Recipe for making Oaty Banana Bites

oaty banana bites

These are based on a recipe from the fb page Feed your family for about £20 a week.

They are ideal for breakfast on the go, or a sweet treat which is quite filling (well, it is when you’ve had three!!). You can leave out the chocolate, or substitute it for dried fruit of your choice.

Ingredients

Two large overripe bananas

Two cups of porridge oats

Five squares of chocolate (milk or white, or a mixture)

Method

1. Pour the oats into a bowl.

2. Cut the tops off the bananas and squeeze the insides into the bowl.

3. Chop the chocolate roughly into small pieces and add them to the bowl.

4. Mix thoroughly until all the ingredients are combined.

5. Roll into 12 balls of equal size.

6. Place them on a baking tray, with baking paper on it, with spaces in between. They won’t spread so you don’t need large spaces.

7. Put in the oven at 160 degrees for about 12-15 minutes. If you’d like more squidgy bites, leave for less time.

8. Leave to cool and then enjoy!

Banana Muffin Recipe

I have constantly got over-ripe bananas in my house, that get chucked into the freezer for using on a later date. Time to get using some! Hence the next recipe for the Bakehouse Blog!

Ingredients

200g self raising flour

pinch of salt

3 large bananas, mashed

150g caster sugar

1 egg

75g  butter, melted

Method.

1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Place 12 paper baking cases in a muffin, or cupcake, tin.

2. Put the flour and salt in a bowl, then set aside.

3. Combine mashed bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter in a large bowl.

4. Fold in flour mixture, and mix until just smooth- don’t over mix.

5. Spoon evenly into baking cases in muffin tin.

6. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until muffins spring back when lightly tapped.

These muffins will freeze well, but they also last for at least three days after baking too. I’m going to play with this recipe and add oats, cinnamon etc, and play about with reducing the amount of sugar too.
