I am not a food blogger, but today I am sharing a favourite recipe of mine for some very easy, quick-to-make Banana-Oat Cookies.
Honestly, today was not the best day. We were meant to travel up North today to see some relatives and visit a good friend of mine. Because of a Covid case we had to adjust our plans (again – originally we had planned to go last week!) and were gonna go tomorrow instead. But this morning SJ woke up with a fever so I ended up cancelling my train. I was pretty sad!
Also, a day with a sick toddler is pretty exhausting. However, SJ and I made some cookies! We have a so-called “Montessori learning tower”, which basically is a stool with a railing, so that SJ can reach the kitchen side and help me cook. She takes a lot of interest in whatever I am doing and wants to help.
Making food together with her is a little bit more messy and takes longer. Despite this, I like involving her. It’s basically sensory play for her. She is a bit of a picky eater and I am hoping that preparing food might make her more willing to try new things and experiment.
And today we made these super easy Banana-Oat cookies. I often make them when I have some bananas that need using or when I want a sugar-free treat. Here’s the recipe!
Simple, healthy Banana-Oat Cookies
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1 cup of oats
- 3 Tbsp peanut butter
- 1 handful dairy-free chocolate chips (optional)
- Peel bananas and mash them with a fork
- Add oats and peanut butter and mix in evenly.
- Fold in chocolate chips. If you want to keep the cookies sugar free, you can also omit the chocolate chips.
- Using a tablespoon, form about 18-20 cookies and place on a baking tray, lined with baking paper.
- Bake at 150 degrees on the fan setting for arount 12-15 minutes. You want the cookies to brown slightly. Put on a plate to cool.
Enjoy! They are lovely with a cup of coffee.
