Today’s Try Me on a Thursday treat is inspired by one of the chefs at my daughters old school (shout out to Miss Carol!!). Miss Carol made the BEST oatmeal and raisin cookies which were ADORED by parents and students alike!! However, I have made a few substitutions to make a guilt free version!!
2 Ripe Bananas
2 Cups of Oats
1tsp Cacao Powder
1 handful of raisins
- Simply mash the bananas in a bowl with a fork
- Stir in the oats, cinnamon and raisins
- Form into small balls (I managed to get 10 out of this) on a greased baking tray and flatten out with a fork.
- Bake in the oven for 10-15mins on a medium heat
I have to say, these cookies are absolutely moreish considering its full of all things good for us! They are the perfect post workout snack or something to sink your teeth into along with that afternoon cup of tea!! If you don’t like raisins, you can sub with dates, cherries, nuts etc etc!!
Let me know what type of cookies you like!!
