Now, these cookies look very healthy, but they don’t taste it 😉
Of course there is fat and sugar in the chocolate, but the truth is there’s only a couple of specks of chocolate in each cookie, so how can that hurt really? If you’re being ever so strict you could leave the chocolate out and I’m sure the cookies would still be lovely, but since Miranda found a bar of Moo Free in the cupboard that we didn’t know we had, we decided we wouldn’t be 😉
To make these nutritious treats, this is what you’ll need:
- 4 very ripe medium to large fair trade organic bananas
- about 80g of fair trade organic vegan chocolate (optional)
- 3 ounces of organic sultanas (or other dried fruit)
- 8 ounces of organic rolled oats
- a little water to make the mixture the right consistency
Preheat the oven to 180°C
Mash the bananas with a fork in a mixing bowl and then add the sultanas (or raisins or other dried fruit) and the chocolate cut into little chips. Mix it all together well.
Put the oats into a food processor and mill them into a rough flour, then add it to the mixing bowl (or you can add the oats without making them into flour) and thoroughly combine with the other ingredients. Add a little water, if needed, a tablespoon at a time, and mix it in to make a nice, moist cookie mixture.
Then put heaped teaspoons of mixture onto a lined baking tray and flatten them with the back of a wet spoon.
Bake them for about 20 minutes or until they are as golden as you like them,
keep an eye on them and rotate the tray if necessary 🙂
And there you have it: delicious and nutritious – they tick all the right boxes!
They’re a lot yummier than they look I promise you 😀
