Banana Banana Biscuits

These biscuits are a great way to turn over ripe bananas into a wholesome treat. They are very simple to make and older toddlers can happily join in with the banana mashing and ingredient pouring. A perfect activity for a rainy day. Once made, these biscuits can keep for at least one week (if hidden away from little hands). The recipe makes around 20 biscuits.

Ingredients

  • 2 small ripe bananas
  • 50g butter or vegan margarine, melted
  • few drops of vanilla extract
  • 50g dried banana fingers, chopped or dried banana coins (the soft, chewy ones)
  • 50g oats
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 25g ground linseed
  • 25g raisins

Instructions

  1. Mash up the banana in a large bowl.
  2. Add the melted butter and vanilla extract to the mashed banana. Mix together.
  3. Add all of the remaining ingredients. Mix well.
  4. Leave to stand for 10 minutes and the mixture will firm up.
  5. Use a teaspoon to scoop out balls of the dough. Roll and then pat down on an oiled or lined baking tray.
  6. Bake at 180C for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Nutritional Highlights: These biscuits are a good source of fibre, potassium and B6 from the bananas. Oats also add fibre and bring some iron and protein to the biscuits. The linseeds have been used to add Omega 3 to these snacks.
  • First served at: 16 months
