After reading previous comments, I doubled the amount of ingredients. I made some unsweetened apple sauce and substituted for the bananas and sugar. I also added more dried fruit as well as chopped nuts and seeds. I think they taste great and my 18-month-old also loves them. Great way to get lots of goodness in her without any added sugar.

My family absolutely loved these and it is such a quick recipe to do. Great for my son's lunch box and a sneaky way to get in the additional fruit in that he needs. Next time I will try to add raisins, nuts (not for school) and seeds. A well worth five star recipe!

Tried this out last evening with a few modifications.
I heated a tablespoon of honey in a saucepan and melted the sugar in it before adding it to the oats and banana. I used chopped dates and some walnuts instead of apricots. I did add in extra oats and it came out delicious gooey but firm.

These quantities make a ridiculously small amount. I doubled the oats and the sugar and used one large banana and still only got 8 half-decent sized pieces. Also the oven needs to be hotter. Next time I'll triple the oats and maybe use 1 1/2 bananas. They were very nice though, soft and gooey and delicious.

I havent had a chance to try these yet but as a suggestion you could maybe use some pureed dates or pureed apple instead of the banana if you don't like banana? As that should also do the job of binding it all together! Looks like a good recipe though, I'm going to try it.

I loved the idea of using banana for sweetness instead of so much sugar but there was a bit too much banana in these for our liking and I found that they didn't stick together very well. Next time I think I'll try using half a banana and a bit more sugar.
