Healthy cookies

Hellllooo!  I think it’s been over a year since I last posted anything on my blogs.

It wasn’t through lack of inspiration but more from lack of time. 

Since this time last year I’ve been busy working, busy leaving England, busy living it up in Australia and busy working! 

I’ve been in Australia for almost 7 months now and it’s the longest I’ve spent away from home and not living with my parents – go me I’m turning into an actual adult! And it’s not flippin easy. 

Most people think they become independent adults when they go off to uni and have to start budgeting but from observation I can tell you students are hardly what I would call responsible adults. 

‘I have £5 left for the week and no food… It’s Thursday… Oh it’s £2 a pint night at the flying unicorn…’ 😑. 

I never did the student thing so I aways felt like while students are terrible examples of adults I was still a long way from adulting. However my experiences in Australia have shown to me that I am indeed ready for being a real life grown up! I’m paying friggin rent! And like budgeting and doing a proper food shop (always have a notepad which I add food items to during the week ready for the weekend).

Ugh.. Why do bloggers always blab on about their lives when really what we want is a god-damn healthy cookie recipe! 
Sozzzaaa. (Not-sorry) 

Here it is then 😘

Healthy Cookies

This recipe is ridiculously quick and easy so start with pre-heating your oven to 180c (350f)

Ingredients  

 2 large ripe bananas 

3/4 cup pure apple sauce (no added sugar etc)

1tsp vanilla

1tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt (the good kind none of that table sals) 

1tbsp honey (make it 2 or 3 if you want really sweet almost sinful cookies). Also if you’re vegan simply substitute honey for a natural sugar/sap.

1 cup oats blitzed 

2 cups oats whole

200g approx frozen raspberries (optional, add dried fruit or choc chips of you waannaa)

  
(Handy little Apple puree tubs from aldi)

Method

Firstly blitz that 1 cup of oats in one of those really good blenders/bullets that EVERYONE seems to have. In a matter of seconds you have an oatty flour like powder. Stick that in a bowl till later. 

   
 
NEXT!

Don’t bother washing the blending vessel. Chuck your nanas and blitz them up nice and smushy. It’s fair to say at this point that blending these ingredients isn’t essential, you can mash the bananas with a fork and just use whole oats throughout.

  
Scrape out your liquid banana into a large mixing bowl. 

  
Add the apple sauce, cinnamon, vanilla, honey and salt. Mix mix. Add the blended oats. 

Mixxxx. 

  
Add the whole oats and raspberries. Give those rasps a crush as you chuck em in. 

  
Carefully mix together. The raspberries will bleed and turn the cookie muxture a cook red/pink colour 😋.

  
Shape into little cookies or balls or bars what eves. 

   

   
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until darker in colour and firm. 

   
 Delicious.
