C is for Cookie

Some FJAers asked for this cookie recipe, so here it is! I whipped these up for our meeting last night, they are super easy to make, vegan, not to sweet, healthy, and light tasting.

Pumpkin Pie Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 Flax ‘egg’  (2 tsp. ground flaxseed + 2 tablespoons water)
  • 1 cup regular oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup agave (you could also use maple syrup)
  • 1 small banana, chopped
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin 

I might use 1/4 cup walnuts next time for a bit more crunch and maybe a tad more cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice might be nice in these also!

    Directions: Preheat the oven to 375F. Mix flax egg in a small bowl and set aside. Mix dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl and set aside. Mix wet ingredients in a small to medium sized bowl and then add flax or chia egg. Stir. Pour wet mixture into dry ingredients. Stir well and shape cookies onto a pan. Makes 12 large cookies. Cook for 13 minutes at 375F.
