Healthy Cookie Recipe

We tried a new healthy cookie recipe today.  They are gluten, dairy and egg free and only use natural sugars (except that I realized later that the dried fruit that I used had some added sugar- not much but still- check your labels!)

Jillian helped me make them - she loves helping in the kitchen!  


3 bananas
2 c. rolled oats
1/3 c. applesauce (or 1 packet of the squeeze kind!)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 c. dried fruit (we used cherries, cranberries and blueberries)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. flax seed meal
1 tbsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Using a fork, mash the bananas in a bowl. 

Stir in everything else! Mix batter well. 

Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. 

Bake for 20 minutes.
