INGREDIENTS

DRY:

WET:

  • 1 medium overripe banana
  • ¼ cup all natural agave nectar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp Sunfood Milled Flax Seed + 6 tbsp water)

ADD-INS:

TOPPING:

  • 1 medium ripe banana

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 2 medium baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare flax eggs by whisking together 2 tbsp milled flaxseed with 6 tbsp water. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to thicken.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  4. Remove the flax eggs from the refrigerator and add into the dry ingredients. Mash the overripe banana with a fork until only small chunks remain. Add the mashed banana into the bowl, alongside all the other wet ingredients. Mix until well combined.
  5. Fold in the almonds, seeds, and hemp seeds, and form dough into 20 dough balls, each using approximately 1 tbsp of the dough.
  6. Press each dough ball slightly down with a fork in a crisscross pattern, as they will not spread to flatten within the oven. Slice up the topping banana into 20 pieces, and place a piece on top of each cookie.
  7. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden.
  8. Cool on the tray before transferring to a rack to fully cool.
  9. Enjoy!
