Everyone has the odd morning when they’re in a complete rush and have no time for breakfast. Or maybe you just aren’t a breakfast person (hard to believe some people actually don’t like breakfast). So I decided to devise a delicious, “grab and go” breakfast snack, thats super nutritious and should stop you reaching for sugary, unhealthy treats! My “Big Fat Banana and Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits” are real good and real good for ya, as well as having super simple ingredients and being extra quick to whip up. I know you’ll love them as a quick breakfast or a healthy lil treat!
- 2 Cups of Oats (Blended into rough oat flour)
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Large over ripe banana (mashed)
- 75ml melted coconut oil
- 1/4 of a Cup of honey
- A Generous pinch of Salt
- 1.5 Tbsp Vanilla
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
- 1/2 Cup of finely chopped Dates
- Optional: 1/4 Cup almond milk powder (it makes a reeeally delicious biscuit – you can find it in any health section)
- To start off, preheat your oven to 190ºC and line a baking try with wax paper or spray it with some non-stick spray.
- Blend the 2 cups of oats into a rough flour (there will still be some bigger oats in the mix, but there will also be a finer oat flour).
- Pop your oat flour into a bowl, along with the other dry ingredients (cinnamon, milk powder, baking powder, salt).
- To your dry ingredients add the mashed banana, coconut oil, honey and vanilla and mix until well combined.
- Then pop in your finely chopped date pieces into the mix and mix until they’re evenly dispersed.
- Once your mix is done, grab some and roll the dough into whatever sized balls you prefer.
- Place your dough balls onto the baking tray and press them down to the thickness you like (these biscuits don’t change shape in the oven). Then garnish the top of each one with three blueberries and give them a light drizzle of honey! (press the berries into the dough a bit, so they stay put).
- Pop ya beautiful little breakfast biscuits into the oven for 20 minutes until they’re golden and delish!
- Once fully cooked, turn off the oven and leave the biscuits inside to get hard (although bare in mind, these are not completely crunchy biscuits, as the berries keep them a bit softer).
- Then take them out and enjoy with a cup of something warm to make a pretty delicious lil breakfast treat!
*Store them in an airtight container
*You can mix these up by popping in some dark chocolate pieces, for a decedent twist, or keep them plain for a more crisp textured biscuit!
