Ingredients
 

  • 1 cup (90 g) rolled oats (certified gluten-free if necessary, see notes)
  • 2 ripe bananas

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F).
  • Peel the bananas and add to a large bowl. Mash thoroughly with a fork until you have a thick liquid consistency.
  • Add the oats and mix well to create a batter.
  • Using a fork or spoon (or your hands), divide the mixture into roughly 8 even balls and space these out on a non-stick baking sheet. If you don't have a non-stick baking sheet, use a sheet lined with greaseproof paper or a non-stick baking mat.
  • Use a fork or spoon to flatten the balls into round discs and tidy up the edges. The shape won't change much during cooking, so decide on the size at this stage.
  • Bake in the oven for around 12-15 minutes or until the cookies are set and starting to turn slightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before eating.

Notes

Oats: You'll want to use rolled oats (a.k.a. 'porridge oats' or 'quick oats') rather than 'steel-cut' or 'pinhead' oats. The latter take longer to cook and are much better for recipes like vegan haggis.
Gluten-free: Oats are naturally gluten-free, however they may sometimes be processed in an environment where there’s a risk of cross-contamination. To ensure that this recipe is 100% gluten-free, use oats that are certified GF.
UK measurement: For me, one standard US cup of oats was equivalent to approx. 90 grams. This recipe isn't an exact science, so feel free to tweak if you prefer a higher ratio of oats to banana.
Other additions: You could also try adding ingredients like vegan chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries, peanut butter or another nut butter, chopped nuts, chopped dates, fruit jam, ground cinnamon, or nutmeg.
Storage: Once cool, store in an airtight container and consume within a couple of days.
