The other day, my kids asked me to buy them some cookies in the shop. When I eventually got home and tried them, they were awful. I thought to myself, what’s in this and I was shocked at the ingredients. Nobody should be putting this sort of thing into their bodies. I then went online and looked for a few recipes, after some research this is the culmination of my work. Neil Bowman Training proudly presents Neil’s Healthy Homemade Oat Cookies.
Ingredients – Healthy Homemade Oat Cookies
- 2 large (140 grams each), ripe bananas
- 2 large (50 grams each) eggs
- 2 1/2 cups (200 grams) rolled oats (certified gluten-free if necessary)
- 1 cup (260 grams) peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven to 350°F/180 °C. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
- Add the ripe bananas and eggs into a medium mixing bowl. Mix with a
spatula, mashing on the banana to get chunks as small as possible. Add the
- Oats, peanut butter, honey, and salt, and stir until just combined. The mixture
will get thick and hard to stir.
- Use a 1/4 cup measure to portion cookie dough into 12 balls. Take each ball
and split it in half to create 24 smaller balls. Roll each ball and lightly smash it
between your palms to create a mini cookie.
- Place the cookies on the baking sheet. Bake until the edges start to brown, 12
to 15 minutes.
