Banana Oatmeal Cookies


Recipes to use up old bananas! I can never have too many of the former - because I always seem to have the latter. So, here's yet another one. And it's a good one! It's fairly healthy - I used wholewheat flour than regular, and it contains so-called "smart food" like linseed, walnuts and chocolate that are all high in anti-oxidants. And no oil or butter!

Ok, it's still a cookie. But as far as cookies go, it's not that bad.

Banana Oatmeal Cookies
makes 24

125 ml wholewheat spelt (or wheat) flour
250 ml rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp crushed linseed
75 ml sugar
60 ml milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 banana
150 ml dark chocolate, finely chopped
100 ml walnuts, finely chopped

Mix everything. Shape into small balls, and place on a baking sheet. About 12 per sheet is good - they don't spread a whole lot during baking. Bake for 10 minutes at 175°C.

Banana and oatmeal are a great combination but I never thought it could be made into cookies. They're wonderful, by the way and I'd like to try that recipe one of these days.
