Firstly, what a great week it was for Eat Sleep Bake Repeat last week! We’ve been invited to visit not one, but TWO Bristol radio stations to talk about baking and the blog. I need to take some baked goods into each one – which are your favourite recipes?
We’ve also got some exciting competition news coming up soon which I will announce shortly, but needless to say, I’m struggling to keep it under wraps 😀
We’ve had a few naughty recipes of late, so I thought it was about time for a healthy one. These little bites of delight contain NO butter, NO flour, NO eggs and NO sugar. Totally saintly.
This came about because I’d been baking a lot of sickly sweet cakes and bakes, and I just fancied something a bit lighter to have with my after dinner cup of tea.
This is a great, throw together recipe which you can adapt to put in whatever you have in. You could add chocolate chips or peanut butter if you wanted them to be a bit sweeter. Either way, these will take you about 15 minutes from start to finish – pretty much instant gratification!
These are healthy healthy healthy. If you’re on a diet you can totally have these as a little treat – they contain very little fat and few calories, but are packed full of taste and yumminess (Is that a word? It is now). They would also make a great pre or post workout enery bite to keep you going.
So, here we go.
1 ripe banana
75g rolled oats
25g dessicated coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
— Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Standard.
— Mash your nana. I used my beautiful KitchenAid to do this, but you can easily do it by hand in a bowl with a fork. I just like to get all the use I can out of it! Chuck in the rest of your ingredients and stir until completely combined.
— Form into balls, about the size of a ping pong ball, place on the baking sheet and flatten slightly.
— Bake for around 12 minutes until they are just starting to turn brown, then take out and leave to cool.
And it is THAT EASY! There now, there’s no excuse to be naughty all the time.
