This was one of those shared photos floating around on Facebook, so unfortunately I don't know the source of the original recipe. But it is great! These cookies are soft and chewy, slightly sweet and satisfying...perfect for a snack, breakfast, or to satisfy your sweet tooth! They are also super easy and quick (and I say that despite having to make 6 separate batches since I only own a toaster oven!). There is no added sugar, no gluten (provided you use certified GF oats), and virtually no fat (the only fat really comes from the almond milk, which works out to be less than 1/2 a gram!). Enjoy!
Banana Oat Bread Cookies
Makes about a dozen
3 mashed bananas (ripe)
1/3 cup apple sauce (no sugar added/natural)
2 cups gluten free oats (or use regular if you aren't sensitive)
1/4 cup almond milk, unsweetened
1/2 cup raisins (optional - I did not use)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix it all up in a bowl, plop on a cookie sheet (I greased mine with a coconut oil cooking spray, since the cookies have no fat to help grease) and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. That's it!
