Holy Crap That's a Good Cookie!
Top 3 Reasons these Cookies Make the Grade
For breakfast, lunch, or an afternoon snack you don’t need to worry if your student eats nothing else. Three of these delicious and satisfying cookies are a full serving and high in fibre and protein.
1. Fibre fills you up and keeps things moving
Students that eat a wholesome high fiber breakfast won’t be distracted by hunger pangs before lunch. Oats, chia seeds, buckwheat and hulled hemp seeds are the high fiber ingredients in these cookies that slow down digestion.
2. Increased Concentration from Omega -3
Omega -3 is required for the brain and nervous system to develop and function normally. 3 cookies contain the recommended daily requirement of omega-3.
3. Stabilized Blood Sugar
These cookies are low on the GI Index that ranks the impact of carbs on your blood sugar levels. Slow digestion steadies the level of glucose in the bloodstream.
There isn’t an easier cookie recipe to make and bake than these two-ingredient breakfast cookies. Made with Holy Crap Plus Gluten Free Oats, they have a satisfying chewiness from the oats and a natural sweetness from the bananas and from the organic dried fruit and maple flakes in the cereal.
Two-Ingredient Gluten Free Oat Cookies
Makes 24 Cookies
- 3 bananas
- 1 bag (11 oz/320 g) Holy Crap Plus Gluten Free Oats
- Vegan chocolate for drizzling (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mash the bananas in a large bowl. Stir in the oats and let the batter sit for 5 minutes. Stir again.
- Drop tablespoonfuls of the batter onto the baking sheet and bake for 11 to 13 minutes. Turn off the oven, open the oven door and allow the cookies to cool in the oven for 20 minutes. The cookies will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for several days.
They freeze well, too.
Tip: For a special treat, melt some vegan dark chocolate in the top of a double boiler (or a stainless steel bowl inside a metal colander over a saucepan of water on low heat), allow to cool slightly, then use the tines of a fork to drizzle the melted chocolate over the cooled cookies.
