Servings: 18 cookies


  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 6 tbsp water
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, approximately 1 cup mashed (or, 230 grams)
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (or, other nut butter)
  • 1/4 cup Orgain Organic Protein Powder, Vanilla Horchata
  • 1/4 cup date sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups instant gluten-free oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins, dried fruit, or dairy-free chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. 
  • Start by making “flax eggs”. In a separate small bowl, add 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed and 6 tablespoons of water. Mix together and let the mixture sit for at least 5 minutes. 
  • In a large bowl, add banana and mash using a large fork, avocado masher, or pastry cutter. Once mashed well, add the nut butter, protein powder, date sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined. 
  • To the mixture, add the cinnamon, baking powder, rolled oats, and salt. Stir until well combined. Fold in the dried fruit or chocolate chips. Fold until well incorporated. 
  • Add your dough to the prepared cookie sheet. Using a small cookie/ice cream scoop or spoon, place dough on the sheet with a small amount of space in between. 
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, until the cookies start to slightly brown. 
  • Cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Storage: Cookies can remain at room temperature for up to 3 days, in the fridge for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
