Banana Oat Cookies

Yes, more cookies. These are similar to the Apple Oat Cookies, but I think these are easier.

You will need:

  • 2 mashed banana’s
  • 140g brown sugar
  • 85g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 100g softened butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 160g plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 275g porridge oats

Method:

1. Put the banana’s, both sugars, egg, butter and vanilla in a bowl a mix well. My mixture looked very lumpy, some of it being butter, but mine still worked well. Preheat oven the 350*F/180*C/Gas mark 4, line a baking tray with baking paper .

2. Mix in the rest of the ingredients, adding the oats after everything’s been mixed together. Roll a table spoon of the mixture and place it on the sheet, flatten it slightly onto the tray into a thick disc. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy.!

Banana Loaf

This is taken from Abbie’s blog. This is one of the families favorite recipes as it uses up the leftover bananas and also tastes delicious.

Over to Abbie.

You can’t get much more simple than this recipe, it’s one of the first things I did. It doesn’t look like the easiest thing, but it really is as easy as 1 2 3! And is also a very nice way to use old bananas.

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 225g of plain flour
  • 175g of caster sugar
  • 1tsp of bicarbonate of soda
  • 1tsp of salt
  • 50g of walnut & almond kernels (chopped)
  • 3 mushed bananas
  • 2 eggs

What to do now:

  1. Mix together the flour, sugar and Bicarbonate of soda.
  2. Add the salt.
  3. Then add the kernels.
  4. Make sure it’s mixed well. Mush the bananas and then mix them in too.
  5. Beat the eggs in a cup and add that to the mixture so far. Mix until quite smooth.
  6. Butter a loaf tin and preheat the oven to gas mark 3. Stick it it.
  7. Leave it for aprox 1 hour or until a skewer comes out dry.
This is what it should look like.
This is what it should look like once sliced.
