Sugar-free, flour-free oatmeal banana cookies, found recipe on facebook, thanks Don Colbert.
- 3 ripe bananas (mashed)
- 1⁄3 cup organic no-sugar-added applesauce
- 2 cups oats
- 1⁄4 cup almond milk
- 1⁄2 cup raisins (optional)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Mix all ingredients, drop by the tablespoonful onto cookie sheet, bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
After seeing this recipe shared by everyone on Facebook, I was hoping there was some baking magic that would make this odd list of ingredients into a cookie. I excitedly added the ingredients to my shopping list. With a smile of anticipation I mixed up the simple recipe. I could barely wait for them to cool before chomping into one. Sadly, no, these taste exactly like you think they would. Gummy and bland. They're not terrible, but two 5 year olds just told me, "No, thank you" when I offered them "cookies".
#1 Almond milk is far from sugar free. #2 they are very bland and disappointing.
I had some bananas I needed to use so I made these. Trying to find healthy things for the kids. I would think throwing in an egg and baking powder wouldn't hurt next time. Good for kids running out the door rushing in the morning. More like a soft granola breakfast bar consistency than a cookie.
