Double Chocolate Oat Cookies

After 4 months of continuously saying I was going to get back in the kitchen... I actually did! Before I head off to uni, I have a little bit more time on my hands, so it meant one thing right?

I guess I have changed when it comes to being in the kitchen. I will be the first to admit I have become super lazy, I eat the same meals 24/7 and use one pan if I can. Yep, I just haven't wanted to slave away in the kitchen and lost the joy out of creating new recipes. Mainly because I have been so damn busy, that's life right?

So I thought, what would I want to make myself these days? Something which would suit the majority of the population who aren't full time food bloggers creating recipes all day long with about 100 ingredients. First things I could think of.... Cookies!!! Who doesn't love cookies? These cookies I can safety say came from a place of laziness. Taking me just 30 minutes to make. Bonus.

Chocolate. In fact double chocolate. That's all I have to say on the matter. Double chocolate cookies you can whip up 30 minutes.

Made with oats, sweet banana, runny peanut butter, indulgent cacao powder and a few other ingredients meaning no animals were harmed in these glorious cookies. Double bonus.

Oh and the chocolate obviously melts when they're freshly baked. Complete gooey, chocolate goodness. If you are not convinced to make these already, are you mad?

1 & 1/2 cup oats
2 over ripe bananas
1 flax egg (1 tsbp. ground flax with 3 tbsp. water)
2 heaped tbsp. peanut butter
2 tbsp. cacao powder
1 tsp maca powder (optional)
1/4 tsp salt
1 scoop pea protein (optional)
2 tbsp. almond milk
2 pieces dark chocolate

Pre heat the oven to 180c.

In a small bowl mix together 1 tbsp. ground flaxseed and 3 tbsp. water and place this to one side.

In a blender blitz your oats to a flour consistency.

In a large mixing bowl place your two bananas and mash with a fork. Add all your other ingredients to the bowl except the almond milk and chocolate. Mix everything together and then slowly add in your almond milk until there is a slightly sticky cookie dough. You don't want it to wet here so add a tiny bit at a time.

Once mixed together take a heaped tbsp. of the dough and space out on a lined baking tray. The mix should make 7 to 8 cookies. Place in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Take out and leave to cool.

The cookies should keep in a air tight container for 3 to 4 days.
