Gut-Friendly. Vegan. Raw. Healthy. Gluten-Free. Refined Sugar-Free. Simple & delicious snack. Perfect ‘yummy’ dessert
- 2 cups of gluten free oats
- 1 cup of cashew butter
- 1.5 cups of mashed bananas
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of unsweetened vanilla extract
- dark chocolate nuggets for topping (optional)
- 1.5 scoop of plant-based protein (optional)
How to make:
- Place parchment paper in an oven tray and set aside. This recipe is raw, so the baking tray does not go into the oven.
- On a plate, mash the bananas. The quantity of bananas must be equivalent to a cup and a half (already mashed).
- In a small bowl, place the “banana porridge” and add the cashew butter and vanilla extract sugar-free (I use liquid). Combine all the ingredients well.
- Add the dry food to the previously formed paste – oats gf and cinnamon (and plant-based protein if you choose to add protein). I didn’t add protein to this recipe.
- Combine all the ingredients until a sticky mixture so that you can create generously sized flat balls. If the mixture is too dry, add a little water or vegetable milk (oat milk, for example).
- Shape the cookies (as you like) and place them on top of the parchment paper. I like making little balls first and then flattening them with the palms of my hands to make them wafer-shaped (a mindfulness activity that brings me so much joy).
- Cover the cookies with dark chocolate chips (or even coconut flakes)
- Keep them in a glass container and reserve them in the fridge
PS. Girl, you can eat one cookie or two right away, but be careful… They are really really good! Enjoy! Make sure to tag me (@sarabrites) in your remakes!
PSS. “Do you know what’s healthier than a perfectly ‘clean diet’? NOT WORRYING ABOUT A PERFECTLY “CLEAN” DIET! There is nothing worse & exhausting than obsessive thoughts about eating, about trying to be perfect and turning your life around this.” My tips for today:
1) There’s no such thing as perfect…
2) Food is not about rules. YES, it’s important to nourish your body (temple) with whole and simple foods (plant-based centered), but STOP with the terms “good”, “bad”, “clean”
3) Food is energy! Keeps you ALIVE. Food (real whole food) doesn’t make you gain weight. All my clients know about this! Even on a fat loss journey, you CAN EAT and you can play with a loooot of cookies (it’s a whole food healthy version of cookies).
