10 mins prep for a healthy treat. This recipe will make 10 to 12 biscuits – very easy to make and a fantastic snack for all. One bowl – mix, lay out and bake – done!
1 very ripe banana
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1⁄4 to 1⁄2 tsp cinnamon (depending on how much you like cinnamon). 2 tbsp smooth almond butter or peanut butter
1⁄4 cup almond flour or ground almonds
1⁄4 cup coconut flour
1 tbsp cornflour
1⁄2 tsp baking powder
1⁄4 tsp salt
1 cup porridge oats (use gluten free oats to make a gluten free treat)
Optional ingredients – 2 or 3 tbsp chocolate chips, vegan chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, seeds or dried cranberries
Pre-heat the oven to 190C. Mash the banana in a bowl until smooth. Add the rest of the wet ingredients and mix until fully combined. Handy tip – it helps when mixing if the bowl is slightly warm (you can do this by keeping it near the oven). This will allow the nut butter to mix in faster. Add the almond flour, coconut flour, cornflour, baking powder and salt and mix in. Add the oats and chocolate chips and mix in. If you are using any of the optional ingredients mix them in at this stage. Flour your hands and make flat biscuits from the mixture and place in a tin lined with baking paper. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes until golden. Cool on a wire tray and then enjoy. Store in a Tupperware container and will last for 2 days or you can store in the fridge for up to a week.
