I had a moment of experimentation today in the kitchen. A friend who suffers from gallstones and is on a lowfat, lowsugar diet wanted/craved something sweet. So I decided to have a bash at finding something even she can enjoy and after talking to her about what she could/couldn't include I have come up with the following.
100g Wholemeal flour - or Riceflour
1tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 chopped apple (peeled and cored)
2 mashed bananas
1 dsstsp dried milk
3 tbls olive oil
2 tbls honey (can be replaced by apple puree)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
put all the dry ingredients in a bowl including the chopped fruit, mash
up the bananas in a separate bowl and warm the oil and honey up on the
cooker - not too hot.
once the oil and honey are more liquid
add it and the banana to the dried mix and stir well.. you could add
linseed at this stage if you so wanted.
I put plain chocolate drops on the top, but you can ignore this one if you like.
Turn into a silicone baking tray and put in the oven at Gas Mark 5 for 30 mins..
Leave in the tray to cool before cutting into slices and enjoy.
These originally started out as cookies but I decided to carry on
experimenting and make it a tray bake but small drops on a tray would
probably be nice and would take a lot less cooking.
