These are excellent fuel for during moderate intensity exercise or adventure days. Pop them in a baggie or in your pocket and you are ready to go. The only 2 ingredients required are quick oats and banana. Feel free to add ingredients to your liking or whatever you have in the pantry at the time. Have bananas that are turning brown and need to go? These are a quick, easy way to use them up.
1 cup quick oats
1 cup mashed banana (about 2 bananas)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon nutmeg
½ cup dark chocolate chips
⅓ cup dried cranberries or raisins or dried cherries
⅓ cup shredded coconut
⅓ cup crushed walnut or almonds or pecans
Mix all ingredients together.
Spray oil on a cookie sheet or grease with butter or oil
Form the cookies into bite-size pieces, about 1 inch diameter balls or discs. Place on the cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.
Let cool for 5 minutes and taste test, then pack
Notes: If you used a lot of add-ins, you may need one more banana to keep it moist and hold together.
