2 tbsp yogurt
¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp olive oil

Directions
Preheat oven to 170 degrees C and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together the flours, baking soda, cinnamon; flax seeds powder and chia seeds in a medium-sized bowl.
Combine the olive oil, yogurt and sugar in a bowl and mix until well combined. Add banana, and vanilla. Add flour mixture and mix until well combined.
With a rubber spatula, fold in the oats, cranberries, figs, currants, almonds (or chocolate chips) until just combined. The dough will be sticky.
Make equal sized 10 balls.
Place dough balls evenly spaced on the prepared cookie sheet. Using oiled hands slightly flatten each dough ball, as cookies will not spread as they bake. If you want to sprinkle some extra currants on top, do so.
Bake at 170 degrees C for approximately 10 minutes or until cookies are light brown and soft.

cookies on rack
Let them rest on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes, and then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.

What I like best about this invention is that it is eggless and can be made nut free, just what my grandson would love.

Optional: You can add marshmallows, peanut butter, and orange zest in any combination. The more the merrier! Just feel free to jazz up the cookie according to your/child’s personal preferences.
