I hope everyone s enjoying their Bank Holiday weekend! We’ve been having gorgeous weather and I’ve had more than one stroll around the harbour side. And since the Bristol 10k is right around the corner, I thought I’d make some healthy treats to fuel the long run today. These Berry Oat cookies are just the thing to give me a bit of healthy energy. Here is what you’ll need:
- 1 1/2 cup porridge oats
- 2 very ripe bananas
- 2/3 cup dried berries
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
You can actually customise this recipe as you like by using any combination of dried berries or other fruit. But if you’re curious, this is what I used (clockwise from the upper left): cranberries, blueberries, mulberries, and goji berries.
First, place both bananas in a bowl and mash them very well. The smoother the banana mash, the better.
Then add in the oats, berries, and pumpkin seeds. Mix very well making sure the banana is fully incorporated with the dry ingredients.
Spoon the mixture evenly on a lined baking sheet. Heat your oven to 350 C / 180 F and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
And there you have it, Berry Oat Cookies! This was perhaps one of the easiest bakes I’ve made! It’s also dairy free, egg free, no sugar added, and wheat gluten free as long as your oats are ok. And you can easily make this recipe your own by adding in whatever seeds, nuts, or dried fruit you like! You can even use up any extra Easter chocolate by chopping it up and throwing it in. However you bake it, I’m sure they’ll turn out delicious! Thanks for reading and Happy Eating!
