Let’s face it. Allergies can be really annoying when it comes to desserts. Alright, food generally but I get more upset about not getting to eat dessert.
A little while ago I ran across this super simple cookie recipe: Take mashed banana. Add oats until it’s a decent consistency. Bake at 350 until it’s done.
I like to add blueberries, but I found these cookies tend to mould if you don’t eat them quickly. Boo. They’re also very thick, and more like a breakfast cookie than anything else.
Today, however, I think I have found a winner!
Mix together until mealy:
3 cups oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
Then mix in:
1/4 cup oil (coconut works well)
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
Then stir in:
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Coat your hands with a bit of oil, and roll mixture into 1″ balls. Put on a lined cookie sheet, and press down firmly. Don’t despair: it’s VERY crumbly, but with pressing they sort of stick together- they’ll turn out.
Bake for 8-10 mins (I found 8 was more than enough on a dark cookie sheet in a convection oven!). Let them cool a bit on the sheet, then more on a rack. Enjoy!
