Banana & Oat Breakfast Cookies


These delicious cookies are the perfect breakfast for those in a hurry! Or a great post workout snack. Made with natural sugars from banana and honey then mixed with a selection of nuts and seeds to provide some essential good fats.

They are also gluten free and the recipe can be adapted to cater for any other dietary requirements. 

For chocolate lovers I have added chocolate chips to this recipe which makes them even more delicious.

These cookies should be enjoyed as part of a healthy balanced diet. They may seem high in sugar but this is natural sugar and combined with the nuts, oats and seeds these will not cause a large insulin spike and will keep you fuller for longer.

If you wanted you could add a scoop of protein to increase the protein content. Or if you don’t like some of the ingredients change them for other items such as dried fruit.

Each cookie contains- Cals 268, Carbs- 38.4g, Fat 10.58g, Protein 5.3g, Sugar 27.9g

Ingredients- Makes 12 cookies

150g Porridge oats

2 x Large Ripe Bananas 

50g Chopped Hazelnuts

25g Pumpkin Seeds

15g Chia Seeds

100g Milk Chocolate Chips

3 tbsp Honey

2 tbsp Whole earth crunchy peanut butter

2 tbsp Almond Milk or Milk

1 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Cinnamon 


Method-
Pre heat your oven to 180 degrees

Grease a baking tray with a little oil or butter.

Mash your bananas in a large mixing bowl then add the oats, baking powder and cinnamon. 

Give this a good mix and then add the rest of your dry ingredients.

Give this another good mix and add the almond milk. The mixture should be wet and not too dry. If it is add some more almond milk and give this a mix making sure you have collected any dry bits from the bottom of the bowl.


Using your hands make 12 balls and pop these onto your baking tray. Lightly press these down so they resemble a cookie shape.


The cookies will not expand during cooking time so they can be placed close together on the tray.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Turning the tray around half way through cooking time.
