Number of Servings: 12


    2 large ripe bananas, peeled (230 grams banana without peel)
    1/2 cup packed pitted Medjool dates (125 grams pitted dates)*
    1/4 cup virgin coconut oil
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
    2 cups gluten-free rolled oats, divided
    3-4 tablespoons non-dairy chocolate chips (or chopped dark chocolate)


Preheat oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add the peeled bananas, pitted dates, coconut oil, and vanilla into a food processor. Process until smooth. I let it run for a minute or so.
Add in the cinnamon, baking powder, and salt and process again until combined.
Add in 1.5 cups of the rolled oats and process for only 4-5 seconds, just long enough to roughly chop the oats.
Remove processor from the base and then remove the blade and set aside. Carefully stir in the remaining 1/2 cup rolled oats and the chocolate chips.
Spoon a large portion of dough (about 3-4 tablespoons or so for each) onto the parchment. Do not press down on the dough to flatten - simply leave it in a mound on the baking sheet.
Bake cookies for 10 minutes, rotate the pan, and bake for another 7-9 minutes until golden brown on the bottom.
Immediately transfer the baking sheet onto a cooling rack for 10 minutes. Then lift off muffins and place on the rack to cool completely.

Note: Make sure you use very soft Medjool dates. If you are using firm dates, be sure to soak them in water until softened before proceeding with recipe.
