Ginger biscuits with oats and banana

Ginger and oat biscuits with lots of fiber

Biscuits do not have to be loaded with sugar and unhealthy fat. They can taste good anyway. They are quite rich in fiber and are spiced with a big measure of ginger. They are not very sweet, so if you have a sweet tooth you can add a teaspoon of syrup or honey. If you don’t like ginger you can reduce the amount, or leave it out all together. If you love ginger, use fresh, it’s much nicer than dried. Raisins can be swapped for any other dried fruit. The biscuits are great energisers if you are going for a hike.
Cooking time: 30 minutes, including a paus.
