Directions

5 mins to prep

20 mins to bake

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray.

  2. Step 2

    Add the bananas to a medium bowl and mash well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined. The mixture should be sturdy but moist. If your mixture falls apart easily, add a little more rolled oats and mix again.

  3. Step 3

    Wet your hands, grab a spoonful (about 2 tablespoons) of the mixture and place it on the lined baking tray. Repeat until you’ve used up the mixture. You should have about 16 cookies.

  4. Step 4

    Bake the cookies in the oven for 15-20 mins or until the cookies are golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking tray and enjoy.
