These 4-ingredient cacao cookies are a Fully Rooted favorite. This recipe can literally be prepped in minutes. Enjoy these healthy, snackable cookies that are not only delightful, they’re a healthier cookie alternative.
Here’s what you need:
1 cup gluten free oats (we used Bob’s Red Mill)
2 organic bananas, mashed
2 Tbsp. nut butter, unsweetened
1/4 cup of Hu Chocolate Gems (made with coconut sugar) or substitute for cacao nibs for a sugar-free option
Pre-heat oven to 400. Use a bowl to finely mash up banana using a fork, mix in oats, peanut butter and gently fold in chocolate gems (or cacao nibs). If mix feels too watery and less like a cookie-dough consistency, sprinkle in more oats. Once mixed, roll into cookie balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until bottom is golden brown.
Pro Tip: Use silpat on your cookie tray for an even quicker cleanup!
Make it Oatmeal Raisin: Substitute chocolate chips for raisins and sprinkle in 1 tsp. of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract for quick oatmeal raisin cookies.
