Oatmeal Banana Cookies : 3 Ingredients
I am one of those people who really want to live and eat healthy but I can’t go long without the need of something sweet. For those weak moments I have collected quite a few healthy recipes to take away the cravings. These banana oatmeal cookies are the ones I have found myself reaching towards for a lot lately so I thought why not share them with you lovely bunch!
I know these include dark chocolate so probably not everyone considers these as healthy snacks but I always use a chocolate that contains at least 80% cacao. It’s better than milk chocolate at least hehe. Well enough rambling, let’s get into the easiest recipe you have ever seen!
Two ripe bananas
100g dark chocolate
2½ dl gluten free oats (all-purpose and whole wheat oats work too)
Using fork, smash the bananas in a large bowl. The batter doesn’t have to be smooth, there can be blobs of bananas. Then roughly chop the dark chocolate using a knife. Add dark chocolate and oats to the smashed banana batter and mix them together.
Make about twelve round balls out of the cookie batter and place them on a baking sheet. Gently press down each ball so it flattens into a round disc. The cookies won’t spread during baking so there does not have to be much space between them.
Bake the cookies in 200 degrees for 10-15 minutes and enjoy!
A special thank you to Bob Dalton for sending this in to us!
