Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (or 160°C fan). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. In a small bowl, mix the 2 tbsp chia seeds with 6 tbsp water and pop in the fridge for 5 minutes.

3. Chop the dark chocolate into small, chip-like pieces, and put in a large mixing bowl with the oats, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon and salt.

4. Make a well in the middle of the oat mixture, and add the mashed banana, melted butter (or coconut oil), and chia seed-water mixture from the fridge. Add a dash of vanilla essence and stir well to combine.

5. Using your hands, divide the mixture into 8. First mould each eighth into a ball, then flatten to create a cookie shape. Place on the baking tray with a space between each cookie. 6. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the cookies take on a golden-brown hue.

 

Tip: if you use coconut oil instead of butter, these cookies are suitable for vegans.
