Last week I opened my fridge to see three full boxes of oats that I hadn’t even touched. Oats are a staple in my family and I use it for smoothies, breakfast bowls, fruit parfaits and the likes. So, with more to spare than what I really needed, I tinkered with a recipe I had in mind for a while: an easy as pie 3-ingredient cookie recipe that will use up some of the oats.
This recipe is fabulously delicious and easy to make! I made about 10 of these and didn’t even create a dent in my overload of oats.
Oats are some of the healthiest grains on earth with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. With really satisfying macronutrient contents, oats very nutrient-dense and ideal for a healthy diet.
With that in mind, here’s what you need to make 10 medium sized banana-oat cookies!
- 1 & 1/4 cup oats (instant or otherwise)
- 3 small plantains or 1 large banana
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to gas mark 1 (145C)
- Mash the banana until very few lumps remain
- Add the oats and vanilla extract
- Mix until well combined
- Spoon dollops of the mixture on to a lined tray
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and crisp while the middle is chewy to the touch
I added some toppings to oomph up the taste with some dark chocolate and protein powder – these turned out to be delicious. You can add cinnamon or any other flavors you like to take it to a whole different level!
These cookies are yes in my book for a quick guilt-less snack! They’re 61 calories each (pictured below) and your macros are 10.5C/2P/1F!
Hope you guys enjoy the recipe!
All my love,
