VEGAN GLUTEN FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP HAZELNUT HEAVEN COOKIES
1 1/2 cups of GF oat bran
2 tbsp of cashew butter (can use almond or hazelnut but I like the creamy sweetness that cash abutter naturally has)
2 tbsp of chia oil ( can also use coconut but I like the extra omega 3 boost of chia)
1 large organic banana
1/2 cup of vegan chocolate chips
1/2 cup sliced hazelnuts
1 tsp of cinnamon
2 flax “eggs”
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Toss it all in your mixer. Lightly grease your sheet pan with coconut oil and use a mini ice cream scooper or tsp to ration the dough. It will be a little bit stickier than normal cookie dough but should be manageable. Let the cookies cook for 5-10 minutes depending on your oven. Watch them and pull them out when the edges are becoming golden brown. ENJOY!
