I know I am a bit slow on the uptake but…… I finally got around to making the famous “2 ingredient” biscuits that are all over the internet!
I thought I would road-test them for any of you who haven’t tried them out yet. Anyone? Anyone?
So, what’s the verdict? Yes, they really are easy and yes, they do taste yummy and yes, it does work just fine!
Just 2 ingredients are required, but you can then add in whatever other ingredients you like to jazz them up. I had a play around with a few ingredients and quantities and this is my version of the famous biccy.
2 Ingredient Biscuits
Vital Stats: wheat free, dairy free, nut free, egg free, can be gluten free
Okay, so this is what you need:
2 medium sized ripe bananas
1 cup organic rolled oats
optional – your choice of add ins
HOT TIP: I never use quick oats as they have a higher GI than regular oats!
Okay, so this is how you do it:
Preheat the oven to 180°celsius and line a biscuit tray with non-toxic baking paper.
Mash the bananas and then add the oats. That’s it! Easy, huh?
You can also make them in the thermomix – whizz banana on speed 5 for 10 seconds. Add oats and mix on reverse, speed 5 for 10 seconds or until combined.
Shape into walnut sized balls with your hands or a teaspoon. Flatten down slightly.
Bake for around 15 minutes or until the biscuits firm up.
I got 15 small biscuits from this mixture.
Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.
There you have it – 2 ingredient biscuits!
HOT TIP! Make a double batch and freeze for school lunches!
Jazz up your biccy!
While my daughter liked the plain biscuit, the rest of us thought the jazzed up ones were nicer.
Let your imagination go wild and add in whatever you like!
The three I did were:
Chocolate: cacao powder and cacao nibs
Superfood: goji berries and chia seeds
Fruit ‘n Spice: grated apple, sultanas and cinnamon
I think they at least need some vanilla or cinnamon in them for a little flavour. If your kids have a really sweet tooth, you may need to add in a little raw honey or maple syrup.
Here are some more ideas for the add ins:
* shredded coconut, dried fruits, seeds, nuts, spices, vanilla, superfood powders, grated vegetables or fruits
This is a fantastic recipe to start the kids on learning to cook. It’s so easy and they can have fun making their own combinations up.
I would love to know if you have made these and what your add ins are. Please share!
HOT TIP! These are perfect for a grab and go breakfast!
