I don’t know about you but I like eating and I have a really sweet tooth but I don’t like to bother making them for hours so prefer super easy things to eat. Exactly like this cookie which by the way don’t have any flour, eggs and added sugar in it. Sound too good to be real? Yeah, I was sceptic too but then I tried it.
All you need is:
- Few ripe bananas,
- 1-2 mug(s) oatmeal,
- anything you like, like raisins, desiccated coconut, almond flake or whatever you fancy,
- 10 minutes to make it and other 15-20 minutes to bake it.
How you do it:
Peel off the bananas and tear them to small pieces then use a fork to make it creamy. Give the oatmeal to it and mix them well. Then add the other ingredients and keep mixing until you get integrated dollop. Preheat oven to 200 degree. Use a tablespoon to take small pieces onto a tray which is covered by baking paper. They don’t have to be nice, actually I think they look better if you don’t struggle too much. 🙂 Put it into the oven and bake it for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
- The original recipe which I used said 2 bananas and 1 mug of oatmeal but obviously it depends how big bananas you get. If I had used those 2 smaller bananas the whole thing would have become way too dry, also they were pretty ripe that point so I wanted to use all of them. My point is that you should use that amount which results a manageable, not too dry but not too soft dollop.
- The original recipe had bananas, oatmeals and raisins only. But I strongly dislike raisins so I left that out but I like every nuts and thought it couldn’t make it wrong. And they didn’t. But I still missed some color and fruit from it so maybe next time I’ll try it with dried cranberry or prunes.
- Also I baked the cookies in the middle part of the oven but the top of it wasn’t baked enough so in the last few minutes I replaced the tray to the highest point.
Ideal cookie if you have no time or energy but want to nibble something or you’re expecting (not so expected) guests. 🙂
Have a great weekend!
