I had the idea for these little oaty, crisp, cinnamon-infused, squidgy Banana Breakfast Bites the other day.
I was thinking that sometimes, a bowl of porridge is not what we fancy first thing in the morning....occasionally, a little tasty nibble with a cup of tea or coffee fits the bill so much better!
These are really easy to make, very delicious, and produce a wonderful, warm 'freshly-baked' aroma for the household to wake up to....simply wonderful.
They are 3pp/approx. 200kcal per portion.
You will need: (per portion)
1 medium just-ripe banana
30g Porridge oats
Cinnamon (to taste)
Frylight Sunflower oil
Heat the oven to 220 degrees centigrade.
Weigh out the porridge oats and mix with the cinnamon and a few sprays of Frylight Sunflower oil. Chop the banana into chunky pieces.
Spray the banana with a few sprays of Frylight oil. Pop each chunk into the oats. Roll and press the oats to coat each piece of banana.
Pop them onto grease-proof paper on a baking sheet.
Sprinkle any remaining oats onto the tray as they will go crispy and delicious.
Spray with a few more sprays of Frylight oil.
Try not to use more than 20 sprays of Frylight in total or you will have to add 1pp. However, if you do decide to add the propoint, you can use up to 40 sprays of oil!
Bake for 20-30 minutes until the oats look toasted and crisp. Remove from the oven and allow to cool down for about 5-10 minutes before eating as the baked banana is extremely hot and soft.
A very nutritious and filling little brekkie.
