Healthy, but with a little chocolate chip kick so it still feels like you’re being a bit naughty. For this recipe, you simply need to mix mashed banana with oats and a little honey and coconut oil. Then leave the mixture for 10 minutes so the oats can soften and soak up the flavors. Then throw in the chocolate chips and a pinch of salt and you’re ready to roll the mixture into balls, flatten them out (they don’t spread in the oven, so no worries about cookies melding together or ending up like discs!) and put them in the oven. The result is a cookie that is golden and a little crispy on the outside, whilst being soft and chewy on the inside.
