You can make this recipe into muesli bars. Follow steps 1-3. Place mixture into a lined slice tray. Press to flatten with your fingers. Cook for 30 minutes. Cool in pan then slice.

This recipe can be frozen. Place frozen cookie in your child’s lunch box and it will defrost.

Use any dried fruit you like in place of the craisons, diced dried apricots work well.

You can also make these into bliss balls, just replace the oil with 1 teaspoon of cocoa and use only 2 bananas.  Mix and roll into balls. Instead of baking set and store in fridge.
