Just let your creativity flow.

    Hedi, your photos are beautiful and this recipe would surely win over everyone, even the people who think vegans only eat salad every day! I’ll definitely be making various versions of these to have as a healthy treat, how long do they last in a tin? (always supposing I don’t go crazy and eat lots while they’re still warm lol!)

      awww thank you lovely. And couldn’t agree more with vegan food being much more than salads! The variety is endless, just requires a bit of creativity! They will last max.5 days because there is no flour , or egg to prolong the use by date. Enjoy loads lovely Lottie xxxx

    Thank God I found your blog. I cannot wait until I detox so I can get started on your recipes.

    I do not enjoy cooking or baking, therefore the more ingredients a recipe has the more reluctant I am to make it, but this banana and oat recipe takes the biscuit, it’s all for me. Easy, healthy and fuss free.

    Thank you so much.

    Just made these for the last day of a nutritional/weight loss class and they were a HUGE hit!! I added about an 1/8 cup of chia seeds [This was the first time I’ve used them so I was being cautious :)], cinnamon, and a teaspoon agave nectar. Bananas don’t last long in my house so it wasn’t terribly ripe. Even my 2 boys loved these, Thanks so much!!

    Hi there. The oats I buy need to be cooked in water or milk. Could these be used for making these biscuits? I am assuming they get cooked in the oven? Thanks.

    Hello. I tried this recipe yesterday. It’s lovely and healthy. The only problem is that my twins like to eat crispy biscuits. Mine were perfectly shaped and all, but soft. Even after cooling. Is there something I can do?

      For a bit more crunch add some seed or nuts Amrita. Hedi xx
