Fuel Your Future is an adolescent food literacy program funded by the Western Australian Department of Health.

It’s run by Diabetes WA and Foodbank WA and is one of the programs I do the marketing for. You can check out its pretty website and read up on it further at www.fuelyourfuture.com.au

The reason I wanted to bring it to your attention (aside from the fact that it’s an amazing program) is because of the banana oat cookies which feature on their website.

They have fast become my go to snack and are super easy to make, and yummy to eat.

I’ve included the recipe below and recommend you check out the rest of the site for some other awesome and easy recipes. The nachos (made using flat bread) and the chocolate dipping sauce (made with yoghurt) are other favourites of mine.



  • 2 bananas, peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon (tsp) cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Mash the bananas with a fork in a large bowl.

2. Add rolled oats, coconut, honey, cinnamon and olive oil to the bowl.

3. Add chocolate chips.

4. Mix ingredients together.

5. Grab a tablespoon of mixture and squeeze together in hands.

6. Place onto baking tray and flatten to make cookies.

7. Place in oven. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden (watch that they don’t burn).
