Johannesburg’s current heatwave is an absolute annihilator for bananas. I usually peel and freeze them for smoothies once they begin to over-ripen, but this time I thought I’d give these quick oat and banana cookies a bash.
There’s something about Nutella that induces a Pavlovian reaction at its very mention. It’s almost sacrosanct. So much so that my little concoction may be considered a blasphemy. My version incorporates walnuts and is influenced by the toffee-notes in the agave nectar I used.
