Banana & Oat Cookies - Clean Eating

With my slight change of diet, I started to miss my biscuits and chocolate, and I was wondering what I could do to curb those cravings. I was thinking of what alternatives I could use in the recipes, and then whilst scrolling Facebook, I saw a recipe that apparently has been around for years and years. It's so simple I had to try it.
Very simply Banana and Oats and that's it! No sugar, no flour.

So, as I had three small very very ripe bananas, it was a perfect recipe. People were commenting how delicious these were and that their grandmothers have been making these for years....so they must be good right ?? 
I mixed the three small bananas along with a Cup of Oats and a healed teaspoon of cinnamon. I used  Provena Gluten Free Oats It mixed really easily with a spoon, so there was no need to get the masher out.

Once mixed, I used a soup spoon to get a scoop, and then placed on a greased tray and made into circles. It's quite a sticky mix so it was easy to do. 

I put a scoop of chocolate spread on two for the kids. 
Cooked them at 185 degrees for roughly ten minutes.....keep your eye on them.
And.....dadahhhh.....super clean biscuits. 
Well...actually they taste like a uncooked cake mix, or uncooked flapjack mix, but not as nice. So, I won't say that these are delicious, but they sure did beat my cravings for biscuits! This little recipe needs a bit of work, as I'm wondering if I used less banana they may have been better and possibly less gooey.
Next time I do these, I'm going to add dark chocolate chips, or a nut paste to give them a better taste.
I do have to say that if you ruin them completely with the chocolate spread.....they taste really good!
