Last Saturday Becki disappeared into the kitchen. A short while later the most delicious smells started wafting round the house, but she wouldn’t let us know quite what was going on.

I think this is what she’d done…


  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp runny honey
  • 200g porridge oats
  • 60g chopped mixed nuts
  • 75g chopped dates
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Mix everything together, press into a lined baking tin (approx. 20 by 15 cm), and bake at 180C for about 30 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting and eating!
