Do you have a sweet tooth, but don’t want to spoil your newly established goal of eating healthier? We have some baked oatmeal cookies here that have no added sugar, no oil or butter, no flour, no eggs, and no dairy. Talk about a healthy sweet snack.
I made these today and was surprised at how good they actually are. They’re sweetened with bananas and apple sauce. They’re just sweet enough to satisfy that sweet tooth. And you don’t have to stick to raisins as an add-in. By all means, you could add in dry chopped dates, chopped nuts (pecans would be good), dried cranberries or dried blueberries. Anything you want, really.
I think these would not only make a good snack, but also a good on-the-go breakfast. So go whip some up. They’re fast, they’re easy, and you probably have everything you need in your kitchen right now.
