22 cookies


  • 2 ½ cups rolled oats

  • 3 medium bananas, mashed

  • 4 ounces unsweetened applesauce

  • 5 tablespoons chia seeds (Optional)

  • ¼ cup skim milk

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar (Optional)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

  2. Combine oats, bananas, applesauce, chia seeds, milk, egg, cinnamon, agave, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Let cookie dough sit for 15 minutes.

  3. Scoop dough by teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are set and golden, about 18 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can add dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries, or apples. Also nuts such as almonds work great. This cookie is very versatile.

Feel free to use soy milk in place of skim. You can also use an egg substitute, if you prefer.

You can freeze these and pull out a few the night before to keep fresh.
