These muffin-like bites use only pureed banana as a sweetener, have no added oil, and use whole-grain oats and oat flour. Added bonus: They can be made in just minutes!
Ingredients, Makes 8 servings
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup oat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 cup pureed overripe banana (roughly 2 large bananas)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, oat flour, baking powder, sea salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir through until well combined.
Add the banana and vanilla (and chocolate chips, if using) to the dry mixture and stir through until combined. Using a cookie scoop, place mounds of the batter (about 2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons) on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Variation: Try raisins or other dried fruits in place of the chocolate chips!
Bake for 14 to 15 minutes, until slightly golden. Remove and let cool on pan for just a minute, then transfer to a cooling rack.
