Banana Oatmeal Health Cookies

Submitted by: BOOKSANDBIKES

Introduction

Found this recipe on a website. It is wheat-free, has no added sweeteners, no butter, no oil, no eggs. It is very basic, so you could dress it up with dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, or a drizzle of honey. My boys love them. They are NOT a traditional cookie, so if you are looking for a dessert cookie this is not it. This is a great "health" cookie that is all natural and could be used as a snack or as a homemade version of a cereal bar. Found this recipe on a website.

Ingredients

    2 cups mashed, ripe bananas
    4 cups of plain, quick-cooking oatmeal
    1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
    1/2 cup of applesauce
    cinnamon to taste (about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon)
    Pam or other cooking spray for your cookie sheets

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until everthing is uniformly moist.
3. Drop dough by tablespoonsfuls on a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam or other type cooking spray.
4. Flatten to desired cookie thickness.
5. Bake for 10 minutes (or up to 15 minutes for a denser, crisper cookie).
6. Eat warm or after cooking
7. Store in an airtight container, preferably in the fridge. Freeze some if you aren't going to use them all in two-three days.

Yields approximately 40 cookies. If you make more than 40 from one batch, each will have fewer calories. If you make less than 40 then each cookie is going to have more calories.

Number of Servings: 40
