- Bananas – Try apple sauce
- Peanuts – Try almond butter
- Nuts – Try using tahini
- Oats – Try buckwheat flakes
You can prep these cookies in roughly 5 minutes, here’s the simple steps to follow!
First of all, mash your ripe bananas in a large mixing bowl.
Then add in your gluten-free oats, I personally prefer to use rolled oats but porridge oats will also work.
As we’re using oats it means these are flourless cookies.
Also adding in the peanut butter, either smooth or crunchy works!
Finally, mix together until it’s sticky and simply in your hands roll into ball shapes.
Place them onto a lined baking tray and press the balls down with a fork into cookie shapes.
That’s it, the prep is as simple as that, now place in your oven and allow them to bake.
