Breakfast Oat Biscuits

759 Views 2 Comments

I have never been much of a breakfast person. In fact, in years gone by when I was young and still climbing the Corporate Banking ladder, I was juggling being a married mom of two small children with a terribly busy career. There was no time for breakfast. I would get up before the rooster crowed, do a mountain of chores at home, and leave for work. This unhealthy habit has played into later life where I find myself not eating a healthy breakfast every morning, but instead drinking coffee and maybe having a rusk late morning if I feel peckish.

Many people do not like to overeat in the mornings and instead opt for a small bite that can be eaten quickly on the go if required. This recipe caters for that. It is healthy, loaded with antioxidants, can boost iron levels, is vegan and keto approved.

What you will need:

2 large bananas, mashed

140g rolled oats

80g pitted dates

20g desiccated coconut

50g ground almonds

1 heaped Tbsp coconut sugar or maple syrup

40g raisins


Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Mash the bananas in a bowl and add the remaining ingredients.

Mix thoroughly until ingredients form a thick, stiff consistency

Roll into balls (whatever desired size you want) and place on a baking tray.

Flatten each ball with a fork and bake for 20 – 30 minutes until done.

Notes:  I prefer a slightly soft biscuit, so I let it bake for the desired amount of time.  If you however prefer a harder biscuit, I suggest you flip them over after 30 minutes and bake for a further 30 minutes. Allow to cool in the oven.
