We are now half-way through packing boxes in our rented house and our new home is a gutted and empty shell. And we need to get through the exam season before we can finally move to our new home. It is time for some healthy but homely cooking to relax and sustain us, I haven't yet packed the baking sheets. I tried these healthy home-baked cookies for the first time. No sugar, no raising agents yet really yummy, a small miracle I'm sure you agree!

1 1/2 cups of porridge oats
1 cup of desiccated coconut
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of mixed spice
3/4 of a cup of ground almonds
1 cup of raisins

3 ripe mashed bananas
4 tablespoons of healthy oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 175°C
2. Line baking sheet with baking parchment.
3. Combine the dry ingredients then mix in the wet ingredients thoroughly.
4. Press the mixture into biscuit cutters. I used a large love heart.

5. Bake for 20 minutes until the edges are golden. Leave to cool on the tray and then transfer onto a plate.

Now hoping for the larger miracle of a home with electricity and plumbing in time.
