Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

Oh yes, totally agree with Cheri that these home-baked banana oat cookies are loaded with fiber and great for morning brekkie.
Depending what nuts you've got ... I just mixed whatever I can find ... adding the crunch to the chewy cookies !


Recipe adapted from Cheri of Mysavoryspoon
Slightly modified below replacing some ingredients not available.

Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies
Makes about 14 - 16 (depending on the size of the measuring cup/spoon used)

Ingredients:
3 medium-sized ripe bananas
40g rolls oats
50g peanut butter
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
38g unsweetened dessicated coconut
40g slivered almonds, walnuts & sunflower seeds
50g raisins

Method:
Preheat the oven to 180°C.


In a large bowl mash bananas with the back of a wooden spoon, stir in the oats, peanut butter, honey, vanilla and cinnamon, stir well. Fold in coconut, nuts and raisins and let mixture sit for 10 minutes so oats can absorb moisture.


Using a 1/4 measuring cup fill with mixture and drop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. (I used a big soup spoon instead, flatten the dough slightly)

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.

Crispy crust and soft chewy, nutty cookies with sweet banana fragrant .... Yummy !
