mango & coconut oat cookies

mango & coconut oat cookies

Rolled oats are THE staple ingredient I run out of the most often! I use it for everything, savoury or sweet, breakfast or dinner. High in fibre, naturally gluten free, if you chose the right brand, and so, so versatile. If you have oats and bananas you can always make cookies! Yes, bananas are another twice weekly must buy on the shopping list. The base recipe for these delicious cookies is just the 2 ingredients. You can add your choice of extras (seeds, nuts or choc chips) and make a thumbprint in the centre ready for a jammy filling.
