BANANA OATMEAL COOKIES

Category, DifficultyBeginner

A healthy grab & go breakfast or tasty snack.

Yields18 Servings
Prep Time10 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time25 mins
BASIC INGREDIENTS:
 3 medium ripe bananas
 2 cups rolled oats
SOME OPTIONAL EXTRAS: for your individual taste
 ¼ cup white chocolate chips
 ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
 1 tbsp peanut butter
 1 tbsp honey
 1 tsp cinnamon
 1 tsp vanilla essence
 1 tbsp hemp seeds
 ¼ cup dried cranberries
 ¼ cup coarsely chopped almonds
 ¼ cup desiccated coconut
METHOD:
1

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line two rectangular baking trays with baking paper.

2

Using the back of a fork or a potato masher, mash the bananas in a medium bowl until they are broken down.

3

Add in the rolled oats and gently stir until all of the oats and bananas are mixed together and look like a thick cookie batter.

4

Now add in as many of your chosen extras as you like. Blend well with the fork to combine.

I chose both dark and white chocolate chips, peanut butter, honey, and cinnamon. Be creative - this recipe works really well with so many optional extras and is not limited to my suggestions.

5

Scoop one heaped tablespoon of the dough into your hands and free form into a cookie. Place on a baking tray and continue until you have ~18 cookies.
The cookies will not change shape when cooking and will come out the same size as they went into the oven.

6

Cook for 15-20 minutes or until set through and lightly golden.

7

Cool fully and enjoy!
