Tea Pu-erh Vanilla and Banana Oatmeal Cookies | A healthy snack
Few drinks are as healthy as tea, and Pu-Erh is at the top of the list. Pu-Erh goes through a special ripening process and due to the double fermentation of the tea leaves, it contains additional antioxidants. In traditional Chinese medicine it was considered a “healing tea” and mainly consumed by emperors. I wonder why?
Also known as red tea
It is recommended to drink Pu-erh, also known as red tea, all year round and gradually replace coffee with this healthy beverage.

Healthy snack to go for any time of the day
We all want to take care of ourselves a little bit more, exercise and eat healthy. When it comes to snacks, it is easy to succumb to the wide range of groceries in the supermarket. It´s ideal to choose unprocessed foods that are mainly based on vegetable ingredients. If you want to take a snack to the office or gym, it’s best to take it from home. If you have forgotten to put something in your bag, then buy fresh fruit, preferably already cut, with a natural yoghurt and nuts …
Healthy sweet snacks
On the subject of healthy snacks, we are presenting a recipe for delicious banana biscuits today – crispy on the outside and soft on the inside! In addition, you can use all the fruits that may not look so yummy anymore and thus kill two birds with one stone. Our banana cookies are ideal for any time of the day and are especially delicious with a cup of organic tea from Semper Tea: Pu-Erh Vanilla.
Here comes the recipe …
Recipe banana biscuits … sooo good
- a chopped banana
- 5 g vanilla sugar or vanilla essence
- 2 eggs
- 100 gr margarine
- 100 gr of flour
- 150 gr of oatmeal
- ½ sachet of yeast
- 2 apples
Cut the apples into small pieces. We like small pieces of apple in a biscuit, but if you want a finer consistency, you can also puree the apples in a blender.
Mix the banana, eggs, vanilla and margarine well. Then add the sifted flour, the oatmeal, the yeast and finally the apple pieces.
Shape the mass into cookies by hand – size as desired – and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200º for 15 minutes.
We sweetened our apple cookies a little. We put some dark chocolate from VANINI on top – they were delicious, but they also taste great without the chocolate.
Let them cool down and store them in a container. We couldn’t resist and immediately enjoyed a couple of freshly baked banana biscuits with an organic Pu-erh Vanilla tea from Semper Tea. Soooo good.
Pu erh tea preparation – hot or cold – a joy
Pu-erh tea is delicious hot or cold and the preparation is the same in both cases. Pour hot water (remove just before boiling point) over the teabag and let it steep for 3 minutes.
If you would like to drink it as iced tea, let it cool and then add ice cubes.
We recommend our post: Ice tea is a hot beverage trend in the hospitality industry
You can add lemon or ginger to the Pu-Erh Vanilla tea for extra vitamins and power.
Enjoy your cup of tea with freshly baked apple biscuits! And don’t forget, if you drink your Pu-erh tea as iced tea, it’s best to enjoy it within 24 hours of preparation to retain all its goodness and beautiful taste.
