Racefully team member Sarah followed Deliciously Ella’s recipe for chewy sultana cookies, and they turned out fabulously! Oats are a fantastic slow-release energy source that keep you feeling full and the best thing about this recipe is that there’s no need for any fancy ingredients or equipment. These cookies are made from ingredients that most of us already have in our kitchens (or if not they’ll most certainly be in the nearest Tesco!).
- 270g oats
- 4 ripe bananas (about 500g)
- 3 tablespoons of honey
- 150g of sultanas
- 4 red apples (about 550g)
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 200C
- Grate the apples (no need to peel them) and mash the bananas
- Drain the excess water from the apples using a sieve
- Mix the rest of the ingredients together
- Scoop tablespoons of mixture onto a greased baking tray and pat them down into flat cookie shapes.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden. Watch them carefully as the sultanas have a tendency to burn
There you have it. The cookies are a perfect mid-morning or afternoon pick-me-up. The energy provided by the oats will give you a boost without the crash that follows a super-sweet snack.
The one thing Sarah said she’d try to change next time she makes these cookies is the texture. Toasting the oats with the honey before mixing in the rest of the ingredients might make them a little more crunchy.
Thank you Deliciously Ella for the great recipe. Feel free to share your favourite oat-based snack ideas.
