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!

Description

Delicious, oaty, banana goodness


Ingredients

300g Porridge Oats
2.5 small bananas

1 tsp Vanilla Extract/ Essence


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C
  2. Unpeel the bananas and mash them in a bowl until they are a soft and uniform texture.
  3. Add Vanilla Extract for added flavour
  4. Add the 300g of porridge oats into the banana and vanilla mixture.
  5. Add the chocolate chips- I chose dark chocolate for a rich, chocolatey flavour.
  6. Once mixed together, mould into 12 cookies.
  7. Bake in the oven at 180 C for 10 minutes.

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.
