3 mashed bananas (ripe)
1/3 cup apple sauce
2 cups oats
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup raisins or nuts
1 cup good dark chocolate chunks (Lily’s brand is my fave)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions :
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to preheat at 350°F (177°C).
Prepare the Wet Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas and apple sauce. Stir them together until they are well mixed.
Add Flavorings: To the banana and apple sauce mixture, add the vanilla extract and cinnamon. Mix these in thoroughly to distribute the flavors evenly.
Incorporate the Oats: Add the oats to the bowl. Stir them into the mixture until they are fully incorporated.
Mix in Milk and Add-Ins: Pour the almond milk into the mixture to help moisten the oats. Then, add your choice of raisins, nuts, and dark chocolate chunks. Stir the mixture well to ensure that the add-ins are evenly distributed throughout.
Prepare the Baking Sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it to prevent the cookies from sticking.
Form the Cookies: Spoon out portions of the cookie mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. You can use a spoon or a cookie scoop to make uniform cookies. Flatten the cookies slightly with the back of the spoon or your hand, as they will not spread much during baking.
Bake the Cookies: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the cookies for 15-20 minutes, or until they are firm and lightly golden.
Cool the Cookies: Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Enjoy: Once cooled, your healthy cookies are ready to be enjoyed!
These cookies are a great healthy alternative, perfect for satisfying sweet cravings without added sugars or flours. Enjoy your baking!
