Applesauce Oat Cookies

It's apple harvest time, which means applesauce time for us, and this Applesauce Oat Cookie is a real winner. Subtly sweet and chewy, we love it as a dessert or even for breakfast with fresh fruit.

Applesauce Oat Cookies

  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax in 5 tablespoons water)
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup almonds, chopped
  • ¾ cup applesauce
  • ½ cup date paste (see recipe below)
  • ¼ cup filtered water
  • 2 cups rolled oats          

In a small bowl, add ground flax to water and stir well. Set in fridge for 10-15 minutes.

In a large bowl, mash the banana and then add the raisins, nuts, applesauce, date paste, stevia, water and mix well.

Add the oats and flax eggs and mix thoroughly.

Drop 2-4 tablespoon size dollops of batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet and flatten to form a nice round cookie.

Bake at 350º for 25-30 minutes until cookies are golden brown.

If you would like to make bars, pour the batter into a parchment paper lined 8” x 12” baking dish and flatten. Bake at 350º 30 to 40 minutes until the bars are golden brown. Cut in desired sizes.

Date Paste

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 3/4 cup filtered water

Add dates and water to a blender and blend on high until smooth, 60-90 seconds.
