If you’re like me and the rest of the world and your a banana bread aficionado, you are going to be all over these walnut & banana cookies.
They are sweet and a healthy treat and lovely with a cup of tea any time of the day and so easy to make.
There’s nothing artificial or processed about them. Guilt free treats, get on it.
What you need:
•2 bananas, ripe
•½ cup (120g) peanut butter
•1 tbsp. vanilla extract
•5 tbsp. coconut sugar
•2 ¾ cups (250g) rolled oats
•1 tsp. cinnamon
•1 tsp. ground cardamom
•¼ cup (25g) walnuts, crushed
•1/2 large organic carrot, grated
What to do:
Heat oven to 350°F (180°C).
In a bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the peanut butter and vanilla extract. Add all the remaining ingredients (apart from walnuts and carrot) and mix well.
Fold in the walnuts and grated carrot, and mix them using your hands.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and divide the batter into around 12 balls. Place them on the baking tray and lightly flatten them with a fork to shape the cookies.
Bake for 12–15 minutes, until the outside is golden brown. Allow to cool before diving in.
