If you feel like you have exhausted all the snacking options for the kids, then I highly recommend the @thehealthboost and their Easy Peasy Healthy Cookies. These are super simple to make, really delicious and full of healthy grains and fruit. They are so easy, the children could get involved too. Pack these up as part of a picnic or as a healthy bite on the go. YUM! Thank you to the @thehealthboost for allowing us to share this recipe with you.
Makes 8-10 cookies
150g gluten free rolled oats
Juice of one blood orange
1 tablespoon maple syrup
3 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
cook time: 20-25mins
Preheat oven at 180°C.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, place the peeled bananas and mash with a fork.
Add the oats, maple syrup and orange juice and combine well.
Now is the time to add your choc chips
Stir to combine.
Take a tablespoon of the mixture at a time and place on to the baking sheet, shape and leave space between cookies.
Repeat until all your mixture is used up.
Place in the oven and cook for about 20 minutes.
Take out of the oven, leave to cool for 5 minutes.
They are best eaten warm straight out of the oven.
THE HEALTH BOOST TIP
These cookies are especially delicious straight out of the oven, but keep well. The choc chips can be replaced by another nut or seed of your choice.. Sweetened only by fruit and maple they are the perfect healthy treat and provide a good source of fibre with the oats.
