I improvised these soft little biscuits in a fit of sugar craving. Don’t worry, they are still very good for you.
– 1 very ripe banana
– 1/4 cup of apple sauce
– 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
– 1 Tbsp of ground flax seeds
– 1 Tbsp of maple syrup (agave nectar would do fine too)
– 1/2 tsp of baking powder
– 1 cup rolled oats
– some chocolate chips of your choice (I find it hard to find quality dark chocolate chips so I simply take a few squares of a good dark chocolate bar and break them apart)
Start the oven at 350F (175C).
In a bowl, mash down the banana. Add the apple sauce, the vanilla extract, the ground flax and the maple syrup. Mix until smooth. Add the oats and the baking powder and mix until all the oats are wet. Add the chocolate and stir a bit more.
Place about 1 tablespoon per biscuit of the mixture on an oiled baking sheet (or a sheet lined with parchemin paper or a non-stick silicone sheet to avoid oil completely).
Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until the biscuit take a nice golden color.
