It has been over a month since I banned processed sugar and white flour from my daily diet. As I said before, the transition was surprisingly smooth. My family and friends do not realise that it has been a huge change for me .. I mean really huge. If my late grandfather and best friend would see my eating habits now he wouldn’t believe it. We used to be partners in crime during the Eid days when it came to eating all the chocolate in the house my grandmother reserved for the guests 🙂
As easy the transition was, there was one thing I did miss during the past month … biscuits/cookies to go with my glass of milk.
But today, when I was looking for healthy dessert recipes without sugar I came across Heidi’s 101 Coobooks blog where she published her friend’s Nikki’s “Healthy Cookies Recipe“. Me being me, and also not having the exact ingredients at home, I changed the recipe a bit and was blown away by the way they turned out. And it was unbelievably easy and fast to make as well. I made a big tray full and there were only six left when I last saw them in the kitchen.
Without further ado, here comes the recipe with the title: easiest, healthiest, tastiest, bestest cookie recipe I’ve seen. Pity that my photo doesn’t do the cookies justice.
- 4 ripe bananas
- 1/4 cup rape oil
- 2/3 cup raisins
- 2 cups of oat bran
- 1 cup ground almonds
- 1/3 cup coconut flakes
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
Mix all the dry ingredients. Blend the bananas in a large bowl with a hand blender and add the oil and raisins. Add the dry ingredients and mix everything using a spoon. Take tablespoon fulls of the mixture and place them on the baking paper leaving some distance between each.
Bake at 180 C until they get brown underneath (takes approximately 30 minutes)
