Oatilicious Energy Cookies

Have you got a cookie monster in a house? I shall admit sometimes I turn into one! That's why I created this recipe.

These energy cookies are the best way to start your day! They made from wholegrain oats, Pic's peanut butter, coconut oil, and desiccated coconut for extra texture. Naturally sweetened with bananas, and, hence, free from refined sugar. They are perfect for those mornings when you are running late but want to make sure your kids still have a satisfying, healthy breakfast that will fill them up. 

Kids love these crispy on the outside whilst being soft and chewy on the inside oatilicious energy cookies. The recipe is so simple that it can be made together with older kids. 

These cookies are gluten-free (if using GF oats), egg-free and dairy-free which is important if you have a family member with the food allergies or intolerances. 

Try different variations: use chocolate chips, dried cherries or cranberries instead of raisins.

Whiz it all up using a stick blender (a fork or a potato masher will work too) until a smooth texture is obtained. I used a stick blender as it's the fastest way to get it done.

Use a tablespoon-size measuring spoon to portion out cookies on a silk-mat or a paper-lined baking tray. Wet hands will make it easier to handle the batter.

Bake on the top rack of the oven for around 10-12 minutes until golden brown around the edges. Once ready take the tray out of the oven and transfer cookies on the wired rack to cool down for around 15-20 minutes before serving.
