Healthy Banana Oats Cookies…Sugar Free, Butter Free & Oil Free

IMG_3426

Hello everyone. Sorry for missing in action for so long. My daughter started her Preschool today and I was super busy getting ready for the big day. I am so glad she thoroughly enjoyed her first day at school. There were lots of firsts for all of us and we are excited for the new beginnings. I really wish her the best in this new phase of life. πŸ™‚

School also means thinking what to pack for lunch everyday. I can’t believe I have reached that stage. I still remember asking my mom – what’s in lunch box tomorrow and then saying..No give me something different. Sigh..how life takes a full circle. Having said that, I am excited to try new recipes for her so if you have an interesting lunch box idea, do share in the comment below. Would love to try it out.

Speaking of lunch box and healthy treats, today I am sharing a very healthy cookie recipe with you. If you are looking for a healthy snack, this is it. These cookies have the natural sweetness of banana, the goodness of oats andΒ are free from any oil or butter. Best of all, they get ready in 15 minutes. So the next time, you see some ripe bananas lying round, make this delicious and healthy treat.

Here is how I made them:

Ingredients:

Ripe bananas – 2 (You can also use very ripe plantains instead)

Quick Oats – 1 cup

Baking powder – 1/2 tsp

Cinnamon powder – 1 tsp

Vanilla extract – 1 tsp

Raisins or chocolate chip – 1/4 cup

Method:

  1. Mash the bananas well and add in the rest of the ingredients till everything is well combined.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Scoop little balls of this mixture on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. You should get about 12 – 16 cookies based on the size.
  4. Let the cookies cool completely before storing them away in an air tight container. Enjoy your healthy snack.

So that is the super simple recipe of the healthiest cookies. These taste like the chewy cookies and not the crispy ones. You can also make these like a bar. Just put the whole mix in a baking dish together and cut into pieces when done.
Thanks for stopping by. Do let me know if you try this out.
I hope to see you again soon.
Love,
Ritu. πŸ™‚
