I am not the most patient cook, I am known for my quick and easy healthy meals, the easier and quicker the better (and by quick i mean 10 minutes prep maximum!) I am not one for pouring over measurements or following recipes especially not when cooking with Kobe. This is how these biscuits were born! These are so easy to make, really tasty, healthy and toddler friendly. Kobe and I make these together pretty much every week, we put on some cheesy tunes, dance and throw the ingredients in, kid cooking friendly and great for an afternoon snack for all! Give them a try and let me know how you get on!
2/3 ripe bananas
Cup of Oats (I use Gluten free as I’m intolerant) – Amount of oats will depend on the size of your bananas, you want the consistency of the ‘dough’ to be sticky and pliable and not too thick.
Tablespoon of Maple Syrup ( you can make without this if you want them to have less sugar, you can also use honey or any other desired sweetner)
Couple of drops of vanilla essence
Spoon of oat cream (or coconut or soya cream – again this is optional – I have made without this addition, but it just adds a bit to the texture)
Sometimes we add seeds, nuts, cinnamon, desiccated coconut, cherry pieces, peanut butter, vegan chocolate spread, literally anything we have in the cupboard and they are always delicious!
Jam of choice for thumb holes (We use 100% fruit jam)
Mash up the ripe bananas in a bowl, then add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Spoon onto a slightly oiled baking tray, we use a heart shaped cookie cutter and spoon the ingredients in to make the shape, just use whatever you have! Make holes in the middle with yours (or your child’s) thumb add a spoonful of jam to each.
Put in oven at 200 degrees for roughly 10-12 minutes (or until golden brown and slightly crispy around the edges. Use a spatula to peel off the baking tray and leave to cool down before devouring! The jam can be really hot so do check they have cooled before eating.
