Who would’ve thought something so decadent and delicious could come in at only 99 calories per cookie and ice cream sandwich? Madness! Well the new book from SuperFastDiet, The 3-Day Diet has you covered! These cookies are full of fibre, flavour and one of the most simple treat for the whole family to enjoy.

Ingredients:
2 large (very ripe) bananas
¾ cup (85g) oats (quick is preferred)
½ tsp pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons sugar-free dark chocolate baking chips

Method:
Slice one banana and place in a single layer on a tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Freeze for 2 hours, or until firm.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 degrees (160 degrees fan-forced). Line a large baking tray with non-stick baking paper.

Mash the remaining banana in a bowl. Then, stir in the oats, cinnamon, maple syrup and choc chips until well combined.

Spoon 1 tablespoon of the mixture onto the lined tray and shape it into a neat 5cm round cookie. Repeat for the remaining, to make 12 cookies in total.

Bake the cookies for 18-20 minutes until cooked and golden. Cool the cookies completely on the tray.

Blend the frozen banana in a small food processor until completely smooth and creamy. Sandwich the banana ice cream between two cookies and serve!

Notes:
These cookies don’t spread during baking so it’s important to shape them into nice flat rounds so they cook evenly.
The 5cm cookies will have a chewy centre. If you prefer a crisper cookie, then flatten it into 7cm rounds and bake for 16-18 minutes, or until golden and crisp.
1 large overripe banana = ¾ cup mash.
