A low-sugar cookie for breakfast on the go. I like to make several portions of the dry ingredients all at one time and store in plastic bags for easy assembly when needed. Store in the refrigerator.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Grind 2 1/4 cups oats in a food processor to yield 2 cups ground oats. Add walnuts, raisins, flax seeds, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Stir in remaining 1 cup oats. Stir thoroughly with a spoon, but do not grind further.

  • Make a well in the center of the oat mixture. Add bananas, eggs, applesauce, honey, and vanilla extract. Mash together and stir in oat mixture. Drop tablespoonfuls of the cookie dough on the baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are set, about 14 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute sweetened dried cranberries (such as Craisins(R)) for the raisins if preferred.

Due to the lack of fat, the cookies will remain somewhat flat and may burn without the parchment paper.

This is a great core recipe! I didn t have honey and prefer a sweeter cookie so I added 3/4 cup brown sugar and also increased the salt to 1 tsp. I needed a nut-free version so I added mini chocolate chips instead. I baked them for 10 minutes and they still set nicely but stayed chewy. Will be making again! Read More

These cookies are definitely not sweet--and that's not a bad thing in my opinion as I do not like overly sweet anything. With that said I felt that these could almost be bland. Their saving grace was the addition of raisins and walnuts that give you a little pop of flavor when you bite into them. If I were to make these again I think they could really benefit from the addition of a little fat--1-2 tbsps of butter or oil would do the trick. Also a bit more spices maple syrup in place of honey and maybe even some shredded coconut would add a bit more flavor. These cookies also stay EXACTLY how they go into the oven--no spreading at all. After the first batch I pressed them flat before baking and much prefer them that way. Overall not bad but I would adjust more to suit my family's tastes. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Delightful! Just what I was looking for! Was looking for a recipe using bananas and applesauce something other than banana nut bread. This is it! Will be great for breakfast with yogurt & tea or an afternoon snack =) I used 1/3c of frozen blueberries instead of raisins and I had 3 ripe bananas that needed to be used. Read More

I didn’t have walnuts. I added about 1/4 c sweetened coconut, and about 2T coconut oil, and about 1-2T maple syrup since my honey was low. Read More
