Date, Almond, Banana Cookies (Vegan, No Oil, Sweetened with Fruit)

Too many bananas? Tired of banana bread? NO PROBLEM! This recipe is incredibly, easy, tasty, and healthy! With the crunch of sliced almonds and coconut, you can't go wrong with these vegan, no oil, fruit sweetened cookies! And, better yet, you can have cookies for breakfast. ;)


1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup quick oats
2 mashed bananas (must be ripe)
1/2 cup almond butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup shredded coconut *optional*


Following these instructions exactly will provide the best results.

1. In a bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until they become smooth.

2. Stir in the old fashioned oats, quick oats, almond butter, salt, vanilla extract, chopped dates, sliced almonds, and optional coconut with the banana mixture. The dough will be fairly sticky.
3. Shape a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball like shape and place on a cookie sheet. Press down to flatten the tops of the cookies. (You will not need to worry about these cookies expanding in size).
4. Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. They should be golden when done.
5. Remove the cookies from the cookie sheet with a fork. Let the cookies cool and enjoy!
