Seedy Breakfast Cookies
All you need is:
1 glass (±100g) rolled oats
1 glass (±100g) oats flour (you can use high speed blender to blend your oats to a fine flour)
1 glass (±100g) finely shredded (desiccated) coconut
1 glass (±150g) seeds of your choice (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, you can mix and match whichever you find in a cupboard, also alternatively you can use nuts)
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 glass (±100g) or more unsweetened dried fruits of your choice (dates, sultanas, raisins, cranberries, goji berries or other, you can mix and match whichever you find in a cupboard) or alternatively 2-4 tbsp of coconut syrup, malases or other healthy sweetener
3 tbsp ground flaxseeds + 9 tbsp water
1 medium banana or 2 small or 1 medium avocado
6 tbsp unsweetened and unsalted nut or seed butter (I usually use peanut butter as it's the cheapest and very delicious and nutritious, it's very simple to make your own too)
Pinch of good quality salt (never table)
Here’s what you do:
Preheat the oven to 200C degrees. Line large baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix ground flax seeds with water and set aside to thicken. Little tip if you have full flaxseeds not ground, you can easily grind them in high speed blender.
Combine all dry ingredients (oats, coconut, seeds, dried fruits, bicarbonate of soda and salt) together in large bowl, mix it well.
To high speed blender (normal blender would do too) add banana / avocado, nut butter, flaxseed mix you have prepared earlier and agave syrup or alternative if using instead of dried fruits, blend until smooth.
Pour the mix to the bowl with dry ingredients and stir until all ingredients combined. I prefer to use my hands as it's pretty thick and sticky dough you get so it's simply easier to do it with hands rather than spoon. And you get to eat little dough crumbs stuck on your fingers :).
Once you have nicely mixed dough, start to divide it to around 50g balls (handful), flatten them to 0.5-1cm thick disks and one by one place them on the prepared tray. It should roughly make 15 cookies. After you done, place them to preheated oven and bake for 20 min or until it starts to brown.
Enjoy for breakfast or as a healthy snack with cup of coffee or chai!
