Rainy, wet, weekends seem to suggest baking to me, and now to the rest of my family too.
We made eggless monkey cookies filling the house with a warm and sweet aroma.
2 over ripe bananas - mashed well
1.5 cup unbleached self raising flour
1/2 cup fine semolina
1/2 cup unsalted vegetable margarine (I used Canola)
1 cup raw sugar
2 tablespoons peanuts, roughly powdered (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon, finely powdered
Heat the oven to 175 degrees C and, cover a cookie sheet with greaseproof paper.
Mix the vegetable margarine and raw sugar till fluffy.
Add in the mashed bananas into this mix.
Toss the peanuts and Cinnamon powder in and mix well. Slowly fold in the flour and semolina, and stir with a wooden spoon till well mixed.
Drop 1 teaspoon of the mixture at regular intervals on the cookie sheet, leaving space to expand in - between.
Bake for 12 - 15 minutes, checking if they are cooked through. Cool.
