  • 6 Ingredients


I add sultanas as well as my son loves them. You could add almost any dried fruit or nut to this recipe.

Ingredients (makes 36 cookies)

  • 2 1/2 cups Quick Oats
  • 1/3 cup Honey
  • 3 Ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup Apple Sauce
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, ground


  1. Preheat oven to 180deg
  2. Mix all ingredients together and rest for 15 minutes
  3. Drop teaspoon size balls onto baking tray
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until brown


I never have Apple Sauce in the pantry so instead I cut an apple into bite size pieces and put it into a small saucepan with a little water on very low heat. Once the apple is soft, I mash it up and use that in the mix instead. I also always have ripe bananas in the freezer so I defrost them if I don't have any fresh ones to use. Super easy, great one to get the kids involved. I store them in an air tight container in the fridge. My 18 month old son loves them, especially after swimming.

  • A great snack for those times needed. Not sure I would use them as breakfast unless in a hurry somewhere.


  • I love your cookies,mum use to make a similar batch! Thanks!


  • These look delicious! Thanks for sharing!


  • I made these and added some dried apricots because I have an abundance of them, I made them in a tray and cut them whilst warm, so they ended up like muesli bars, and they are incredibly popular. love them,

  • This would be great as a quick breakfast or morning tea snack.


  • These would be popular with my kids.
