Ingredients

  • ½  cup almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon real maple syrup or honey

  • 2 cups gluten free oat flakes
  • 1/3 cup dried raisins
  • 1 tablespoon real vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch Himalayan sea salt
  • 1 pinch cinnamon powder

  1. With a fork mash the banana in a bowl.
  2. Add the almond butter, maple syrup, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix vigorously with a fork or a wooden spoon.
  3. Add the oat flakes and raisins. Keep mixing.
  4. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes at room temperature.
  5. Scoop ¼ cup of the mixture to shape each cookie with your hand. Wet your fingers a little bit if the mixture sticks too much on your hands.
