Wanted:a recipe for cookies/biscuits, full of goodness, yet attractive to teenage boys

My sporty DSs are always starving when they come in. I'd like to make cookies/biscuits they can grab a handful of when they arrive home, and maybe take with them to training etc. But I don't want to just give them a pile of sugar, so need a recipe that's delicious but with some goodness in. If the mixture, or finished item, freezed well that would be a real bonus. Any ideas?

Possibly something quite oaty would help fill them up. Healthy recipe here

I use this but with half the sugar and sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds thrown in. They freeze well too.

What about these Pina colada cookies? They don't contain refined sugar (or any alcohol!). They go down well in our household as they are fruity and tasty.
Alternatively, these banana banana biscuits are also great but without the refined sugar or any hidden nasties. Easy to make and freeze well too. Hope that's helpful- I'm always on the lookout for wholesome and sweet snacks.

Have just put these flapjacks in the oven will report back later and let you know how they turned out. Think I got the link from a previous MN post.
