5 Minute Banana & Oat Cookies

With some slightly overripe bananas on hand the other morning I whipped together these delicious BANANA OAT COOKIES in about 5 minutes. They’re so wholesome and flavoursome, great to tuck in a lunchbox, to be honest though if you’re running late in the morning and need a quick brekkie on the go they’re a great one to grab as you’re heading out the door!

This recipe is dairy-free, refined sugar free and vegetarian and makes 10-12 cookies

    Hello:) could I use almond meal if I don’t have linseed?

    • Kate Parker February 7, 2020 at 2:29 pm

      Hi Ellie,
      The linseed helps with the binding process, so chia would probably be the best alternative.

    Hi there! Just wondering if these are freezable?

    • Kate Parker February 9, 2020 at 9:59 pm

      Hi Lizzie, they should be. But they haven’t lasted long enough for us to check yet, let us know how you go if you do!

    Do you have to use an egg? Would a chia egg work?

    • Kate Parker February 12, 2020 at 10:29 am

      An egg has a little more binding power for this sort of recipe, so I’m unsure whether a chia egg would pass muster. You could try a mini version before you crack out all the ingredients though.
