A morning breakfast cookie with no oil or sugar, just oats, raisins, almond butter (homemade) and ‘naner.

I wanted a breakfast cookie Sunday morning, with oats and raisins and maybe even sweetened with a banana…

I knew I didn’t want any agave nectar or sugar. Or butter. Or oil. And applesauce would be fine.

I found a recipe that fit my criteria at the blog ‘Chocolate Covered Katie.’

I used one banana instead of the applesauce. And I was really lucky that I had my own homemade almond butter on hand (which is easy peasy in the food processor).

Shaved almonds and a little agave nectar did go on top of the three cookies for George.

When I got to mixing all the ingredients I added a lot more oats, and even put in some baking soda and powder … I was in the mood for something more cookie-like than dough-like. (So the final mix included 1 1/2 cups oats).

The recipe also says that these aren’t sweet so you can add Stevia. I didn’t add any Stevia or sugar or any other sweetener. I figured the banana and raisins would provide just enough sweetness.

As always, my super duper taste tester husband is the ultimate judge. I had put three cookies on his morning plate. Let’s just say when I returned I found the plate empty with hardly any crumbs apparent.

(Plus tonight I told him I had saved two cookies. He had one more and then I packed one in my bag for tomorrow after yoga practice).
