Anything that involves 3 ingredients and can be rustled up in minutes gets the thumbs up here.
These delicious banana oatmeal cookies are a hit with the kids and I’ve just eaten two for breakfast on the run! Slow-releasing, these healthy cookies are quick, versatile and the whole family will gobble them up. I literally can’t stop eating them!
All you need is:
- 2 cups of gluten-free oats (I use half finely milled, half large old-fashioned oats)
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/3 cup melted butter/dairy-free alternative
You can also add raisins, chocolate chips, desiccated coconut, apricots, dates and some honey if you like your cookies extra sweet. I’m going to add cranberries at Christmas. You can of course make them vegan too if you use a dairy-free spread alternative.
Stir the oats into the mashed banana and pour the butter in. Mix together. Add a little water if the mixture is too dry. Roll into balls and flatten.
Bake at 190/Gas mark 5 on a greased tray for 15-20 mins.
Let me know if you try them in the comments and tweet me a picture @Honestmum as I always love to see when you bake or cook my recipes!
