These so called bites probably commit numerous culinary sins as there was no method to there evolution, just simply me, the baking cupboard and a bowl. They are rustic yet charming in appearance and exceptionally tasty! They resemble the effortless, therapeutic side of baking that I adore and are made even more perfect by the thick chocolate coating.
Please excuse me whilst I run downstairs to grab another one!
125g Brown Sugar
2 Very Ripe Bananas
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
250g Plain Flour
For the Topping
150g Milk Chocolate
Pre heat the oven to 180C and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar before beating in the egg. Mash the bananas and add to the bowl along with the vanilla extract. Stir everything together.
Tip in the flour and oats and mix until you have a very soft dough.
Spoon the mixture onto the tray (you can either do 2 trays at once or just one at a time) leaving a good gap between each bite. Gently flatten out each spoonful so that it resembles a fat, disk shape.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and leave to cool.
Heat the chcocolate gently in the microwave until melted and spoon over your banana creations. Allow to set and they're ready to munch!
