Description

Easy banana protein cookies packed with dark chocolate and walnuts. Bake them in advance for portable protein rich snack for all your adventures!


Ingredients

  • 1 flax egg (1 TBSP golden flaxseed meal + 3 TBSP filtered water)
  • 2 large or 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder (I used Tone It Up)
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup superfine almond meal
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Grandy Pantry Organic Walnuts Halves & Pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium to large bowl, smash bananas with a fork. Add in the protein powder, oats, almond meal, and cinnamon and stir to combine everything. The mixture should be thick, sticky, and moist.
  3. Fold in the dark chocolate chips and walnuts. 
  4. With a cookie scoop, portion out heaping tablespoons of cookie dough and place on the baking sheet. Flatten the dough slightly with your hands.
  5. Bake the cookies for 12-13 minutes, or until the bottom is golden brown and the top is set. 
  6. Allow the cookies to cool for 10 minutes before serving. 
  7. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days and freeze for long term storage.
