No-Frills Cookies

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup finely chopped dates (use food processor or chop by hand)
  • 2 cups of porridge oats
  • 1/3 cup oil, e.g. rapeseed
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence.


Mix all the ingredients together.

Place on greaseproof paper and bake at gas mark 6/200F until light brown (about 20 minutes).

I use gluten free oats for this recipe for my household.
