Notes

Mix in some extra nuts and seeds for a change.To ensure gluten free and dairy free – double check your oats are gluten free and your chocolate chips are dairy free. Instead of Bananas:1/2 cup applesauce + 1/2 cup nut or seed butter or 1 cup pureed sweet potato, pumpkin or squash plus additional sweetener.

I absolutely love these cookies. Helps me satisfy my sweet tooth without all the extra sugar, flour and junk in most recipes.
