Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup oat flakes (possibly wholemeal)
  • 1/4 cup blueberries (optional, for an added touch of sweetness)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional, for a little crunch)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven and prepare the baking tray: Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper or a light layer of oil.
  2. Mash bananas: In a large bowl, mash ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Make sure there are no large pieces of banana left.
  3. Add the dry ingredients: Add the oats, raisins, chopped walnuts, cinnamon, and vanilla extract to the mashed bananas. Mix well until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
  4. Shape the biscuits: Using a spoon, take small portions of the dough and place them on the prepared baking tray, flattening them slightly to shape them into biscuits. Make sure you leave space between the biscuits as they will expand slightly during baking.
  5. Baking: Place the baking tray in the preheated oven and bake the biscuits for approximately 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and slightly crispy on the edges.
  6. Cooling and Storing: Once baked, let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Once completely cooled, store them in an airtight container at room temperature to keep them fresh and crisp.

Suggestions:

  • You can customize this recipe by adding other ingredients such as sunflower seeds, shredded coconut or chopped dark chocolate.
  • If you prefer softer biscuits, you can bake them slightly less time. If, however, you want them crispier, extend the cooking time by a few minutes, being careful not to burn them.
  • These biscuits are perfect for a quick breakfast, a healthy snack or a light dessert after dinner.

With this simple and healthy recipe, you can enjoy the delicious taste of cookies without worrying about excess sugar.
