Its been a really long time that i have posted anything. Life has been quite hectic due to some or the other reason. So finally last weekend i ended up the monotonous schedule of not baking and posting anything new. I was flipping the pages of a cookie book to try out something interesting and to utilise the ingredients which are handy in my kitchen. I shortlisted one but i actually ended up giving it my own twist and all together a new name. Maybe after reading this post you guys can suggest me any new name for this recipe, your comments and updates are the source of inspiration; and suggestions are always welcomed. When cookie word comes in what rolls in your mind? for me it is some thing which i can grab and eat to give instant energy. Well it works good for me as an instant reliever of hunger. That is the reason why i wish to keep my cookie jar filled with nice healthy cookies.

Banana and dates cookie cups

Well the recipe which i am sharing requires following ingredients:-

  1. Ripe banana 3 nos
  2. Pitted dates 150gm
  3. Jumbo oats 80 gm
  4. Cornflakes 80 gm
  5. Sunflower oil 80 ml
  6. Vanilla extract 1 tsp
First of all mash the banana in a large bowl. Then add dates, oats, cornflakes, sunflower oil and vanilla extract. Give it a good mix and leave the mixture to stand for 15-20 minutes to firm up a little and for the oats and cornflakes to absorb some of the liquid.

Then line your cupcake tray with the cupcake liners and using a spoon drop equal quantity of mixture into the moulds.

Preheat the oven at 180'C or gas mark 4 and bake it for 15-20 mins. After it is down let it cool completely on a wire rack. Store in a airtight box and you are ready to grab a handful of healthy cookie every time you feel like munching. Or it works great as a healthy breakfast idea with a glass of milk.

So enjoy these crunchy cookies till i am back with another mouth watering recipe.
Healthy eating!
