellent way to stay on top of nutrient intake.
