  • 1-2 teaspoons unpasteurized Shiro (white) miso to taste
  • 2 Tbsp  coconut oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
  • 1/2  cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal (ground from raw almonds)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C).
  2. In a large bowl combine flaxseed and water and let rest for 5 minutes to achieve “eggy” texture.
  3. Mash in the bananas until well combined, and then add peanut butter, miso, baking powder, baking soda, melted coconut oil, agave nectar, salt, vanilla and stir.
  4. Add oats, almond meal, oat flour and mix well.

5. Add the chocolate chips and walnuts and stir until well combined. Refrigerate for 5 minutes to harden.

6. Drop the batter by spoonfuls on a lightly greased baking sheet – they won’t expand much. Try to make them as uniform in size as possible to ensure even baking.
