Serves: 20
  • 1¼ cup quick cooking oats
  • ¾ cup spelt flour
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt (or sub half table salt)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ½ cup coconut sugar (or sub raw cane sugar)
  • 1 flaxseed egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped (or sub nut of choice)
  • ½ cup dried cherries (or sub dried fruit of choice)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare one large (or two small) baking sheet(s) with parchment paper. Note: I could bake all the cookies in one batch with 1 large baking sheet because mine did not spread out.
  2. In a large bowl, add oats, spelt flour, salt, and baking soda. Whisk to evenly combine.
  3. In a medium bowl mix banana, oil, and coconut sugar. Add the flaxseed egg and vanilla. Whisk to evenly combine.
  4. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and gently mix with a large spatula. Fold in walnuts and cherries.
  5. Using a medium sized sorbet scoop (2 tablespoon), scoop dough and evenly distribute on baking sheets, leaving about 3 inches of space in between each ball of dough.
  6. Bake 10-12 minutes, until edges are slightly brown. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheets to room temperature. Enjoy!
