Banana date caramel oatmeal cookies:

I love oatmeal cookies and these banana date caramel oatmeal cookies are my new favorite. And they are super easy to prepare!

Ingredients you will need:

  1. Sprouted gluten-free oats
  2. Date caramel
  3. Ripe banana
  4. Egg
  5. Coconut oil
  6. Vanilla extract
  7. Baking soda
  8. Chocolate gems
  9. flaky salt

How to prepare dough:

I first prepare a batch of my date caramel and set aside. Next, I add my ripe banana to a bowl and with a fork I smash up the banana. And then I add the date caramel, egg, coconut oil, vanilla extract to bowl, and mix. Then I add in the dry ingredients, mix, and fold in the chocolate gems. But feel free to use whatever chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bar you have on hand. And refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes.

Baking:

With an ice cream scoop (I have a tbsp size) I scoop out batter and add to a lined baking dish. And I gently press down with palm and bake 350 F for 8-10 minutes. And once done baking, I sprinkle some flaky salt on top, and let the cookies sit on baking dish for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

How to store:

I like to store mine in my refrigerator in an airtight container. But they also freeze well, so if you don’t plan on eating the whole batch, just stick them in the freezer in an airtight container.
