Vegan Banana Trail Mix Cakies

These cakies are so called as they sit somewhere between a cookie and a little cake. Fear not though intrepid cake adventurer, for I shall spare you any sort of Jaffa Cake style debate. However you wish to classify these naughty treats, the one thing that is indisputable is that they are VERY moreish. Oh and I did I mention they are also entirely vegan? ;-)

Prep time: 15 Mins (Plus 60 Mins chilling time)
Baking time: 13-15 Mins
100g Coconut Oil (Melted gently)
175g Light Muscovado Sugar
1 Large Ripe Banana (Mashed)
1tsp Vanilla Extract
150g Plain Flour
1tsp Baking Powder
250g Fruit and Nut Trail Mix

If you're ready, then let's begin. Grab a large mixing bowl and pour in the coconut oil. Add the sugar, banana and vanilla extract, then mix to combine. Add the flour and baking powder, then mix to a sticky dough. Fold through the trail mix, then cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for 60 mins.

Once the dough has chilled it's ready to cakify, so preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and line two large flat baking trays with baking paper. Take your dough from the fridge and divide into 18 little balls. Place each evenly spaced apart on your baking trays, then bake in the centre of the oven for around 13-15 minutes. By this time they should have spread, are golden brown and just darkening at the edges.

When you are happy the cakies are baked remove from the oven and leave to cool for 30 mins on the tray. Peel each carefully from the baking paper and leave to cool entirely. They are now ready to enjoy. X
