Give me a bunch of too-ripe bananas and I give you these wee gems…enjoy!
LUXE / HEALTH Banana + Oat Cookies
2 ripe bananas
2 cups oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup choc chips (substitute for raisins or chopped nuts if you want to ditch the chocolate!)
1 tbsp. rice malt syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
Dash ginger powder
- Preheat your oven to 140C, then in a large bowl, mash the ripe bananas well.
- Add the oats, coconut, choc chips, rice malt syrup, coconut oil and a dash of ginger powder (or cinnamon if you prefer) and mix well.
- Line a baking tray with baking paper then pop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the tray – should make 12-14 cookies.
- Cook for around 45 minutes at this low heat, then crank your oven to 180C for another 10-15 minutes to crisp up the outside. The cookies should look nice and golden brown but still be chewy on the inside so just trust your instincts when it comes to your oven and keep an eye on them!
