Ginger Oat Cookies (no White Sugar Added)
Recipe was posted in the Carbo Canteen at www.coolrunning.com. I have made both the banana and the pumpkin versions.
- Ready In:
- 2 bananas (OR 2/3 cup canned pumpkin and 1/2 cup applesauce)
- 1⁄2 cup molasses
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 cups oats
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
- Mix all ingredients, drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350F 10-15 minutes.
- You can add nuts and raisins too.
- For pan cookies, I use a greased 9" x 9" pan and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350°F.

I made the pumpkin version and it turned out pretty well, considering there is no oil or white sugar added. I made it in a 9" x 9" pan, and they turned out very moist with a nice, chewy texture. My only critique is that I felt the bars could use a little more flavor, like a kick of something - more spices perhaps. Other than that, pretty good for such a healthy recipe.
WOW! These just came out of the oven...oh my! My kids are gobbling them up and since they are so healthy...no need to stop them. I don't eat flour or processed sugar, so I didn't use the 1 cup of flour. I ground up steel cut oats in my food processor until it got flour-looking and added the remaining 2 c of oats, so there are a ton of oats in these little babies. 5 stars, hands down!
Followed the banana version of the recipe, but I don't love how they taste, but really I want to try this recipe again following the suggestions of adding dried fruit (also want to try precooking the oats too).<br/><br/>Right now I usually eat one for breakfast topped with vanilla or blueberry yogurt. Also have been giving pieces to my doggie as treats and he's loving it.<br/><br/>Thanks for the no-fuss recipe, it's nice to see ones that have such healthy ingredients and lots of room to experiment :)
