Meg’s Protein Packed Quinoa Breakfast Bake (which is epic, btw) inspired me this week to share literally the world’s easiest (and healthy) cookies ever! These bad boys are so very, very simple and a great, guilt free way to use up you old brown bananas.
Our Pinterest love is well documented and about 18 months ago I saw a recipe for these sugar free, healthy chewy banana oat biscuits (unfortunately I can’t remember who it was so I can’t credit them… sorry). Anyway, I made them straight away and have continued to do so at every given opportunity. I even taught my mum how to make them and she is now loving them! Now, I am finally blogging about them to pass on this little gem of a recipe.
So, what do you need…
1 old ‘going brown’ banana
65g of quick cooking porridge oats. (Thats it!)
Or course if you have 2 old bananas then you need 130g of porridge oats and so on and so on. You can even make these gluten free by using gluten free oats. Now for the fun part, your optional add ins depending on what you fancy / have lying around! These are what I would recommend.
I would recommend you only need a small handful of these extras, which is about 10-20g, or a tablespoon per banana. I do have to say Sainsburys offers a wonderful selection of all of these things in their baking section. It’s defo worth a look.
If you did want to add a little sugar (as they aren’t that sweet) do add a tablespoon of either maple syrup or honey. Both of these work really well!
This time I opted for dark chocolate chip and glace ginger – I am having a really obsession with these flavours at the moment! Anyway, let crack on with the recipe.
1. Pre-heat your oven to about 180 fan. Line a baking tray with baking paper and get your ingredients ready
2. Mash up your banana(s) in a bowl
3. Add the porridge oats and mix well
4. Add your extras, if you’re having them
5. Place tablespoon size blobs on the baking paper
6. Bake for 15-20 minutes
