After School Fruity Weetabix Cookies Recipe

 

I spotted a recipe for Weetabix Cookies over on the Weetabix Instagram. My three love Weetabix (of the chocolate variety) and I had all of the ingredients in the house so thought I would give them a go with a few little changes. 

90% of the time I try to include some kind of fruit / veg into the kids as part of their after-school snack and these seemed ideal. 

Scroll to the middle of the post for ingredients and method. 


After School Fruity Weetabix Cookies Recipe


These cookies are honestly so easy to make - you basically, chuck everything into a bowl, combine and roll into little cookie balls which take less than 20 minutes to bake. The recipe is quite flexible too - as long - add other types of fruit if you fancy, it is good to experiment. 


I was worried the cookies would be really dry but they are the opposite - they have a soft consistancy and taste really fruity. Saying that though, they are best enjoyed with a glass of milk - but all cookies are! 








Ingredients (makes 10 cookies)

2 Chocolate Weetabix  
1 Tbsp Porridge Oats
150g Self Raising Flour
1 Tsp Sweet Ground Cinnamon 
2 Small Handfuls of Blueberries
1 Large Red Apple 
2 Ripe Bananas
1 Egg


Method

1 - Crush the weetabix into a bowl, add the oats, self raising flower and cinnamon. Stir until combined. 

2 - Grate the apple into the mixture, then crush two bananas and add to the bowl. 

3 - Add a beaten egg and stir all of the ingredients until combined. If the mixture is a little too wet to handle, add a little extra flour. 

4 - Make small dough balls from the cookie mix, flatten and add to a lined baking tray. You should get around 10 cookies from the mix. 

5 - Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for 17 minutes. Cool on a baking rack - serve warm or cool with a glass of milk. 

The apple and banana are the basic fruit you need in these but you can add any type of berry - I think raspberries would work really well. Just don't add too many. You can also use plain Weetabix if you prefer. 


I won't lie, these do not rival chocolate chip cookies in taste but they are nice as a healthier alternative after school and a way to get a little more fruit and fibre into the kids. They are not dry - they have a soft texture and they taste nice and fruity. The kids enjoyed them which is the main thing. 

If your kids are in a rush in the mornings, you can make in advance and they make a nice breakfast alternative no prep needed. A good grab-and-go option with a yoghurt drink.
