no bake banana biscuits

no bake banana biscuits

banana bread flavour without the guilt. gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free banana biscuits that are packed full of protein.

I had never tasted a dried banana chip until a few years ago when I made Heston Blumenthal’s Banana and Bacon Cookies. Their sweet flavour and crunchy texture lead me to think of other ways to include them when baking. Recently I have enjoyed making a variety of protein balls. They are great as a breakfast on the run or a sweet afternoon treat so that was what I originally planned to do here. However, somewhere along the line I decided to mix things up and make them into biscuits. No secrets here – just a simple push of a fork onto the balls. 

ingredients

  • 200g medjool dates, pitted. If using regular dates add an extra 50g of dates and 10g of almond milk.
  • 100g almonds
  • 100g banana chips
  • 20g almond milk

directions

  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor, high power blender or Thermomix and mix until a paste forms that is  almost smooth with crunchy almonds and banana chips still visible. (Thermomix 30 seconds, speed 8).
  2. Using your hands, form the fixture into balls and then use a fork to flatten into biscuits.
  3. Refrigerate for 3 hours, preferably overnight.
  4. Enjoy!
