How nice to start your day with cookies! Say whuattt :O ?!? Yup, cookies for breakfast is the new thing, I’m telling you! I made these last night and they’re made out of 3 simple key ingredients, oats, bananas and dates. You can then personalise your cookies by adding other seeds, dried coconut flakes, nuts or dried fruits. Just whatever you like best.
If you’re into pistachio nuts, then honey, go add some crushed pistachio nuts. If you’re into linseeds, then honey, go add some linseeds. If you’re into.. well you get it by now don’t you :P? Also, these cookies won’t take much of your precious time, just 10 minutes to prep them. Pop ‘m in the oven for 30 minutes while you’re reading a nice book. Knowing that the book will even be much nicer to read when the cookies are done so you can eat while reading. oh, life is GOOHOOODDD :P (thank me later lol).
As you may know by now, I’m seriously the worst foodblogger out there as I always have a hard time to write down the exact quantity of each ingredient I use for my recipes. Cooking on gutfeeling just always works for me so my apologies for not being super exact. Just use your beautiful eyes to see if the dough is perfect. If you like your cookies more chewy then let the ‘dough’ feel more sticky using less oats. If you’re more into super crunchy then add more oats so the cookies will turn out more solid and crisp.
Ingredients for 8-10 cookies:
- 1 banana
- 4 dates (get rid of the seed inside if you want to keep your teeth)
- broken linseeds
- some raisins
- some dried grated coconut
Preheat your oven on 200 C. Blend the dates and banana into a smooth ‘dough’ using a kitchen machine. Now add at least 1,5 cup of oats and whatever extra ingredient you like.
Use a bakingsheet before layering your cookies on the ovenplate. Pop them in the oven for about 35 minutes. Just check on them every now and then until they turned nicely golden brownish.
