These cookies may be lower in sugar than the average cookie but they still taste great.

Difficulty: Easy

Serves: 40 cookies


  • Margarine – 170g
  • Light brown sugar – 100g
  • Mashed banana (the riper the better) – 2 whole
  • Beaten egg – 2 each
  • Self raising flour – 230g
  • Cinnamon – 2tsp
  • Porridge oats – 110g
  • Sultanas – 340g


  1. Mix the margarine and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the mashed banana and mix well into the margarine and sugar.
  3. Add the beaten egg and mix well.
  4. Slowly add the rest of the dry ingredients to the mixture a little at a time.
  5. Using a dessert spoon, drop a spoonful of the mixture onto a suitable baking tray making sure there is enough room for the mix to spread and rise slightly.

  7. Allow to cool before serving.

Tip : this is a great recipe for using up over ripe bananas as the riper they get the sweeter they get!
