Chocolate, Oat and Banana Cookies

Some of us can’t resist a bit of baking, when we have some free time. But baking usually means we eat lots of cake or other goodies. Try these oat cookies, for a lower calorie alternative to your usual muffins!

Oats are full of goodness – lots of vitamins and minerals and fibre. Specifically beta-glucan which is linked to reducing cholesterol and improving heart health.  As well as being packed with carbohydrate, oats are also a good source of protein.  They are one of the most nutritious grains in the world!

These tasty cookies are choco-nana-tastic, just don’t eat the whole batch!

Notes

I ate mine as a pudding with either a low-calorie yoghurt or a little bit of squirty cream.  Some I had as an afternoon snack as they are quite filling.
