Banana Pumpkin Sweet Potato Oatmeal Cookies!

Super long name, but totally easy and completely worth it! With all the preparation and bake time, it took me 25 minutes to make!
Banana Pumpkin Sweet Potato Spelt Oatmeal Cookies: or BPSPSOC for not-so-short:

  • A flax egg ( 1.5 tsp chia and flax powder, or 1 teaspoon ground chia, or 2 tsp ground flax) and 2 tbsp water
  • 1 cup organic oats
  • 1 cup organic spelt flour (or any other flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 very ripe banana mashed
  • 1/4 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
Preheat oven to 375 and put parchment paper on a baking sheet.Mix the flax egg together in a separate bowl. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add vanilla, agave, honey, sweet potato and pumpkin to flax egg. Add to dry ingredients and mix until everything is evenly distributed. Put onto baking sheet and flatten with back of wet spoon.  Cook for 10-14 minutes! They might look uncooked, but they're cooked.

BEWARE: These cookies are extremely delicious, chewy and fluffy! Quite healthy too.

Mixing dry and wet together!
Getting ready for the oven!

You have to try these. They are definitely worth it!
P.S. I am fully aware that honey is not vegan. I guess I am only 99% vegan then! :)
