Special cookies for a special man!

Calling all cookies monsters! This delicious and healthy version of a childhood favourite is sure to satisfy any Cookie Monster!

Last weekend was Father’s Day, and one of the easiest ways to my dad’s heart is cookies! Combine that with peanut butter and there’s no way he can refuse!
Being a daddies girl I had to do something special, and what shows love better than baking!

I decided to take his favourites and create a delicious and tummy friendly Father’s Day treat!

1 chia egg (1tbsp ground chia + 3 Tbsp warm water)
1/4 cup sugar, unrefined
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 banana, mashed
1/2 cup peanut butter (can replace with other nut/seed butter)

Directions:
•In a large mixing bowl combine the peanut butter with the mashed banana until combined.
•Mix in vanilla, sugars, and chia egg.
•In a separate bowl combine flour blend, baking soda, oats, and salt.

•Scoop 1 Tbsp of dough at a time and roll into a ball. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and lightly press down.
