I made these cookies last night and so far have had them as a snack, a midnight treat and breakfast. They are pretty versatile.. and delicious. They are gluten and dairy free and a real energy pick me up any time of day. See more recipes at —sabrina

What You'll Need
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 3/4 of one banana cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup jumbo oats
  • 1/3 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 pinch maldon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tablespoons rice bran oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup oat milk
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F
  2. Combine all dry ingredients into a bowl and then mix in wet ingredients one at a time.
  3. Let the mixture sit for about 5-10 minutes (while the oven is heating) so that the oats and quinoa flakes soak up the oat milk.
  4. Oil a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of rice bran oil.
  5. Cook for approximately 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. The bottom of the cookies should be golden and caramelized.

Thank you SO much for this recipe! It's really lovely and incredibly flexible. I make a batch once a week - sometimes I add sunflower seeds and chocolate chips. Sometimes I substitute melted butter for the rice bran oil.
