Healthy Cinammon, Banana and Oat cookies!

29 Jan

I can NEVER give up the feeling of having nice, crispy cookies with my tea in the afternoons, but instead of feeling the guilt of all these empty calories and fat going into my body, there’s no better way than to make your own cookies, so you know exactly what they have inside, and there’s nothing better than using our good friend oats, and a bit of cinnamon to give it that awesome flavor, with some banana and honey to make our sweet tooth happy too!

When i usually make cookies, i try to cut back on honey as i know it is quite high in calories, but this time I did add a tablespoon, because in the end, it’s worth it, as you really feel like you have eaten a “real” cookie, and don’t feel like you’ve been deprived from anything, but…just the healthy way 🙂

I love cinnamon, it has to much taste, and its benefits are actually endless, I might post an article on the benefits of cinnamon alone in the future, it’s flavor really satisfies me all the time, and I think it’s one of the reasons i fell in love with these cookies, so if you’re a fan of cinnamon like me, then make sure you ADD PLENTY!

 

2 cups oatmeal

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup crushed walnuts

1 tbsp honey

1 mashed banana

1 tbsp cinammon

handfull raisins

Mix all together, scoop into a non-stick pan, make sure they are all the same size so they bake evenly,

bake for 20 minuets on 180 degrees.

    Looks good! Did you use cassia cinnamon or true Ceylon cinnamon? I’ve written a post about the differences that you might be interested in reading.

        You and me both! I’ve never heard of “nobel” cinnamon. Is that the type of cinnamon or the brand name?

        it’s the brand name,
