Healthy Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies


  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup pure honey
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 and 1/2 cups whole quick oats
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries or coarsely chopped fresh cranberries optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In medium-sized bowl, mash bananas. Add applesauce, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
  3. Add oats and stir well. Fold in blueberries or cranberries. Allow cookie dough to sit for 5 to 10 minutes so the oats can soak up the excess liquid.
  4. On a baking sheet, lightly spray with olive oil cooking oil or line with silicon baking liners and drop large spoonfuls of cookie dough (about 1/4 cup size) an inch apart.
  5. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until slightly golden brown.
