  • Rolled oats  - boast soluble fibre that can help lower blood cholesterol. They also contain an antioxidant called bilirubin that can help eliminate free radicals, protecting your body from oxidative stress. Free radicals cause ageing… so make a double batch.
  • Bananas - are rich in a mineral called potassium. This mineral is important as it helps maintain fluid levels in the body and regulates the movement of nutrients and waste products in and out of cells.

Banana Breakfast Cookies

Banana breakfast cookies, like oatmeal but more portable. Just 4 ingredients and 30 minutes make time and you can hit snooze the next morning and grab a handful of these before heading out the door instead. We love oats because they’re really good for you, and pretty economical for what tends to be an underrated whole food. Oats might not look or sound as cool as açai but oats are a good source of fibre, specifically beta-glucans that can reduce bad cholesterol – so they’re good for your heart. Oats

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup Organic RAW Pitted Dates (chopped small)
  • 2 cups Organic Rolled Oats, Jumbo Wholegrain
  • 1 teaspoon Organic Ground Cinnamon

METHOD

  1. Preheat your oven to 175°C, and line a tray with baking paper.
  2. Mash bananas in a large bowl, then add in the chopped dates and oats. Mix well and leave to sit for about 15 minutes in the fridge.
  3. Use a tablespoon to create balls with your mixture, they should be around the size of a golf ball. Place onto your lined baking tray, and press down to form little cookies. Bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove cookies from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Store your cookies in an air-tight container, they’ll keep for up to a week.
