Easy banana protein oat cookies

Sometimes you just want a snack to tide you over in between meals or maybe just something small with a bit of fruit for those of you who don’t have a huge appetite at breakfast but want to get more goodness into your day. Then these are a great way to do that, plus, no added sugar!

I used a plant protein here to balance out the carbs but it also makes a good post exercise snack until you can get home/to work to make a proper breakfast. These cookies are also pretty flexible in terms of adding different ingredients to make them taste they way you want. I like coconut and berries as I used a white choc coconut flavour protein but you can do whatever you like such as spices e,g cinnamon/ginger or some chopped dark chocolate!

Banana bread carrot cake muffin mashup

Didn’t quite know what exactly to call these as when I first made them I wanted them to taste like a carrot cake flavour but somehow they just ended up like banana bread, which was really yummy especially warm from the oven.
Then the next time I made them I added lots of ginger and coconut and they tasted like carrot cake but the banana still came through so I decided to mash the two together because otherwise I just can’t decide which one it is lol!!

These are great for quick breakfasts once you make them as you’re sorted for a few days or they even make good post workout snacks if you go for the protein option below. They can also be adapted for many diets including: vegan, gluten free, sugar free etc.

I also love the addition of the pecans here, they’re one of my favourite nuts especially when roasted which really develops the flavour and it goes so well with the banana and cinnamon so I highly recommend you use these if you can find them, they’re also a great source of healthy fats which benefit the skin and satisfy hunger.

Snack options without lots of chicory/prebiotics

This is my selection of snacks that aren’t filled with chicory inulin as some people can’t tolerate lots of prebiotics without symptoms and it seems like it’s in everything these days!
Every protein bar i pick up seems to have a tonne of chicory in it which means anyone sensitive to this ingredient cant eat an entire bar and so will need to find a different option. Here’s a rundown of the ones I like and use regularly.

Boostballs: These contain natural ingredients for sweetness and protein so don’t contain refined sugar and the keto version is good too, they do have some acacia gum fiber but its not triggering like chicory so I also love those ones too
Find at Holland and barrett or Boots, Superdrug etc
