  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 7-8 fresh dates
  • 1 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp flaxseeds
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp cinamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 3-4 tsp of maple syrup or coconut sugar 

Preheat the oven to 250°C. Dice the banana and dates, place them in a bowl. Add the coconut oil and maple syrup. Stir with a spoon. Mix the dry ingredients in another container (oats, buckwheat flour, baking powder, flaxseeds, cinnamon, nutmeg and sea salt). Combine all the ingredients until you get a compact, but soft, cookie dough. Make small cookies by using your hands. Place them on a tray covered with baking paper. Bake for 15-16 minutes, (keep in mind that they get harder when they cool).

I love to enjoy this cookies with a glass of cold nut milk and cinnamon, but a cup of tea is perfect if you are in the mood for something warm.
