Rhubarb is usually used in pies or other desserts , but if you’d like a healthier rhubarb recipe – you’re in the right spot.
These “cookies” are a quick, easy, healthy breakfast when you don’t have time for or feel like a bowl of oatmeal. They’re also great paired with a smoothie or as an afternoon snack.
Make a double batch and freeze them individually so you always have them ready to go.
makes about 10 cookies
Heat the oven to 350 and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, stir the chopped rhubarb with the maple syrup and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine the mashed bananas, oats, seeds and berries. Stir together until the mixture is wet and lightly mash down the raspberries – not totally mashed but enough that they easily incorporate into the ‘dough’.
Stir in the rhubarb and maple syrup mixture until everything is well combined.
Using damp hands, form the dough into 2 inch round balls and lightly flatten them to a “cookie” shape. They will not change shape as they bake so make them the size and shape you want. Sprinkle with cinnamon (as much as you like).
Bake for 20 minutes or until they are lightly firm but still soft in the middle. Let cool for 10 minutes.
They’ll keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days or individually wrapped tightly in the freezer for a month.
