Let's avoid food waste - the Oatmeal cookie version

January 24, 2019

 

Ever feel so hangry at school or work that you find yourself overindulging on an expensive, plastic wrapped

pastry from the cafeteria? Yeah, me too.

Luckily, there are healthier, more economical and sustainable alternatives! Here is one to remember.

 

You’ve bought bananas, and simply forgot about until they’ve turned this unappealing

brown colour…GREAT, let’s make oatmeal banana cookies.

 

What do I need?

       2 bananas (ripe) 

       Around 1 cup of rolled oats

       1 table spoon raw cacao

       1 tablespoon of raisins (or dried cranberries)

       1 teaspoon of cinnamon

       A (small) pinch of salt

 

Step 1. Mash the bananas with a fork

Step 2. Mix the other ingredients

Step 3. Make little palm sized cookies onto a parchment paper lined baking tray (oiled with

            coconut oil)

Step 4. Bake for 10 min in a 200C degrees oven

Step 5. (Optional)After the cookies are ready and cooled down, spread a thin layer of nut 

             butter on top

 

Keep refrigerated in an airtight container and enjoy on the go! Added plus, the bananas that

you might have thrown out are used to their full potential. #NoFoodWaste
