Banana Oat Cookies!!! Yum ;)

Hey Beautiful People!

I made some scrumptious Banana Oat Cookies today so I thought I'd share the recipe! They are SO easy to make and they are great as a snack, after dinner dessert, or even an on-the-go breakfast if you are running out the door!  These Banana Oat Cookies are loaded with fiber so not only are they tasty, they are healthy too! Here is the recipe:


  • 3 ripe bananas (mashed)
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup sliced dried apricot (any dried fruit can work!)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • add cinnamon (to taste) 
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix mashed bananas, rolled oats, dried fruit, applesauce, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a large bowl
  • Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes
  • Scoop mixture into balls and press them down onto a cookie sheet greased with cooking spray
  • Bake for 20 minutes
  • Let cool for 5 minutes and ENJOY!
They came out great! I love cinnamon so I use it freely.  You could also try some pumpkin spice or nutmeg to spruce them up a bit...Maybe even some mini chocolate chips! Next time, I'm going to try them with dried blueberries. YUM ;)

Yours in health,
