I personally have a massive sweet tooth, I find it so hard to say no to anything sweet particularly cookies! These may not be low in calories but they are full of fibre and protein with no refined sugars or flour. They are super easy to make without compromising on taste!! They are ridiculously moreish and perfect for those work lunch boxes as they are really filling and full of energy. Or have them with a classic cuppa…
This recipe makes 12 (approx 30g each)
1 Large Banana (approx. 130g)
65g Dates, chopped
150g Gluten Free Oats
100g Coconut Oil, melted
½ tsp Cinnamon
Pre heat the oven to 220°C/200°C Fan/Gas Mark 7. Mash the banana before adding the dates and oats. Give a quick mix before adding the oil, cinnamon and salt. Roll into small balls and place on a baking tray, lightly press down to flatten them. Refrigerate for 10 min before baking. Bake in the oven for approx. 17-20 min or until golden. Either enjoy fresh out the oven or leave to cool and place in an air tight container, they keep for around 1 week.
