Apple and Cinnamon Breakfast Cookies
« on: May 11, 2013, 11:43:58 am »
Apple and Cinnamon Breakfast Cookies

Makes 12

Ingredients
180g ripe banana or apple puree (no added sugar)
60g macadamia nut, almond or light flavoured olive oil
1tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
30g honey
1/2tsp ground cinnamon
200g rolled oats plus extra for coating
50g ground Hazelnuts
25g sultanas
25g chopped dried apples
50g chopped walnuts

Method
Preheat oven to 160 line baking sheet with baking paper.
Break banana into pieces and place in bowl with oil, vanilla paste, honey and cinnamon mix speed 4-5 10 seconds. Add remaining ingredients and mix reverse speed 4 for 5 seconds scrape down and mix for another 5 seconds on reverse speed 4.

Form into 12 equal sized patties and roll them in some additional oats for looks and texture. Place on baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Notes
If you want to make these nut free swap the ground hazelnuts for shredded coconut,  leave out the walnuts and increase the sultanas and dried apple to 50g each.

I have converted this from the Healthy Chef website.  The original recipe is here. She includes the nutritional information on her web site.

I have found these to be a good quick breakfast when you are running late or as a snack on a long bike ride. They should keep for a week in an air tight container in the fridge.

Reading these made my mouth water. I love anything with nuts and dried fruit in.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

The good thing about this recipe is you can legitimately eat cookies for breakfast!  ;D

I made these yesterday & hid them in the pantry for DH's lunch & last night he found them, his eyes lit up & more so once he found out I had made them.  He had to have one there & then & got a big thumbs up :)  He loves cookies so we will see how long they last!

I made another batch of these yesterday and they  were all gone in a few hours.
They are yummy at any time of the day and perfect snack for my dairy intolerant GD. Her dad had a fair few and took some home as well  ;D

I just made a batch of these to take on the boat foe fuel during tomorrow's Rottnest Channel swim. I forgot how good they are, I hope they last until then.
