If you don’t have time to make oatmeal in the morning, these delicious ‘cookies’ are an easy way to still get all that energizing plant based protein, iron and fibre.
The seeds are high in healthy fats for good energy and they’re sweetened only with banana – no added sugar.
Make a double batch and freeze them individually so you always have a healthy breakfast ready to go – no excuses.
makes 8-10 cookies
Heat the oven to 350 and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, mashed bananas, seeds, carrots and raisins. Stir together until the mixture is wet.
Form the dough into 2 inch round balls and lightly flatten them to a “cookie” shape. They won’t change shape as they bake so make them the size and shape you want. Sprinkle with cinnamon (as much as you like).
Bake for 15 minutes or until they are lightly firm but still soft in the middle. Cool for 10 minutes.
They will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 4 days or individually wrapped tightly in the freezer for a month.
