These 3-Ingredient Healthy Oat And Raisin Cookies are really simple to make, they contain no flour, no eggs, and are sweetened with just bananas, take a few mins to make and most importantly taste delicious. They will curb pangs for something sweet to snack on. If you want a healthy breakfast full of good stuff and low in sugar, try this healthy treat recipe.
As whole fruit is used it contains sugar but as it’s not refined it retains all the fiber and is absorbed slowly into the bloodstream. I often have these breakfast cookies on the go thinking they are something indulgent but actually they are one of the healthiest breakfasts you could have. Some other healthy cookie recipes call for instant oats, but I’ve found out there is no need to buy expensive processed oats, simply blend normal rolled oats for a few seconds in any blender.
If your avoiding gluten just makes these cookies with gluten-free oats. They do work better with the cheaper oats that are soft and crumbly.
This healthy cookies recipe is no added sugar as it just contains natural healthy sugars from whole fruit. The cookies are low calorie due to having no refined sugar or butter and are very filling. Some call them super healthy cookies that are perfect for fussy children others call them heart-healthy cookies.
If you’re not a fan of raisins you can replace them with other dried fruit such as cranberries, dates, apricots, and prunes – just make sure to chop the fruit into small raisin sized chunks.
Makes 6-10 cookies
3 medium-sized bananas
1½ cups / 150g rolled oats
2 tablespoons of raisins
1. Grind the oats for a few seconds to make an oat powder, or simply blend them in a blender or food processor. It doesn’t have to be fine, they just need to be broken up a bit.
2. Peel the bananas and then mash them. Mix everything together until combined.
3. Spoon onto a nonstick sheet and spread out to make a cookie biscuit shape. The mixture makes 10 normal sized cookies or 6 large.
4. Bake for 15-20 mins until golden at 350°F / 180 °C.
If you want a chewier cookie, simply take them out of the oven as they start to get some colour. For a crunchier biscuit leave until they are golden brown. As they have fresh banana they will go off quickly so it’s best to eat straight away.
These 3-Ingredient Healthy Oat And Raisin Cookies can be stored for a few days in the fridge but the cookies will lose their crunch.
