Spiced Banana Oat Cookies


Do you usually have a sudden urge to bite or chew on something, especially at work and in-between meals?  Well, I have that all the time.  This habit could be harmful on the waistline, not to mention spoiling the appetite for the main meals.

The solution is to chew on something healthy but carrots and celery sticks are not the only options.  These spiced banana oat cookies have no added sugar, are healthy, chewy and provides just the right kick to get your blood sugar up to a safe level.  Only thing you need to watch out is how many you pop into your mouth!

Ingredients:

4 ripe bananas
175gm quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg powder
1/4 cup chopped dried apricots (or any other dried fruits of your choice)
1/4 cup chopped raisins
1/4 cup coarsely chopped roasted unsalted peanut

Method:

Mash the bananas and mix with the oats.  Add in the ground cinnamon and nutmeg.  If the mixture is too dry, add another half a banana.  If the mixture is too wet, add some more oats, a tablespoon at a time, until you get a thick consistency.

Add the dried fruits and nuts into the mixture and mix until well incorporated.

Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a greased baking sheet, flatten it a bit and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees C for about 15mins.

Once cooled, keep in an airtight container and enjoy the biscuits when you have a sudden ‘hunger’ pang.
