Sometimes breakfast can seriously be a rushed business. These cookies are just perfect for those “no-time-for-brekfast” kind of mornings. They are packed with nourishing ingredients and they are just perfect for breakfast on the go. I like to have a couple before I head to the gym or they also great as an afternoon snack. If you want to keep them completely gluten free just use certified gluten free oats.
1/2 cup of Blueberries ( I have used fresh but it should work with frozen blueberries as well)
1 tbsp of Natvia Sweetener
1 cup of oat flour
1/2 cup Ground almonds
1 tsp of Baking powder
3 tbsp of Almond butter (the runnier the better)
3 tbsp of Coconut oil
1/2 cup of Maple syrup
1 tsp of Vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
1-Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius.
2-Place the oats into a food processor and pulse for few seconds. You don’t want to turn them completely into flour, but still keeping a chunky texture.
3-Transfer them to a large bowl and add the ground flour, baking powder, salt and Natvia Sweetener.
4-Mix everything together.
5-Add in the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and almond butter. Mix again until you have sticky dough.
6-As gently as you can fold in the blueberries.
7-As the dough is quite wet and sticky I have used an ice-cream scooper to shape the cookies. Not only is less messy but it also helps you to have cookies even in size and shape, but if you don’t have one feel free to use you hands. Pick up about a small golf ball of mixture, and place it on a baking tray covered with parchment paper and pat it down slightly to a cookie shape.
8-Bake the cookies in the oven for 15-18 minutes until they start to go golden brown around the edges.
9-Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool down completely before digging in!
