Ok, before I start, when I say sugar free on this occasion I mean there is no added sugar, syrup or honey. Because they are made with fruit there is of course naturally occurring sugars.

My monster hates porridge I have tried adding all sorts to it but just like his mama, he still hates it. So I needed a quick and easy breakfast alternative. Because he is still under 12 months I couldn’t use honey, but after playing around with quantities I have finally found our perfect mix, as approved by baby….oh and me, cos I keep stealing them…opps!


  • 150g oats
  • 1 tablespoon of desiccated coconut
  • 50g butter
  • 2 bananas
  • 5 pitted dates
  • 4 tablespoons of apple juice.


Pre-heat the oven to 180. Line a small baking dish with baking paper. In a mixing bowl combine the oats and the coconut. Then using a food processor or a hand blender, blitz the banana, dates, butter and apple juice, until you have a sticky mixture. Add this to the oats and coconut and mix well, so that everything is coated. Spoon into the baking dish and pop in the oven for 20 minutes or until the edges start to brown.

When cooked remove from the baking tray and allow to cool before cutting into your desired size.

Keep in the fridge for up to 3 days or wrap individually and freeze.
