Creating the Healthy Cookie

I've been on a look out for cookie or health bar recipes and there are quite a few out there. It's a great mixture of oats, nuts and dried fruit - depends on what you want in it. But the main idea is to have a healthy snack, great for breakfast, or even trailfood, or just when the nibblies attack during the day and you want something sweet to chew on!

I found one that had minimum ingredients but maximum taste. No flour (not even wholewheat flour), no eggs - but did use some oil, to bind it all together. With a little more fine tuning to this recipe, I think it can be an ideal healthy treat.

It called for bananas, oats, dates or sultanas and oil - but I threw in some pecans for some crunch. No added sugar! And the result was an amazingly sweet concoction of good stuff, with the sweetness mainly coming from the bananas and sultanas.

I'm still thinking of a name (health cookie?) and further variations (like adding muesli perhaps?)

Watch out for this tasty experiment!


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
