Healthy Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are one of my favorites of all time. This recipe came to be after noticing that both my husband and I bought too many bananas at the same time. They were getting really ripe and wanted to try something other than another banana bread. I also had too many boxes of oatmeal in my pantry so this is what I came up with. They are really, really good! FYI, they are gluten free and vegan too.

Just a suggestion... They make a great grab and go breakfast or snack and freeze well. I wrap each one individual in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag.

Wholesome Chocolate Chip Flax Cookies, Vegan & Gluten Free


These cookies are so good with healthy ingredients. I never thought my son and husband would like this one but, they did. We were taking a road trip and these were all that I brought to eat for a snack. I was so happy when they both said they loved them and asked me to make them again. Now I freeze them individually and pop them out for my sons lunch box and my husband grabs one or two whenever he wants. I think I'm going to send these to my daughter up at college with her next care package. I know she will love them. Hope you try these and enjoy them like we do.
