Don't forget to comment and let me know whether you liked this healthy oatmeal cookie recipe or not! I think one acquires the taste for them after the first one sets into your palate. Our little plate of cookies disappeared fast, so the kids liked it.
The bananas and applesauce moisten the oatmeal cookie dough!
Make sure to follow the recipe exactly even if using a non-stick tray.
Our first cookie felt kind of strange to us. These healthy oatmeal cookies do have a different texture and taste kind of like a mini health bar, but the flavor they leave in your mouth is incredible and they actually make you feel full quicker than other cookies.
Healthy Oatmeal Cookies Recipe* I used all organic products for this recipe!
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups oatmeal
1/3 cup applesauce
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips*
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
* You can use carob chips or cacao chips instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Form into balls and place onto greased cookie sheet (or line with parchment paper for easy cleanup). With the back of a spoon, gently flatten cookie balls. Bake 15-20 minutes.
(Note: Remember, you can actually get all of these ingredients as organic / natural products)
