These are probably the healthiest things I've baked in a long while. The sweetness comes entirely from the raisins and mashed bananas - no added sugar! Plus the oats give it a lovely wholesome crunch. There's no flour involved so if you used the gluten-free oats (ie. those without rye or wheat), it's becomes a gluten-free treat. As healthy as they are, they taste awesome too. I really do love them and I only wish I made a bigger batch.
1 cup uncooked oats
1/2 chopped pecan nuts
2 mashed bananas
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line baking tray with baking paper.
2. Combine dry ingredients in bowl and mix well. Add bananas and oil, stirring to combine. Let stand for 15 minutes.
3. Roll the mixture into 4-cm balls and place on lined baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire racks and store in airtight container.
