Please welcome some very special guests to the Abel & Cole kitchen, 4 year old twins, Hughie and Milo. They popped by to show us how easy it is to make banana macaroons. Oh and make sure your counter top is clean before starting in case the egg misses the bowl...

A quick and easy recipe. My mixture is always quite moist. I use a 1/3 cup as a mould and get 5 macaroons. Also lovely with some dark chocolate buttons mixed in - bounty style - delish!



Where am I going wrong? Mine are shockingly dry coconut blobby balls....





We adore these. So quick, simple and healthy.

Quick, simple and tasty way to use up ripe bananas. I used a few drops of vanilla essence instead of the pods. Delicious!



So quick & easy, I can make them in 5 mins & pop them in the oven whenever I'm cooking, feel like a healthy snack

Quick and Easy Peasy!


We love these! We used to use up the ripe bananas making muffins but now make these instead! No added sugar and fat is the reason we like these more!
