This is an adaptation of Messy Cook's Fantabulous Oatmeal Applesauce cookies. These are kind of soft but dense. They're a nice replacement for breakfast bars.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mash bananas in large measuring cup. There should be just shy of 1 cup of mashed banana - add a little extra apple sauce if you don't have enough banana. Stir in apple sauce, honey, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, oats, baking soda, and spices. Add wet stuff and stir until incorporated. Fold in zest, walnuts, and fruit.
  3. Scoop onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. (I use an ice cream scoop.) Press them a little to flatten slightly. Bake about 15 minutes.
