Quick and healthy Banana Cookie recipe!

I’m sick of breakfast.

Dun dun DUUUUUUN. 

I never thought I’d see the day where I wouldn’t want some variation of eggs and avocado in the morning, but for the last few days I’ve not been feeling it.

After my morning run, I needed something to eat – and fast.  So I drew from my bare cupboards what I could and decided to go for a really quick and simple recipe I’ve not made in a long time – banana cookies!

Ingredients (makes 8):

2 bananas

150g oats

optional add-ins:  vanilla extract, chocolate chips, raisins, spices, dried fruit – anything really!

They have the carby satisfaction that comes with banana bread, but they are much healthier, and take a maximum of 20 minutes to make.


Blend the oats until they have a flour-like consistency.



Mash the bananas up in a bowl (or in my case, in some Tupperware).



Add in the oat “flour” and any extras (I went for vanilla extract, cinnamon and ginger), and mix it all together.



Spoon the mixture into equal balls and place onto a greased baking tray.



Bake in the oven (180º fan oven) for 10-15 minutes.

And then enjoy!!!


I had half of these with a mug of green tea and I was surprisingly full for at least the next three hours.  Not bad for a two ingredient breakfast!  I’m going to try and makes these again when I have chocolate chips and raisins in, because I imagine the flavours would go really well with the recipe.

So all in all, a good easy breakfast, and I’ve kept the rest wrapped up in a cool, dark cupboard ready for tomorrow!

Does anyone have a favourite go-to breakfast?  Let me know!
