Earlier in the year, I opted for a wheat free, dairy free diet to see if it would improve some health problems that I was having. I was already having a healthy diet but I did like a cake or chocolately treat now and then, mostly at the weekends or on a particular workday during tea break.
A dear friend of mine sent me a recipe for an easy 3 ingredient cookie which I have found can be easily modified to make into snack balls, cereal type snack bars or even cakes.
A soft ripe banana
One cup of oats
any extras of your choice such as cranberries, raisins, choc chips, etc
1. Mush the banana into a pulp in a bowl
2. Add one cup of oats, mixing together with a fork.
3. Add half a cup of raisins or cranberries.
(I also add half a cup of desiccated coconut into the mix and sprinkle some on the top too).
4. Make into the desired shape* and bake in an oven for about 15 mins at 180 degrees.
*I have tried this recipe as cookies, ball-shaped bites, a rectangular cereal type bar and as cakes. Each has been as successful as each other
And it’s that easy, no weighing, little washing up and they can be made and cooked (and eaten!) within 20 minutes. Perfect for breakfast, pudding, or an anytime healthy snack.
