Sometimes there’s just nothing better than a cookie. But when you’ve spent two hours at the gym one morning doing the latest ‘body balance’ fat burning routine with some questionable moves and a very sweaty moustached instructor that resembles an aged Hulk Hogan, you don’t want a double chocolate chip triple butter cookie. Well you do but – you want a healthy cookie, that won’t make everything you had to go through that morning completely redundant…
These require one bowl and about 20 minutes. Gluten and dairy free (and vegan too). Bring on the oat cookies.
I make these on a regular basis. When I’ve got that craving, or when I want something portable for breakfast or a pick me up late afternoon – they’re even good as a post work out snack if you chuck some vegan protein in there too (I like rice or hemp). I got the concept after seeing this gorgeous recipe and then this two ingredient cookie recipe – I just add in whatever I fancy at the time!
I thought I’d switch it up a bit this time and try adding raspberries which I loved – that burst of fresh flavour is really good.
Other optional add ins with the two ingredients, oats and banana as your base:
Raisins (careful if low FODMAP), dairy free chocolate chips, peanut butter, dried cranberries, vegan protein powders, cacao powder, coffee, cocoa nibs, chopped nuts, coconut flakes (again use only a little if low FODMAP)
Go onn whip em up this weekend. You know you want to.
