In our neighbourhood we used to have the loveliest little bake shop called, fittingly, the Beaches Bake Shop. Anna baked the best Swedish goodies and the little bakery was warm and inviting and Oscar spent his toddler years going with me on dates here to try Swedish Cinnamon buns, breakfast cookies and I would in turn enjoy some coffee in peace. Anna closed the bakery and is now in Sweden, but the memories of her bake shop are still strong in both our memories. A friend, Janice, posted a cookie the other day, and it was exactly the same cookie that Anna used to make in the bakeshop, and I immediately whipped some up and Oscar DEVOURED them. No flour. No sugar. No eggs. And yet – AMAZING. Here’s Janice’s post on Instagram.
1. Take 2 ripe Bananas and mush them up
2. Add 1.5 cups of Quick Oats (see my note below though)
3. Add some extras like chocolate chips, coconut flakes, cranberries
4. Roll into balls and flatten – bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes
Janice mentioned Quick Oats but I used these and it was totally fine!
