5 Ingredient Oat Cookies - The Garden Eatery

5 Ingredient Oat Cookies

July 19, 2020

Having a healthy snack readily available on a busy day is a great way to avoid that mid afternoon hanger rush, which often leads to the urge to grab something less nutritious, less affordable and often less enjoyable.

These Oat Cookies are quick and easy to batch cook at the start of the week. Rich in protein, healthy fats and fibre, they are nutritionally balanced, helping to stabilise blood sugar levels and leave you feeling satisfied until your next meal. The dried fruit works to curb those 4pm sugar cravings too…winning!

Made with only a few ingredients; give them a go and be sure to let us know what you think!

Ingredients

Makes 8

200g Rolled Oats

2 Ripe Bananas

1tbsp Sultanas / Dried fruit of choice

1tbsp Nut butter

1tsp Cinnamon

Method

Preheat the oven at 180c.

Add the oats to a large mixing bowl with the ground cinnamon and sultanas. Mix.

Mash the bananas and gradually add to the oat mixture, stirring throughout.

Spoon in the nut butter and mix until all ingredients are combined.

Time to bake!

Mould the mixture into your desired cookie shape and size. Repeat. Add the cookies to a greased baking tray and place in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes, flipping throughout.

Enjoy warm or leave to cool and store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Happy baking!
