I could not decide what to call these little oat cakes. The recipe I used labeled them as Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies but since they are so healthy I thought the word cookie was misleading. A perfect snack, I top mine with a little bit of peanut butter, but I imagine honey or chocolate spread would work just as well. You could also add chocolate chips or raisins to the batter. I would compare them to bite sized banana bread, and the oats add a wholesome bite. Next time I think I will add in some vanilla, or cinnamon for added flavor. Did I mention you can make them in less than 15 minutes?
Banana Oat Snacks (makes 12)
2 ripe bananas
1 cup oats
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mash the bananas in a bowl. Add in the oats and coconut, mix until incorporated.
Scoop onto lined baking sheet. Press on the dough to flatten slightly. Bake for 12 minutes. Easy as that!
