Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

What would we do without Pinterest? I recently came across this AMAZING recipe and I have made 2 batches of this super delicious cookies in less than 4 days! So I decided to link this up at the Dog Days of Winter Make It Linky Party. Did I mention that they are actually healthy??? Oh yeah... and I had to make 2 batches because I devoured them before I got to take any pictures of the finished product! Trust me and make these ASAP!

Of course, I like to mix it up a bit but here is the original recipe that I pinned.

Ingredients:
2 cups of Oatmeal (uncooked)
3 ripe bananas (mashed with fork)
1 1/2 cups of applesauce
1 small package of raisins
1 splash of vanilla
Cinnamon to taste

Optional:
1 spoonful of Peanut Butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup nuts or dried fruit of choice

Yes! This is really all that you need!


Preheat heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together vanilla, cinnamon, applesauce and bananas. 
Blend applesauce mixture with all other ingredients & let sit for 10 minutes.
Scoop 'dough' onto lightly greased cookie sheet. I opted to scoop it into muffin tins for better portion control on batch number 2!
Bake for about 25 minutes.
Remove from oven. Store in a covered container when completely cool.




Bananas all mashed

Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes 

All scooped into our muffin tins

All cooked and ready to eat! 

 Grab them quick before they are gone!

 I love that it tastes like a yummy bowl of oatmeal that I can eat on the go!

  3. Hi Nikki!

    So glad to hear that you like my breakfast cookies! They are a favorite around here. I make a batch about every 3 days. We go through them really fast around here, too. I love your idea of baking them in the muffin cups. I'll have to try that with the next batch.

    I've posted lots of other b/c flavor recipes that you might like too. Check them out when you get a chance.:)

    Thanks for sharing my cookies with your readers ~
    Cheers!
