These super light, whole grain banana oat cookies are great any time of day!
- 2 cups whole wheat flour (I used white whole wheat flour)
- 1 cup oats (I used old fashioned oats)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 cup applesauce
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375.
- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
- In a separate-sized medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the mashed bananas, applesauce, honey and vanilla and stir well to combine.
- Add the wet ingredient to the dry and mix to combine. Don’t overmix.
- Add the mini chocolate chips, if using. (Or you can divide the batter and stir chocolate chips into half.)
- Place a spoonful of dough onto a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat.
- Bake at 375 for 15 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
- Remove from tray and allow to cool (on the parchment paper or on some wax paper).
- Once cooled, store in the fridge. They also freeze great - just throw in a labeled freezer bag once they are cooled.
