Servings 20 cookies


  • 1 banana mashed
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F, and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed banana, tahini, coconut sugar, water, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir until smooth.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients - EXCEPT the chocolate chips - and mix until well combined.
  • Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the dough, and place it on the baking tray. Use wet fingers to press the cookies roughly into cookie shapes, and press the chocolate chips on the tops (this ensures an even amount of chocolate on each cookie). There should be at least an inch between each cookie, as they will grow and spread out while baking.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until they are puffy, golden, and are starting to brown underneath.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack, and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before eating.
