Seeking inspiration for healthy snacks for the kids and I, I decided to create some healthy, quick and simply oat and coconut cookies. I get a lot of requests for healthy treats so wanted to re-share this popular recipe again.
These lovelies are quick and simple oat & coconut cookies you and your kids will love!
They are also super versatile too (you can literally add anything you like to the cookies, we’ve made ours with chopped dates and dark chocolate too), we eat these for breakfast or as a healthy, tasty and filling snack in the day.
What’s more they only take 45 minutes from start to finish so are perfect for those with little time on their hands (that will be all of us then!)
Makes 12 medium sized biscuits
- 200g of gluten-free large or milled oats (depending on texture you prefer)
- a pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp of coconut oil
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 3 tbsp of maple syrup/ honey
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp milk
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 handful of raisins, dessicated coconut, pumpkin and sunflower seeds
- butter for greasing
Pour the oats into a large mixing bowl with the salt and baking powder and stir.
Melt the coconut oil, butter and maple syrup/honey in a small pan on a low heat.
Pour into the bowl of oats and add the milk, stirring through.
Add the mashed banana along with the seeds and raisins, stirring the ingredients through.
Grease a large baking tray with a little butter.
Create large balls of mixture and mould into biscuits, placing them on the tray.
Bake at 160°C for 20 minutes until golden.
Cool and eat!
Crunchy, delicious hunky chunks of goodness.
Let me know if you make them, won’t you!
