Banana Walnut Cookies. [clean & simple]

20130603-121719.jpg

It’s a rainy, humid Monday morning and I refuse to let it bring me down.

So we’re making banana walnut cookies…!

I found this recipe on the detoxinista. Great healthy recipes, check her out!

These cookies are soft and gooey, which is exactly how I like them. Simple, wholesome and healthy ingredients make for a great snack anytime of day (and kid approved!).

Ingredients:

1/2 c almond butter
3 T flax seed meal
1/2 c mashed very ripe banana
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t cinnamon
1/4 c chopped walnuts
Sweetener is optional, I added 1 T maple syrup

Mix all ingredients well.
Let your batter sit for 10 minutes so that the flax seed meal gels with the other ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350.
Scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet or silpat.
Bake for 11-14 minutes.
Let cookies cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet.
Enjoy!

Makes 10-16 cookies.
