Are you needing some healthy ideas for your super ripe bananas?
These Banana Oatmeal Anzac Biscuits may just be the answers to your prayers!
As a lifelong lover of cakes and cookies, I’m always up for a simple, healthy recipe I can incorporate into my regular rotation.
I tend to over-purchase when it comes to organic bananas. I think I have the perfect amount, but then I forget about them for a few days and WHAMO!… I have dark, spotty bananas a-plenty!
But no more! These delicious little nuggets are low in fat, vegan friendly and super delish!
I’ve even taken to spreading some natural almond butter on top to ramp up the protein and healthy fats and sometimes I dip them in coconut yoghurt for dessert (but that can be our little secret!)
What you need
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups instant oats
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup sultanas
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup desiccated coconut
¼ cup honey
What to do
Mash bananas in a bowl, then add applesauce, vanilla, cinnamon and honey. Stir to combine.
Add the oats, coconut and sultanas, allowing the mixture to sit for 5 minutes if necessary to allow the oats to absorb the delicious liquid ingredients.
Drop spoonfuls of mixture onto a lightly greased oven tray and bake for 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius, or until golden brown.
