WELCOME TO MY WORLD
A little glimpse into my daily life
I am not the biggest fan of sweets like candy, cake (unless it’s my mothers freshly baked cake) etc. but I will admit that I adore a good cookie once in a while with my coffee, when I need to “spoil” myself.
These oat cookies can at times be my life saviour – especially on busy days where I am running round between events, meeting or whilst traveling, they keep you going.
They are full of all the goods like: Flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, oars, banana nut butter etc. You will LOVE them! They are also delicious as a pre workout snack, and good for summery picnic dates.
All you need:
2 large Ripe Banana
1/4 cup Peanut Butter Unsweetned
1/4 cup Honey
1 tspn Vanilla Extract
1.5 cup Oats
1 tbsp Chia Seeds
2 tbsp Pumpkin Seeds
2 tbsp Chopped Almond
2 tbsp raisin
large pinch Cinnamon (optional)
2 tbsp Flax seed
pinch of salt
1 tspn Baking Powder
Step by step:
Smash the bananas in a mix bowl using a fork until there are no big lumps left.
Add peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, flax meal to the smashed bananas and mix gently
Add your oats to a food processor and pulse a couple of times to break the grains to half. (this step is optional and can be skipped) I use them whole, since I like the cookies to have bit of a “bite” to them.
Add the oats, nuts, seeds and raisins to the mixture, and mix it all together.
Preheat your oven to 180 degree, and in the meantime your mixture can rest.
Using a small ice cream scoop or spoon for applying the dough in a baking tray.
With a slightly wet hand press the dough to the desired thickness.
Bake your cookies at 170-180 degree Celsius for about 25-30 minutes. (Keep an eye on them at all times, because they can easily get too much, depending on different ovens etc.)
Bake till your cookies edges are a bit crispy but it’s okay they feel soft at the centre. That will harden up once cooled down. The them of the baking tray and place them on a grate so that they can get air underneath and won’t soften because the heat can’t escape from the cookie. If you don’t do that they will be soft and boring – so this step is quite important.
I hope you love my filling, tasty and healthy oat cookies as much as I do. Let me know if you decide to bake them. I am going to fly to London this weekend for a few events, and I am already really excited to bring a few of my homemade cookies with me!
Lots of love your
