I found this recipe while looking for a good healthy dessert recipe as a reward for a job well done on my post Christmas diet. I originally found this recipe on MyRecipe.com (ill post the link below) and made some adjustments for what I liked/had in my pantry. I was a little worried when making them that they wouldn't come out to my high 'flour based' cookie standards (these are gluten free) but they are actually quiet delicious! Don't be worried - as i was - at the end when you have mix all the ingredients together and it seems kinda runny; once backed the cookies maintain their structure/hold. Did I mention that they are also under 100 Cal a pop?? ENJOY!
1/2 a Cup of Flax seed meal
1/2 a Cup of Almond Flour
1.5 Cups of Rolled Oats
1 TSP of Baking Soda
3/4 Cup of Peanut Butter
2 TBSP Butter (you can use non dairy butter substitute)
1/3 Cup of Granulated Sugar
1/3 Cup of Brown Sugar
2 Mashed Ripe Bananas
1/2 TSP Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs (lightly beaten)
1 Cup of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/4 Cup of Unsalted Roasted Sunflower Seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium size bowl add in your flax seed meal, almond flour, rolled oats and baking soda. Whisk together until fully blended.
In a large bowl mix your butter, peanut butter, granulated and brown sugars. Blend with a electronic beater on medium speed until smooth.
Add in your eggs, bananas and vanilla extract to the large bowl! Keep beating till they are incorporated.
Start to add in - bit by bit - the contents of the medium bowl followed by the chocolate chips and sunflower seeds. Fold the mixtures over one another till they are fully incorporated.
Scoop cooking dough out of bowl and place on a lined baking tray about 2 inches apart. Place in oven for 12 minutes or until edges are brown.
Remove from oven and let cool on cooling rack for a couple minutes before eating.
