Dear beloved bakers,

First off, a heartfelt thank you for being here! Your enthusiasm for healthier alternatives in the baking world warms my heart. Today, I’m thrilled to share something special—a cookie recipe that’s as nutritious as it is delicious, completely devoid of sugar and flour. Yes, you read that right! For all my sweet-toothed friends looking for a guilt-free treat, this one’s for you!

Introduction

Imagine biting into a cookie that’s both chewy and satisfying, without any of the usual suspects like sugar or flour. These healthy cookies are packed with natural ingredients that not only satisfy your cravings but also fuel your body. Perfect for snack time, these are treats you can feel good about indulging in.

Ingredients

To whip up about 12 of these scrumptious cookies, you’ll need:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, or pecans work great!)
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit (think cranberries or raisins)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt

How to Make

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mash the bananas in a large bowl until smooth.
  3. Stir in the oats, applesauce, nuts, dried fruit, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  4. Spoon the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, forming each into a cookie shape.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are golden.
  6. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Helpful Tips

  • For best results, use ripe bananas as they are naturally sweeter and mash easily.
  • Let the cookie mixture sit for a few minutes after mixing; this allows the oats to soak up the flavors.

Substitutions/Variations

  • Nut-Free: Omit the nuts and add extra dried fruit or seeds like pumpkin or sunflower.
  • Extra Flavor: Incorporate a tablespoon of peanut butter or almond butter for a richer taste.
  • Chocolate Fix: Add a handful of sugar-free chocolate chips for those who want a bit of chocolate indulgence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use instant oats instead of rolled oats?

  • Yes, you can use instant oats, but the texture will be slightly different. Rolled oats provide a chewier texture.

Are these cookies gluten-free?

  • As long as you use gluten-free oats, these cookies are gluten-free.

Storage Instructions

Store your healthy cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. For longer storage, you can refrigerate them for up to 10 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
