How do you like to eat your bananas?
My son and I love bananas but we are very fussy about when we best like to eat them...perfectly yellow and ripe. A couple of days later? The flavour really changes in my opinion and we prefer to make smoothies in our house, either to drink straight away or to make creamy iceblocks. (We like to use the juice left over from tin fruit instead of milk.)
I was very pleased when a friend posted this recipe on facebook...
Banana biscuits Source: Kidspot
Method: Preheat oven to 230°C. Line baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar. (Mine was a half hearted attempt and they still worked out ;-)
Stir in the bananas until combined.
Stir in flour, oats and coconut.
Place teaspoons of the mixture on the tray, leaving room for them to spread.
Place in the oven and turn it down to 200°C.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Yummy and a great way to use up over ripe bananas!
The website suggests pecans or dates for a boost and I think I will try slivered almonds next time.
Next week I'm going to try a banana muesli bar recipe. Please sing out if you have one.
