Banana Oat biscuits

I love these delicious, soft biscuits – They are very easy and quick to knock up as they are made from ingredients that I always have on hand.

They are low in sugar and free of refined flours but they are sweet enough to take the edge off those cravings.

The fibre and protein help them to boost your energy levels and keep you full for a while and the cinnamon is useful for stabilising blood sugar levels … what’s not to love?! Great for afternoon tea…. Or even breakfast!

See below the recipe for a Coeliac version and a few extras.

  • 2 medium bananas, very ripe
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup nut and seed based protein powder (plain almond or seed meal if you’re short on time!
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp milk of choice (unsweetened vanilla almond is great here)
  • 3 tbsp aquafaba OR 1 whole egg
  • Pinch pink salt flakes

Blend together all the wet ingredients, including the banana, until just smooth (speed 5, 6 secs)

In a separate bowl mix together the oats, seed/nut meal, salt and cinnamon. (Speed 4, 6 secs)

Add the banana mix to the dry mix and process until well combined (speed 4, 8 secs, scrape and repeat if required).

Place spoonfuls on a lined baking tray and cook in a preheated moderate oven for about 12 minutes.

I think these are best served with an afternoon cuppa!

Makes about 24 biscuits.

Extra Options:

To make these coeliac friendly use 2 cups puffed rice and 1 cup rolled quinoa in place of the oats.

Add a tbsp of cocoa or cacao for a chocolate version.

For a nut free version check the protein powder recipe.

For a sweeter option stir through some chopped dried fruit (dates or sultanas are my favourite but cranberries or apple work too) … Or even a handful of chopped dark chocolate.

Enjoy 🙂
