Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.


  • In a mixing bowl, mash the banana well with a fork
  • Add the oil and sugar and mix well
  • Add the flour, baking soda, salt and any vegan powdered spice/flavour you like
  • Mix these ingredients well, until the mixture is quite moist
  • Now it’s time to add the oats, any nuts and seeds you have chosen. Mix really well to make sure it is all well distributed and stuck together
  • Make small balls with the dough and place on an oiled baking tray
  • Flatten the balls with the palm of your hand, making sure there is a reasonable gap between each disc shape
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes (depending on how browned you like your cookies) in a preheated oven (200 Degrees Celsius)
  • Leave to cool on the baking trays once finished in the oven and once they are slightly hardened, twist and lift to remove them from the tray and place on a cooling tray for a further 10 minutes

Tips – If your dough mixture is too greasy, add a few more teaspoons of flour. If your dough mixture is too dry and not sticking, add a little more oil until the mixture holds better.
