Gather
  • 30 g sugar (granulated or caster)
  • 30 g butter (we used Vitalite)
  • 1 medium banana mashed
  • 65 g oats
  • 55 g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Prepare
  1. Cream the sugar and the butter together until you have a smooth creamy mixture.

  2. Beat the banana in, then add the oats, flour, baking powder and ginger.

  3. Gently mix until combined, then spoon 12 walnut-sized balls onto a lined baking sheet (space apart as they will spread). Gently press down to make them a bit flatter.

  4. Bake at Gas Mark 4 (350f / 180c) for 12-15 minutes. They should be lightly golden on top and starting to brown around the edges. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the baking tray before moving to a cooling rack.

  5. If you wish you can drizzle chocolate over the top once cooled for extra yumminess! :)

  6. Store covered (a plate with kitchen roll on top is fine) for up to 5 days.

  7. Enjoy! :)
