  1. Into a bowl, chop the bananas and mash it with a fork or a masher, until it becomes a puree and set it aside.

Alternative Ingredient Substitutes

Maple Syrup: This recipe used maple syrup as its sweetener. You could substitute the maple syrup with any other sweetener syrup of your choice. Some alternatives are honey, date syrup, jaggery syrup etc.

Coconut Milk: I’ve used coconut milk in this recipe, as my choice of milk. You could use any other milk of your choice like cow’s milk (if not vegan) or other plant-based milks like almond milk, rice milk, soy milk, cashewnut milk, oat milk etc., (if vegan), in the same proportions.

Rolled Oats: This recipe is made using rolled oats. But it can be substituted with either quick oats or even steel-cut oats, whichever you’d prefer, in the same quantity.

Apples: I’ve used apples as my choice of fruit in this recipe. You can even use any other fruits like pears, blueberries, strawberries, green apples etc.

Recipe Additions

Dry Fruits and Nuts: This recipe doesn’t use any dry fruits and nuts, but you could add in some chopped dry fruits and nuts of your choice (maybe a tablespoon would suffice), for that extra crunch.


  • I have chopped the apple along with its skin on. If you wish to remove the skin before chopping the apple you could do so. Nevertheless, eating the apple with the skin on is recommended because of its nutritional value and rich fibre content.
