These oatmeal clusters are proof that you should never judge a book by it’s cover. I can admit that they may not look overly appetizing but boy did they taste good! My recipe will give you 9 perfectly sized clusters that have a deliciously soft centre and are packed with flavour and goodness. Each bite will give you an instant hit of energy and are great to grab as a quick snack, not to mention they are only 76 calories each!
Ingredients (makes 9 clusters)
1 medium banana, ripe
75g rolled oats
18g flaked almonds
80g unsweetened apple sauce
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch ground cloves
Pinch ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
In a bowl mash together the banana and applesauce. Add the spices, salt and vanilla and mix. Add the oats, nuts and raisins and fold together until combined.
Take a desert spoon sized of the cookie dough and place it onto the baking tray. Repeat until you have 9 equally sized cookies leaving 1-2 inches between, flatten them slightly. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes.
