So, obviously, this blog is NOT about the photography. I like to take a snapshot of things with my iPhone when I remember to do so, but that’s it. In this case I was too lazy to even try to make it look good on a plate! Anyway, these are super simple and healthy cookies that make a great snack, especially for kids. Plus, they are so adaptable. I’ve seen a bunch of recipes that are similar to this, so I know you can take it in a lot of different directions. But now we know they actually turn out!
3 ripe, mashed bananas
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups regular oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
dried fruit – whichever kind and however much you want (I used chopped up dried apricots and cranberries sweetened with apple juice instead of sugar)
Preheat oven to 350. Then, combine everything in a mixing bowl by hand. Put spoonfuls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (in the shape you want them to be, because they don’t spread out as they bake). Bake for 15-20 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
