Cookies or Granola Bars!
Baked or Raw!
The choice is yours!
These are so easy to make, and they work fabulously as raw bars that last forever in the fridge, or fresh cookies to be eaten within 2-3 days.
3 Large ripe bananas
1/2 Cup coconut oil (melted)
1 Tbsp vanilla (more or less to taste)
1 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp cinnamon (more or less to taste)
2 Cups GF oatmeal
1/2 Cup hemp seeds
1/4 Cup chia seeds
1/4 Cup coconut flakes
1/4 Cup chopped mission figs (or other dried fruits)
1/4 Cup of cacao nibs (optional)
Add coconut oil, vanilla and mix
Add baking powder and mix, then let sit a few minutes
Add the dry ingredients and use your common sense - you can add a bit more or a bit less until the batter looks like it does in the photo below - not too wet, not too dry, enough so it can form 'dough' to put on the baking tray
Mix well and let sit for 10 minutes before baking
Makes 24 cookies
Bake at 175 C / 345 F for about 15-20 minutes depending upon your oven
Makes 1 tray of cookies and 1 tray of bars
Shape the cookies smaller and thinner than those for the oven (see photo below)
Shape the bars with your hands (see photo below)
Dehydrate on non-stick sheets for 24 hours at 115 degrees
Remove the non-stick sheet and place cookies and bars upside down on the mesh tray
Dehydrate further until you reach your desired dryness
If you plan to eat them all within the next 24 hours, keep them a bit moist
If you want the to last longer, then make them very very dry (my preference)
