Banana Cookies

I have been having overnight oats Monday to Friday for the past couple of weeks and I was getting a little bored of it, I am not a massive fan of fruit and bananas are my go to thing, I like strawberries but don’t like the seeds (and they are damn expensive) and I like pineapple, I can just about stomach an apples but that’s it fruit wise…oh and red grapes but that’s it.

I was looking for an alternative for our breakfast and what I could do in ‘bulk’ as when we are both back at work full time preparing breakfast in the morning was never going to happen and I don’t want to get into the habit of skipping breakfast.

I had been researching for a few days things I can do in bulk and as money is tight I needed to do it on a budget, so I tried these cookies and while I admit they need ‘something’ more to make them delicious they taste just fine, I think it’s my taste buds saying ‘it’s a cookie! There is no sugar in it (well hardly any!).

Ingredients:

Cup of rolled oats

Small handful of salted peanuts (these can be swapped for chocolate chips or anything else)

Squirt of honey (I don’t use measurements and I use the squirty bottle of honey)

2 dashes of vanilla extract

Dash of milk

2 bananas mashed

Method

Preheat oven to 190 (no idea what that is in any other terms, sorry!)

Mash the bananas

Mix all the ingredients in together until it’s a nice consistency, if it’s a little runny add more oats

Put into a baking sheet (I used fry light as it’s all I had)

The mixture made 6 good size cookies but you could probably make more if smaller

Cook in oven for about ten to fifteen minutes until the edges are brown (mine got a little burnt)

Leave to set and enjoy, these will do two of us, 2 days breakfast.

Enjoy!
