Fruity-Yum Cookies

As I bit into these cookies and was trying to explain them I said "they are so fruity & so yum"..... thus why they are called "Fruity-Yum Cookies"!
This is my idea of a perfect cookie! They are just so tasty - and full of nutritious goodness too.
Great for kids lunchboxes (and adult ones too!).
They are really easy to make and not too time-consuming. They use ingredients that are quite often considered staples.
Now that's what I call a ~Completely Hassle Free Cookie~.

~Add these to your must try list!~

To make 12 cookies you'll need:
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 2 over-ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup prunes
  • 1 Tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup currants
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup plant-milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
To get started:
Mash the bananas til smooth. 
Puree the prunes (alternatively use prune spread).
Grind the flax seeds.

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
It may look like its not 'wet' enough but just keep stirring and eventually all the ingredients will combine and hold together.
Place spoonfuls of the mixture onto a lined cookie tray & bake at 180C for 15 minutes until golden brown.
                    Allow to cool.


These cookies will keep for approx 3-4 days.
