I hadn’t planned on making these today. Infact, I remember reading about this almost a year ago and thought, hey that’s a quickie. But the thought of skipping breakfast today didn’t go down to well with me. That’s when I decided to use the strawberry apple flavored oats and over ripe bananas on my counter. All you’ve got to do is mix and mash the oats with bananas and add your choice of mix-ins.
I used a few walnuts but you could add raisins, chocolate chips, chopped dry fruits or cinnamon, oh the list can be endless. But they taste pretty darn good without the mix-ins too..I didn’t add any extra sugar as I was trying to keep it “healthy”..but if you want it on the sweeter side, by all means do add sugar. These “cookies” come under the chewier and denser side. Very rich and highly filling. I have no idea how long they’ll stay good cos I have just finished eating all of mine. 😀
This recipe can be easily doubled.
Yield: 8 medium sized “cookies”

Preheat oven to 150℃
Mash the oats with the banana well.
Add your choice of mix-ins.
Scoop tablespoon full on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
