Vegan, Gluten-free Oats Banana Cookies

I try to eat clean… Well, sometimes. I have an extreme sweet tooth and I always want to snack something sweet after the meal. It’s only fair to start eating clean before I gain those extra pounds from my so called snacking. I tried this recipe a few times before I posted it here. The first look of this recipe was meh! OKAY..not bad. But after I added the cinnamon and cardamom it tasted like heaven.

This recipe is free of added sugar. The sweet deliciousness comes from chocolate chips  or raisins (both taste amazing). I’m not gonna lie, for me, chocolate chip and banana together is like the perfect marriage 🙂

This recipe is very easy and can be whipped up even before your oven is preheated.
