  • 3/4 cup walnuts divided
  • 1 medium ripe banana peeled
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup raisins or cranberries or a mix of both
  • 2 tablespoons pepitas


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Pulse ½ cup walnuts into small pieces in a food processor.
  • In a large bowl, mash banana with a fork. Add maple syrup, coconut oil, egg and vanilla extract. Whisk until well incorporated. Add the pureed walnuts, oats, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir to combine. Fold in half of the chocolate chips, raisins and pepitas. Fold in 2 tablespoons of the walnuts.
