ripe bananas, mashed
This recipe deserves a lot more love! As a former junk food lover who now has to follow a gluten free/lactose free diet, these are heaven sent! Just sweet enough to satisfy that craving, yet there are no added sugars, artificial sweeteners, dairy, or gluten. It is swell baked up in a little loaf pan, too. Try other sources of moisture instead of the banana, like pumpkin or peaches. Add in dried cranberries, walnuts, pumpkin pie spice, or even chocolate chips. I make this recipe several times a week now. Thanks so much!
I made these last night and I liked them. They turned out like a hybrid of banana bread/oatmeal cookie as they had more of a spongy consistancy. I used Silk Almond Vanilla Milk and unsweetened applesauce. I also sprayed the pan with "I can't believe it's not butter" and also sprayed the tops of each cookie with it prior to placing in the oven. I cooked for the full 20 minutes. Makes for a great grab for breakfast or a little snack for anytime of the day. (it's not a cookie consistancy though)
These are terrific as a grab-and-go breakfast on the run or for a roadtrip ... so much healthier than the usual high-calorie transfat-laden options. I started making them when I had some overripe bananas I didn't want to go to waste. Now I deliberately buy big bunches of bananas, hoping some of them get overripe before I've eaten them all. I have used crushed pineapple in place of the applesauce and it's just as tasty. I always add nuts (pecans, sunflower seeds, chopped walnuts, whatever I have). I make mine with either instant steelcut (Trader Joe's) oatmeal or rolled oats. I happen to like the nuttiness of the steelcut, but others prefer the rolled oats. You can add chocolate chips (try the mini-chips), dried cranberries, dates, apricots, etc. I cut my dried fruit into smaller pieces with a pair of kitchen scissors. I've also forgotten the milk, used whole milk, and used almond milk on different occasions ... all with acceptable results. Remember to use a piece of parchment paper or lightly grease the cookie sheet before baking.
ADD peanut butter! This recipe can differ every time you make them. Adding a half cup of peanut butter, and 1/2 cup of chopped nuts, are great options. You can use any type of milk, and I love scrunching up a large size shredded wheat biscuit in place of some of the oatmeal, just before forming cookies. Makes them look more interesting! A fruity version, orange or pineapple juice instead of the almond milk, with dried blueberries, Craisins, whatever, plus coconut. My diabetic partner loves them! I make them small, so he can eat a few whenever he feels a little hungry. If you want to sweeten them up, maple syrup is a great option.
Considering how healthy these are, I think they are good. Don't make them if you are expecting a decadent dessert. They are dense and really more of a breakfast food than a traditional cookie.
I made this as written except I used regular skim milk. What a great recipe for something that doesn't have sugar, flour, or egg! I couldn't even tell there wasn't sugar. It is very cake-like, rather than cookie-like, as another reviewer said. You can skip the raisins and use sugar free applesauce to make it completely sugar free.
I think these are very good. I'm pre diabetic and salt restricted so I don't have to figure out any substitutions. (I like to avoid white flour, sugar and of course, salt.) However, I need the nutrition info.
I would def. give these 5 stars, of course there not going to be perfect because there's no sugar! but if your trying to eat better, these will def. satisfy your craving. LOVE Them! Oh, I also added 1/3 cup coconut and 1/3 cup chopped almonds. yummm
