Banana Blueberry Oat Cookies

Health Coach Favorite Recipe

Since school has started for some and just around the corner for others, try my new recipe for Banana Blueberry Oat Cookies. These cookies are soft, bursting with fresh blueberries, and rich in nutrients. They are great as a side with some protein for breakfast, lunch or afternoon snack. Snag some fresh blueberries before the season is over!

Banana Blueberry Oat Cookies

Servings = 14 cookies:

Ingredients

- ½ C Coconut Oil (softened)

- ½ C Brown Sugar

- 2 Ripe Bananas

- 1 ½ C Gluten Free All Purpose Flour

- ½ C Rolled Oats

- 1 Tsp Vanilla

- ¼ Tsp Baking Soda

- ½ Tsp Salt

-1 C Fresh Blueberries (frozen works as well)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixer, cream together the coconut oil, bananas, and brown sugar until smooth and incorporated - about 2 minutes on medium speed.  Add flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and vanilla on low speed until combined.  Gently fold in blueberries with a wooden spoon until evenly distributed in the batter.  With a spoon, form 2 inch balls of dough and place on a lined baking sheet.  Slightly flatten the top with your hand.  Bake for 12-14 minutes.  Take out when the edges are turning golden brown and finishing cooling on a wire rack.  Best served warm.  Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
