Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Pretty regularly, people share recipes on Facebook. Recently, there was a recipe circulating for banana oatmeal breakfast cookies. With no added sugar and an ingredient list that looked more healthy than most, I was inspired to try making these cookies. The recipe is simple:

Ingredients

  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, optional

Recipe Changes

The following were some changes to suit the ingredients in our kitchen. Instead of applesauce we used cinnamon applesauce and then a couple pinches of ground cinnamon instead of the called for teaspoon. Not a fan of walnuts so these were excluded, next time I may use sunflowers or cashews. I did use just under 1/2 cups of mini chocolate chips.

Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.
  3. Place heaping tablespoons on a parchment-lined pan and gently press with a fork.
  4. Bake 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.
  5. Store in the refrigerator up to 4 days.

Approximately 95 calories per cookie.

Taste Test

The recipe reminded me a lot of mini banana breads. I was not a fan of the chocolate chips in the recipe, but my daughter liked them quite a bit and took them all to school, where they were devoured. There were some in the family who thought they were okay, but they did have seconds, as well.

Overall, these cookies were a 3.5-star cookie for us (out of a possible 5 stars). Next time we make them, I plan to update the recipe by removing the chocolate chips and adding sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, and a light orange zest. Hope to hear your comments.

        They went very quickly in my house, after sealing a hardwood floor tomorrow I can't get to half my projects. I may make the modified version tomorrow. I hope you try the recipe!
