Directions

Click:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Add the banana to a large bowl and mash well.
  3. Then add in the almond flour, applesauce, flaxseeds, almond butter, chia seeds, vanilla, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix thoroughly until well combined.
  4. Then stir in the oats and pumpkin seeds before.
  5. Finally, gently fold in the blueberries and chocolate.
  6. Using your hands, form small balls out of the dough and place them on a parchment-lined baking tray. Gently press down each ball to create a cookie shape, as these cookies don't spread on their own.
  7. Bake in the centre rack of the oven for 13 - 15 minutes, or until lightly golden.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool for 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

Notes

  • * Use store-bought almond flour, or make it yourself by adding raw almonds to a food processor and blending until you achieve a flour-like consistency.

Storage

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days, or store in the freezer for up to 2 months to enjoy as a grab-and-go breakfast or snack!
  • Either reheat to enjoy immediately or allow to defrost at room temperature if enjoying as a snack later in the day.

I’ve made these twice now and love them! I pack them in my lunches or eat them for breakfast with coffee and some fruit when I’m in a rush. I’m also glad they don’t have any added sugars, they’re hearty and filling on their own without them :))


Natasha - Sept. 1, 2021, 7:20 p.m.

Wow! These were amazing! I'm a grad student, so quick healthy snacks such as these are my go-to. I gave some to my housemates, and they loved them, even more when they found out the cookies had no added sugar! Will definitely be making these a regular in the house.

PUL Team - Sept. 2, 2021, 3:38 a.m.

Aw we're so glad to hear, Natasha! All the best with your studies 🤗🌻

I LOVE these but have since been tested and found out I have an almond allergy :( What swap do you think would work for the almond flour and butter?

PUL Team - Aug. 17, 2021, 5:30 a.m.

Hey Adela! So sorry to hear about the recent allergy. We can't say for certain as we haven't had a chance to test it out, but other PUL members have experimented with oat flour or all-purpose in place of almond flour in other recipes. For the almond butter, another nut or seed butter, such as peanut, sunflower seed, or hazelnut butter would work as a substitute.

I'm about to go make 30 of these (writing this to hold myself accountable) and I will check back once I've tried them!

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 3:40 a.m.

Mmm let us know how it goes, Ashby!


Riley - July 10, 2021, 4:48 p.m.

Best. Cookies. Def double batch ;)


Rachel - July 10, 2021, 3:28 a.m.

I make these all the time and love them!! So easy and delicious!


Ksenia - July 9, 2021, 6:45 a.m.

I love this recipe, these are the only cookies I make! :)


Cass - June 20, 2021, 11:37 p.m.

If you are frezzing them do you bake them first or freeze the batter, then bake? Thank you 😊

PUL Team - June 21, 2021, 6:59 a.m.

Hi Cass, we personally enjoy freezing these cookies after baking them. We've found that allowing them to cool completely after baking and individually wrapping them works great for an on-the-go option. You could likely freeze the batter and bake the cookies later if desired. Let us know how it goes if you give freezing the batter a try 😊


Cris S - June 5, 2021, 5:20 p.m.

I think I prefer the apple variant, but these are a very welcome alternative for breakfast muffins!

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 5:22 p.m.

Oh sorry, I missplaced this comment!

PUL Team - June 5, 2021, 11:36 p.m.

Thank you for taking the time to share this, Cris! Much appreciated ✨🌻


Miriam N - April 29, 2021, 7:49 p.m.

These are my absolute favourite cookies of yours. I've been making them since you guys first posted it - at least a couple years now I think? I've even had friends ask for the recipe, they loved it! Such healthy ingredients too :)

PUL Team - May 1, 2021, 8:03 p.m.

We appreciate this so much, Miriam, and are so happy you and your friends have been enjoying the cookies for so long!

These cookies are delicious and moist, of which the latter is attributed to banana and apple sauce. It’s amazing that they remain intact despite that the frozen berries thaw during baking. I used bilberries instead of American blueberries, as the former are smaller yet more filled with flavour and colour. Consequently, the batter became a bit difficult to handle whilst shaping the cookies. A trade off that was well-rewarded😋

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 11:04 p.m.

Thank you for sharing, Louise! Using damp hands may help with forming the cookies. We're glad it was worth it though 😃

Thank you for the tip!!
