  • 1 cup Bananas
  • 1/4 cup Medjool Dates
  • 1 tbsp Ground Flaxseed
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup Rolled Oats



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a food processor or large mixing bowl, combine the chopped bananas, pitted (and softened) dates, ground flaxseed, and cinnamon. Blend or stir until the mixture is smooth and wet.
  • If using a food processor, transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl. Add the rolled oats to the wet ingredients, and stir until they’re thoroughly mixed.
  • Divide the batter into 8 equal portions, and place them on your prepared baking sheet, evenly spaced. Each portion will be roughly 2 heaping tablespoons.
  • The cookies will not change shape in the oven, so flatten them out and gently shape them into cookies before baking.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes, or until the cookies’ edges begin to brown slightly.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and allow it to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the slightly cooled cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Serve and enjoy!
