Easy Oat Cookies

These are my favourite everyday cookies. Literally, there are always some in my house so they are available everyday! Great for a healthier sweet treat or when you crave a little snack.

I’ve made these with different types of plant-based milk but my favourite is almond or cashew. As for nut butter I’ve tried crunchy and smooth – both are great and also different types such as almond and peanut I prefer the peanut but both worked fine!

You could also replace the raisins for chocolate chips but I find the raisins help add sweetness and moisture that chocolate chips do not. Dried cranberries or other dried fruit might work a treat. If anyone tries any different versions of this recipe, I’d be interested to hear how it goes!

Recipe:

1 Medium/Large very ripe Banana

1 tbsp Nut Butter

Dash of plant-based Milk

Dash of Vanilla extract

1 ½ to 2 cups Oats

¼ cup Raisins

 

Makes 12-15 cookies (depending on size)

 

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees (190 fan).
  2. In a mixing bowl mash up the banana with a fork. Add in the nut butter, a dash of milk to loosen the nut butter if it’s a bit firm and a little bit of vanilla extract – mix together all the liquids.
  3. Stir in the oats half a cup at a time to combine fully – the mixture should still be a little moist and sticky – do not add too many oats or the cookies may be a bit dry.
  4. Stir in the raisins.
  5. On a greased/lined baking tray divide the mixture into 12-15 lumps depending on how big you want your cookies to be.
  6. Bake the cookies for approx. 15-20mins until slightly brown and the raisins have swollen.
