    Healthy Banana Cookies


    Recipe Description
    These make a really good, healthy treat! They are a cross between cookies and granola bars. My kids love them as a treat, I'm not going to tell them that they are pretty healthy!
    Preparation Steps:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash bananas.
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    30 minutes
    Ingredients:
    3 bananas, mashed
    2 cups uncooked oatmeal
    1/3 cup applesauce
    Serves:
    36 cookies
    Directions:
    In medium bowl, stir together mashed bananas, oatmeal, applesauce and if desired, a spash of vanilla. Mix well, let sit for 15 minutes. Drop by spoonful onto greased cookies sheet. They will not spread like flour cookies, so I pushed them flat with a fork (much like you do with peanut butter cookies). Bake for 20 minutes.

    You can also add dried fruit, for different tastes!

    Health info per cookie:
    23 calories
    .175 grams of fat
    5 carbs
    .5 grams of protein

    Pretty good for cookies!

    Interesting recipe! My kids love banana muffins, but this is a great twist on what to do with my leftover bananas!!!

    Wow, I made these as an experiment, and they made a great afternoon snack that satisfied a sweet craving and still just enough nutrition to get me through the afternoon. I added raisins to mine. Thank you!

    They sound delicious!! I will have to get some applesauce (already used up the last of my HM), but I will definitely give these a try.

    These sound great! I've had a few bananas lounging around the freezer and didn't want to make banana bread again, these are going to be a welcome change.

    I just bought bananas that are riper than they looked, and I've been wondering what to do with them. I need to pick up some oatmeal, but I may do that on the way home from work and try them tomorrow.

    Thanks!

    Sounds good and probably doesn't have TOO many calories. I saved it as a Favorite. When I get some bananas I will make them. I have some dehydrated cranberries (craisins). I think I will add a few.
