Yield: 12 cookies

Course: ,
Theme: ,


  • 10.6 ounces (300 grams or about 2 large bananas) very ripe banana
  • 2.7 ounces (75 grams or about 1/2 cup) raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6.7 ounces (190 grams or about 2 cups) rolled oats
  • 2.3 ounces (65 grams or about 1/2 cup) dried fruit


  1. Put the oven rack in the middle position, and preheat to 300 degrees F (150 C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Put the bananas, cashews, nutritional yeast, cinnamon and salt in a food processor or blender, and puree until smooth.
  3. Measure out the rolled oats and dried fruit, and place them in a bowl. Stir in the banana mixture.
  4. Use your hands to roll out balls of dough, and flatten them onto the cookie sheet. Because they contain no leavening they will not rise, so you can put them pretty close together.
  5. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned and the cookies are chewy.
  6. These are best served warm, so if you have leftovers, just heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds.
