Delicious and not too sweet cookies for those who want to eat less sugar. Sugar-free and gluten-free Banana Hazelnut Oats Cookies.
2 large (really ripe) bananas, mashed
3 medium eggs
pinch of salt
7 oz. (200g) rolled oats
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1.7 oz. (50g) hazelnuts, chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet and line with baking parchment. Set aside. Chop the hazelnuts and set aside.
2. Add the bananas to a large bowl and mash with a fork. Divide the eggs, add the egg yolks to the bowl with the banana and the egg whites to a separate bowl. Whisk with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
3. Add the oats, baking powder, vanilla extract and the chopped hazelnuts to the bowl with the bananas and egg yolks and mix until well combined. Gradually add the stiff egg white and fold in carefully – you want to keep as much volume as possible. Use a cookie scoop or spoons to place small amounts of dough on the baking sheet. Flatten a bit and bake for 18-10 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool down a bit on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack and let cool down completely. Repeat with the remaining dough.
