Fruity Oatcakes

What you need: 

2 mashed bananas
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons molasses
1/2 cup hot water
1 apple-cinnamon flavored tea bag (but chai or any variety of black tea would work)
1/2 cup raisins
1 peeled apple, diced into tiny pieces
1.5 cups rolled oats
1 cup flour of choice (I used a mix of potato flour, oat flour, and spelt flour)
1/4 teaspoon of salt

What you do: 

1) Place the teabag mug with the hot water. Let the tea steep for 5 minutes, then remove the tea bag and add the raisins to the mug.
2) In a medium sized bowl, mix together the banana, molasses, and cinnamon until paste-like.
3) After 5-10 minutes, remove the soaking raisins from the tea (with a spoon... do not throw out the tea water) and add them to the banana mixture. Mix the diced apple into the banana mixture.
4) In a large bowl, mix the oats, flour, and salt. Add the wet (banana) mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix until the entire batter is quite moist. If the batter is too dry, add the reserved tea water as needed to moisten it.
5) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or you could grease a baking sheet lightly).
6) In order to produce round oatcakes, I used the lid of a Mason jar. I took the metal lid and packed it full of batter. Then I inverted the lid onto my baking sheet, removed the outer edge of the lid, then carefully removed the "suction" part of the lid from each oatcake by wiggling a knife under it slightly. I thought this technique was great...but others might want to stick to regular cookie cutters :P
7) Bake the oatcakes for 15 minutes, then flip the oatcakes over, then bake them for another 15 minutes. Note: baking times may vary.

Great job for publishing such a beneficial web site. Your web log isn’t only useful but it is additionally really creative too. There tend to be not many people who can certainly write not so simple posts that artistically. Continue the nice writing

I havent baked these yet, but I formed the patties and stuck'em in the freezer for later. But judging from the licked batter bowl, tastes pretty damn good. ;)b Super easy too


I've made these again, only instead of raisins I've used orange-flavored dark chocolate chunks (i.e. a chopped up chocolate bar); instead of tea water, I used orange juice; and instead of a diced apple, I added a diced mango.  Equally good, but much sweeter.
