After a great day at Stylist Live yesterday where I saw some inspirational ladies talking about health and wellbeing I was feeling extra motivated so decided to make some healthy cookies as a little weekend treat.
These oat, banana cookies with berry chia jam were inspired by a My New Routes recipe – yummy raspberry thumbprint cookies. For my version I’ve added banana for extra natural sweetness and desiccated coconut as I love the combination of oats, banana and coconut.
Have you made chia jam before? If you haven’t your missing out. Here’s a few reasons why is much healthier that shop bought jam; its naturally thickened by the chia seeds, it has dramatically less sugar (just 1 tbsp of maple syrup rather then loads of white sugar) uses fresh raw fruit and and some great protein from the chia seeds. Happy days.
These little treats are vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free. Brilliant on their own or delish with some vegan icecream (so my hubby says!).
