Homemade Oatmeal Banana Cookies

In deze blogpost voor het eerst ‘food photography’!
Afgelopen week heeft een vriendin van mij een recept van haar gezonde havermout koekjes gegeven. We hebben ze direct samen gemaakt op de campus. Ik vond ze zó lekker, dat ik ze dit weekend zelf nog eens wilde maken. Het idee om iedere stap te fotograferen maakte me blij. Dus zie hier: Sascha’s recept van ‘havermout bananen koekjes’! Nog leuker: ze zijn niet alleen erg gezond, maar ook nog ontzettend goedkoop om te maken!
Last week a friend of mine gave me a recipe of her healthy oatmeal cookies. We immediately made them together on campus last week. I thought they were so good, that I walked to make them myself again this weekend. The idea to photograph each step made me happy. So here it is: Sascha’s recipe for ‘oatmeal banana cookies’! And guess what? They’re not only super healthy, but also super cheap to make!
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 100 grams of oats
  • 30 grams of raisins
  • 10 grams of cocoa nibs
  • Optional: 1 tbsp of honey
  • Optional: cinnamon

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180°C / 360F.

Step 2: Sascha used ‘cocoa nibs’ in her recipe. My grocery store didn’t have them, so I bought an entire bar of dark chocolate. I took 30 grams of the bar and cut it into tiny pieces. I thought the recipe said 30 grams instead of 10, woops! But when we had 10 grams in it we barely tasted any chocolate, so if you like chocolate I’d take more than 10. Add the chocolate to your 100 grams of oatmeal.

Step 3: Take 30 grams of raisins. I didn’t have a scale on hand so I just estimated the amount. I’m bad at estimating so don’t judge me ;)

Step 4: Take your bananas and mash them.

Step 5: Add your dry ingredients to your mashed bananas and mix. 
Step 6: Add honey and cinnamon if desired.

Step 7: Put your mixture on a baking tray. You can form rounds for the cookies, but I chose to make 1 big square and cut it into pieces after baking. Put your tray in the oven for approximately 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celcius.

Voilà. Your cookies!

When my mother tasted one she asked me if I had put any sugar in there. No mom, they're all clean!
