These cookies are simple enough to whip up in the few spare minutes between changing the Little Beastie’s nappy, helping the Little Mathematician with his game and chasing an escaped chicken out of the radishes.
Scratch that. These cookies are simple enough for the 6 year old to whip up with minimal supervision while I change a nappy then chase a chicken. Got to love simple living 😉
Heat the oven to 180 °C while you throw a cup of quick oats, 2 broken up bananas (old and soft is ideal) and a heaped tablespoon of nut butter into a food processor. Your choice, any will do, but we like to use almond butter for these at our house. Blitz on medium speed until all of your ingredients are combined.
Add in a cup of choc chips. Fold them in gently with a wooden spoon until they are evenly dispersed through your mixture. Go a little healthier by swapping choc chips for cacao nibs. You could make this dairy free by using carob drops instead. Alternatively, you could take the fun out of it by using sultanas instead of chocolate :-p
Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a baking tray and flatten slightly. You should get 10-12 cookies. Into the oven until they are golden, about 15 minutes or so. They should be soft and a little gooey from the chocolate *drool*
These will keep in an airtight container for a couple of days…if you have the crazy kind of self-control that allows for cookies to be kept. In summer you may want to pop the container in the fridge- because melted chocolate.
