Banana & Oatmeal Night Time Cookies

Banana  & Oatmeal Night Time Cookies

Nothing better I think than curling up on the sofa on a wintery night under my blankie as I call it with either a box of chocolates and glass of wine or my cookies and cup of hot milk! These are perfect to go with the latter, you know when you get those last minute munchies, perfect to fill one’s tummy and help one sleep well.

  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
