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
- 1/3 cup date paste
- 1 dropper (16 drops) liquid stevia
- ¼ cup purified 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.
