  4. Add the banana mixture to the butter/sugar mixture and whisk until combined

  5. In a separate bowl, combine the sifted flour, oats, bicarbonate soda, baking powder, salt, corn flour and cinnamon. The add to the wet ingredients- stir with a spoon or use your hands if it needs some extra work.

  6. If the mixture is looking too think then add a bit of plant milk but it should be looking like a cookie dough mixture now.

  7. Line a baking tray with baking paper then use a ice cream scoop to scoop the mixture into balls (leaving enough space between each cookie to expand)

  8. Press down the cookie with a spoon to flatten slightly (around 1-1.5cm thick). Slice the remaining half banana that was leftover from step 3 and place on top of each cookie
