With 2 small children in the house i constantly need snacks… and since i don’t buy a lot of snacks (i do buy some!) i need make snacks.

These biscuits are my own personal variation of the “Two Ingredient Biscuits” that have been doing the rounds on my facebook feed for a while now. I have made the biscuits with just 2 ingredients (bananas and oats) and they were o.k. Not great, but my kids ate a few of them… i didn’t like them and as a family we have never finished a batch. So i accepted the challenge and tried to make them a bit more interesting but still healthy and nutritious.

Quickie Bickies

1 cup oats

1 ripe/over-ripe mashed banana

1-2 Tblspn Honey

1-2 Tblspn Peanut Butter (preferable natural/organic with no additives)

*1 egg (optional – you can add another half to one bananas to keep the biscuits together – but i like the added protein of the egg!)

*1 tspn cinnamon (optional – for flavour)

*2 Tblspns Whey (optional – i soaked my oats for a few hours in a little whey first – read about the benefits here and here)

*Raw cacao (optional – i used about 1 tspn in half a batch of these biscuits, just for a little variation)

Mix batter by combining all ingredients in a bowl. Add any optional ingredients you like the sound of – i used all of them!

If your batter is too runny (that depends on how much honey/peanut butter/whey/egg/banana you use) then add a few more oats until it holds together a bit more.

Using a dessert spoon plop a splodge of mixture on your baking tray (either oiled or with baking paper) and cook in a 180C oven for about 15 mins. I like them when they get nice and golden around the edges.

These biscuits go soft after about 24hrs but they are still fine to eat and can be crisped up in a hot oven for 5mins if you prefer.

 

Enjoy!
