My First Attempt At Deliciously Ella’s Healthy Oat Cookies

Posted in Lifestyle

After reading some rave reviews and being addicted to her Instagram account I caved and bought the Deliciously Ella book in a bid to find healthier snacks.

The end products all sound lovely yet when you read the ingredients list it shocked me about how you could put dates within chocolate cake, or sweet potato in a brownie. But that’s the point, substitutions are possible and it’s amazing how healthy things can taste.

I decided to make the simple oat cookies to begin because what can go wrong with cookies? Plus the recipe seemed super easy and i’m not the best cook.

Although I didn’t realise how expensive healthy ingredients could be. After plenty of searching I found Boots to be the cheapest for coconut oil at £4.39 for a pot, and Holland and Barrett to be the cheapest for almond butter at £2.99 for a pot (although I doubt this would last more than 3-4 recipes).

The recipe was just 5 ingredients

  • 3 large bananas
  • 1.5 mugs of oats
  • 4 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons of almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

After mashing the bananas it was pretty much a case of chucking in the syrup, butter and oil and mixing together then adding in the oats so it was a gooey mess.

As you can see from my photos above the middle process did not look great and I wasn’t sure how it would progress but I battled on.

After they were fully cooked and I had the nerve to try one (i’m really not a banana fan!) I was surprised at how good they tasted.

The cookies were moist and surprisingly filling for something so small, and despite being obviously healthy they curbed my want for a naughty snack. So they did the trick!

I’m pretty excited to try out some more of the recipes within the Deliciously Ella book and I really recommend heading over to her blog to check out some of the recipes she has on offer.

Have you tried any of her recipes? Any idea what I should try next?
