I met my husband for lunch one day last week after spending the morning with his sister and her ADORABLE twins. I had a charming time with these 15 month old cuties. After lunch I treated myself with a trip to WOODMAN’S (heavenly music). The clearance treasures were not super exciting, though I’m kicking myself for bypassing a $5 pork shoulder after leafing through my recipe pile after I returned home that day. But I did bring home a brown paper grocery bag filled with at least 6 bunches of bananas. They were not overly ripe or in any way damaged. They were $0.99 for the entire bag!
Fate brought this Cooking Light video to my newsfeed yesterday, and it was an easy way to use up 4 bananas very quickly. Besides the oats, I used 2 tablespoons each of chia and flax seeds. I didn’t click for the printed recipe, but I used 4 bananas and a cup and a half of oats. I baked them at 350º for about 16 minutes.
Verdict: Not sweet at all, and Husband suggested brown sugar as another add-in. I think the chocolate chips pictured in the video would add the perfect amount of sugar. I didn’t think the treats were bad, but they also weren’t that great. There’s no way this will ever be a cookie to me, not without the flour to give it some crispiness. But if you want a guilt-free snack or treat, or a quick breakfast, this fits the bill. They are very easy and quick to make which is definitely a plus over cookies or muffins. I might make them again to experiment with some flavors and different sweeteners (honey, agave nectar, etc.). Other than that, I don’t think they’d become one of my go-to items.
