Makes 12 cookies
1 Cup Mashed Ripe Banana (approx. 1 large banana)
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
2 Cups Rolled Oats (you can use Gluten Free if needed)
1/2 Cup Desiccated Coconut
1/2 Cup Cranberries (or raisins)
1/4 Cup Honey
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
Preheat your oven to 160C, fan forced.
Dump all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well.
Use a tablespoon to measure out 12 cookies and roll them into balls. Â You need to make sure they are really compacted before flattening them slightly between your palms. Â ThisÂ ensuresÂ they donâ€™t fall apart as you flatten them.
Place them on a lined baking tray and bake for approx. 25-30 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool beforeÂ eating.
Cookies keep well for up to 5 days if stored in an airtight container, but I can tell you now, they didnâ€™t last that long around here.
Notes: Â Each cookie contains Â 22 grams of Carbohydrates
To make these cookies Gluten Free, use almond meal in place of the oats and reduce the banana to 60g.
