I rattled up a batch of these really simple Banana, Oat and Raisin cookies before work last Saturday morning. They really are seriously easy and quick to make. In despite of this, they are ludicrously tasty and relatively healthy too !
Kids visiting with their parents were only too happy to wolf down two or three each. Little hands kept creeping back to the tray for another. They are quite dense and chewy - but not overly so.
We often have overripe bananas that end up in the bin. I know you can freeze them and make them into cakes and ice cream.... but this is so simple with just a few ingredients. I'm sure I'll be making them again soon.
I used my Revolutionary Macaron Mats for ease. A spoonful of mixture into each marked circle produced 45 little banana cookies. This mixture does not spread. Just flatten a little with the back of a fork or spoon.
3 ripe bananas - mashed
2 1/2 cups of porridge oats
1/3 cup oil
1 cup of raisins
100g crunchy peanut butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup of golden syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat fan oven to 175 deg C
Literally just mix all of the above ingredients together and sit aside for 15 mins or so whilst the oven preheats.
Bake for approx 15 mins until golden. Allow to cool on a wire rack and then serve.
