Oaty Banana Biscuits

Oaty biscuits on place 2A perfect back-to-school lunchbox snack! After a friend gave me the idea, I now make these all the time for snacks for Isla (and me and Glenn!) as they are so easy and quick to make and brilliant to pop into the bag to take out and about. They are naturally sweet and give you a good energy boost. Hope you enjoy! And do let us know if you have any healthy recipes you’d like to share with us.



Basic ingredients:

2 ripe bananas

1 cup oats

Add-ins of your choice:

¼ cup chopped nuts (e.g. almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts)

¼ cup seeds (e.g. pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds)

¼ cup raisins/sultanas (or other dried fruit, chopped)

Cacao nibs

1 teaspoon cinnamon or mixed spice


The best thing about these is that you can use whatever you have in the cupboard as long as you have the bananas and oats. I usually use whatever nuts, seeds and dried fruit I have in and sometimes add cacao nibs too, but if you or your kids don’t like seeds, for example, just miss them out!

  • Mash the bananas
  • Add the nuts, seeds, raisins etc and mix together.
  • Mix in the oats.
  • Use a dessert spoon to dollop the mixture onto a baking tray (greased or lined) and shape roughly into cookies approx. 1-2 cm thick. This quantity of mixture makes about 12.
  • Bake at 180°C for about 20 minutes, until just browning and firm to touch. The outside will be a little bit crunchy but they should still be soft on the inside.
