Recipe 41 Oatmeal-Raisin Breakfast Cookie

I am always on the search for some snack that I can make that is healthy. I can find it hard to come across a recipe which promises to be healthy while still tasting delicious. I found this recipe on Chocolate Covered Katie, a blog which I have been following for a while now so wanted to try it! It combines ingredients that I already have in my cupboards which is a bonus and a great way to use up leftover sad-looking bananas.


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • scant 1/2 cup applesauce or over-ripe banana (mashed)
  • 1/4 cup nut butter of choice (I used salted peanut butter)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp raisins (or other dried fruit, or even chocolate chips)
  • 1/16 tsp salt, plus a tiny pinch more if desired (taste dough to decide)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mash the applesauce or banana with the nut butter, then add all other ingredients and mix until well-combined. Shape into cookies and bake for around 14 minutes.
These were really tasty and slightly gooey for me. I used some leftover bananas from the freezer which I defrosted and paired it with some hazelnut butter. They are perfect with a cuppa and taste much naughtier than they are!
