Banana Oat Cookies

What You'll Need

· 1 ripe banana
· 1 ½ cups ONLY OATS rolled oats divided
· 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
· 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
· 1 tsp baking powder
· ½ tsp cinnamon
· ½ tsp salt
· 1/3 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 350F

2. Peel the ripe banana and break it off into “chunks” in a medium bowl

3. Mash the banana with a fork until it forms a paste

4. Add ½ cup of the ONLY OATS Rolled Oats to a blender and process for 30 seconds, or until a fine flour forms

5. Add the oat flour, remaining oatmeal, applesauce, optional maple syrup, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt to the bowl with the banana

6. Mix until everything is evenly incorporated

7. Fold the chopped walnuts into the batter, then line or grease a baking tray

8. Use around 3 tbsp of batter to form a “cookie”, 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!

9. Bake for 15 minutes, flip, then bake for an additional 5-7 minutes

10. Once cool, store in a loosely covered container at room temperature for up to 5 days. You can also freeze these and reheat as needed
