You might notice I rarely cover any sweet treats or baking in my blog, it’s mostly because I just have a very savoury taste but I also find baking in general a bit stressful, what with the measuring, the exactness, the not knowing if it’s working until the last moment… I think it kills my creativity a bit. Plus I don’t like having cakes in the house because I just end up stuffing my face!
These three ingredient oaty biscuits couldn’t be easier to make, and you can add anything you like to them to make them different every time. I chose dried blueberries but you could try adding in things like chocolate chunks, nuts, coconut, anything you like! I also used porridge with added quinoa and sunflower seeds as it was all I had to hand but any porridge will work.
Really Easy Oaty Biscuits
Makes about 12 biscuits
- 3 ripe bananas
- 300g Porridge oats
- 25g dried blueberries
- Margarine for greasing
Preheat the oven to around 180c and lightly grease a flat baking sheet. In a bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until puréed – mix in a little milk to get them going if you need to. Add in the porridge oats and dried fruit and stir together. You’re want to aim for a pasty texture so add more oats if you need to, or if it gets too dry add a little milk.
Form into small balls about 2 inches big and then press down onto the baking tray to make small biscuits. They don’t spread during cooking so you don’t need to leave too much of a gap. Place in a hot oven and cook for 15-20 minutes. I flipped mine half way through as some of the blueberries were catching slightly but that’s up to you.
