Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Recipe courtesy of From My Bowl


Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana

  • 1 1/2 cups (150 g) rolled oats

  • 2 tbsp applesauce (unsweetened)

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • 1/3 cup (35 g) chopped nuts

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (Optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Peel the banana and mash with a fork until it forms a paste.

  2. Next, add 1/2 cup of the oats to a blender and process for 30 seconds, or until a fine flour forms. Add in the oat flour, remaining oatmeal, applesauce, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and maple syrup. Mix until everything is evenly incorporated, then fold the chopped nuts into the batter.

  3. Use batter to form 6 even cookies, then press each cookie onto the tray – they will not spread out in the oven, so shape them how you’d like them to be. Bake for 15-18 minutes, then remove from the oven and transfer to a baking rack to let cool completely.

  4. Enjoy!
