These are great little cookies that are more like oatmeal in cookie form so you could technically have them for breakfast ;) They're also great for a snack and are sweet enough to enjoy as a dessert! 

These are yummy, easy to make and without any sugar, dairy or gluten … you just might be able to get away with calling them healthy! 

Here's to happy and healthy baking!

Average Time: 35 minutes

Yields: 12-14 cookies

Ingredients

3 ripe bananas
2 cups oats (make sure they are gluten free if you have a sensitivity)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup almond milk
1/3 cup applesauce
2 Tbsp peanut butter
2 Tbsp flax seeds
1 tsp cinnamon

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 F

2. Peel bananas and then using a large fork mash in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients until well mixed (should resemble the consistency of cookie dough).
