These are the ultimate healthy breakfast cookie made with all vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free ingredients. Plus, they’re naturally sweetened with banana and maple syrup!


  • 1 cup creamy nut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 1/4 cup Organic Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Organic Ground Flaxseeds
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats or quick oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Sprinkle of sea salt if desired
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • Optional: chocolate chips, pumpkin seeds, anything!


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or grease well
  2. In a large bowl mix together nut butter, syrup and banana until creamy
  3. Mix in chia seeds, flaxseeds, oats, cinnamon and sea salt until batter is fully combined and thick
  4. Fold in raisins and any other mix-in’s
  5. Fill a 1/4 cup measuring spoon with batter and gently add to tray and form into a cookie (I only pressed down a little – these don’t rise much or spread)
  6. Bake in oven for 15-18 minutes or until edges are golden
  7. Allow the cookies to cool for a few then enjoy!

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Yes, you should get an air fryer!

There are a lot of questions popping out when it comes to this latest kitchen craze. Is it worth buying an air fryer? Here are some reasons why we think so: • Easy to clean • Easy to use • Safe to use • Healthier meals • Doesn’t take up much space • Faster Than Oven Cooking An air fryer is an incredibly easy way to cook just about anything. You place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp – much like deep-frying, but without the oil. You can cook anything you’d make in the oven. So, yes, DO IT!
