INSTRUCTIONS

First, preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C).

Then, in a mixing bowl, mash the banana until it is pureed. Add the coconut sugar, peanut butter, vanilla, cinnamon and salt and stir to combine.

Add the quick oats, almond flour and baking powder and mix until a dough forms. Fold all add-ins if you are using.

Divide the dough into 9-10 evenly sized cookies. Roll them into balls and then flatten them with the palms of your hands. Place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, turning the tray halfway.

Let them cool on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool another 5 minutes before eating them.
